I am looking to organize the TV shows that I have transferred from my Tivo (using Pytivo) for viewing in Kodi. Kodi expects that TV shows video files have the season number and episode number in their path:
Season ## - Episode ##
"Season [season#] - Episode [episode#]" anywhere in the file name
I have created a small script to convert the Pytivo metadata
.txt files to
.nfo format for Kodi (and other media managers) but have hit a snag: The Tivo metadata does not contain season and episode numbers, all I have is the TV Show Series name and the Episode Name / Description. Example:
seriesTitle: NOVA description: Planets are explored. Is there somewhere else in the solar system where life might flourish? title: NOVA showingBits: 12291 displayMajorNumber: 712 isEpisode: true originalAirDate: 2019-07-24T00:00:00Z programId: EP0000017787-0407556457 callsign: WUNEDT2 time: 2019-07-25T01:00:00Z episodeTitle: Inner Worlds vExecProducer: Apsell|Paula S.
A quick Google search reveals this particular example is Season 46 Episode 12
I am looking for a media manager / organizer which can scrape the actual season and episode numbers for me because so far, every one I have found only scrapes metadata about the episode which it extracted from the filename.
I have already tried:
- Tiny Media Manager (Detected the TV shows but didn't see episodes at all)
- TV Rename (Couldn't make it work / read the NFO files)
- Jellyfin (didn't detect the shows at all)
Is there any media manager which can look up TV Show episode numbers for me, and rename the files?
