@TonyPH (we posted at the same time, I keep my answer anyways for people to learn about the issue)
i made some test runs and the TV episode can only be recognized by using the build in scraper since no other software is using these metatags. The smart thing to do would for the library to read the season and episode from the filename.
This means no external movie sheet will work and no content will be found
The hub generates this kind of meta tags
Name Of Series 1 - 8 Name of Episode
<series_name>Name Of Series</series_name>
<episode_name>The Straw In My Donut Hole</episode_name>
this comes with a list of problems in itself besides being incompatible to movie sheets.
Season and Episode have no leading zero when in single digits
Which means each series with 10+ seasons will sort like this 10,11,12,1,2,3,4…
Episodes are sorted 10,11,12,1,2,3,4
I have not tested this thoroughly if the hub sorts that out but it is illogical and ignores standard release naming.
A standard release is named s01e08 (with leading zero)
The problem continues in displaying the file name it first puts the name of the series then the season # then the episode # and then the title, which means you have the longest title in the history of the digital age.
The library is not sorting by the metatag <episode_number> which would make perfect sense and could be implemented into Thumbgen by sending an sweet Email to him, it actually is sorting by the title…
which actually would create a title like this (real life scenario)
"Two And A Half Men 9-13 Slowly and in a Circular Fashion"
possibly this doesnt matter as it doesn’t come with a movie sheet anyways but in order to make movie sheets work I would have to use this crazy long title which will NOT fit in any movie sheet i know of.
For the sake of the argument and being completely in sheeple mode and willing to scarifice my freedom of choice when it comes to designs… if this filter would be adjusted to a more logic sorting method it would still require me to hit the filter button anytime I switch to another media format and all of that is unecessary and less complicated if the hub would sort by Folder & Filename because based on the standard naming the episode is always named
“seriesname.s01.e01.mkv” regardless how many episodes / seasons name of the show and whatnot written behind the episode info, it is always sorting it right because this is how any computer in the world is sorting files and the easiest way to deliver a user friendly version is by giving the people what they know instead of creating an nearly impossible scenario to figure out. Anyone with external generated movie sheets can not use the TV filter. That is a lot of people and all of then would have to sacrifice their standards in some way.
