DeVicious, I am having some problems with getting the TV episodes in correct order when using the media library, some seem to work, while others do not. This is what I believe you are saying to do so let me know if I am at least on the correct track, or if I am missunderstanding you.
I had all of the sheets made in the previous version of Thumbgen with your templates, so deleted the everything except the videos.
Named all the videos to the spec in your User guide (EX: Bored.To.Death.HDTV.S01.E01 etc)
I installed the latest version of Thumbgen (220.127.116.11), and then refered to your Black Mamba User Guide and added all of the common files etc.
Went through and built your templates for Movies and TV to the spec in the user guide, adding the naming convention you specified
Regenerated the all the sheets and now the XMLs have , <series_name>, <episode_name>, <season_number> , <episode_number> and like you example
I deleted all of the “.wd_tv” directories on the network drive that has my TV Shows
I cleared the media library and then had it rebuilt
I Set he the “Sorting” to alphabetical
I am now getting the main directories for each TV show in alphabetical order, but the episodes themselves are not. If I sort by date instead, I seem to have better luck in most of them, but not all and with a few bizarre sorting anomolies that I cannot figure out), but then of course my TV shows have no order that I can figure out when viewing by folder.
Any ideas? Seems like from your post you have been able to make this work with media library. of course it all works perfect if I connect by network share, but I have many shares on multiple machines on this network so it is kind of a pain to go that route if I can make media library work
Thanks, any help greatly appreciated
It’s working now for TV Shows Sorting Function for the media library.
It works but requires to change sorting order for movies and TV shows.
Sort by TV SHOWS / ALPHABETICALLY ^
I had some weirdness myself when i turned it on the first time, i had to clear the library and you want to delete all thumb folders on your devices, otherwise it is showing the first episode thumb as a folder and the folder.jpg for the first episode (uncomfirmed, don’t know if that does anything or if we need the meta thumb for folders now)
