I have had to figure out how to update this db because of the unknown-genre-if-you-refresh-library-and-use-video_ts-folders bug (as I can see it has been around for over 3 years so isn’t likely to be fixed soon!).
I was looking at the db to see what else I could fix at the same time and found some interesting fields that might be useful and was wondering if anyone knew what they were for before I start messing with them. My aim is to get a bit more categorisation of the media as the genre field only holds a single value.
The fields are:-
I also did a test info scan on an X-Files DVD folder and forced it to use TVDB so that I could see what info is added to the db, but none of the expected fields in the database (e.g. season_name, series_name, episode_num, series) were populated. I think I may have done the lookup wrong, but changing the meta source to TVDB and doing a manual lookup didn’t give me any option to choose this information - it just let me choose a generic high-level X-Files entry.
How do I get the TV series lookup to obtain this extra info and populate those database fields correctly?
