BMT not recognizing "Space: 1999" tv show

I read that BMT strips special characters before getting info from tvdb.com and I'm guessing that's why it can't pull metadata for "Space: 1999". It shows up as a movie with no info :/

How can I get it to be recognized correctly?

Thanks!

This thread should get you on the right track. I'm not sure if BMT also has issues with colons, but it wouldn't surprise me. You may need to do the same thing I showed for parenthesis.

Thanks, I'm giving that a try now but I probably have an error in the syntax. I've tried it several different ways but can't get any results. Two of many ways I tried are below. Am I supposed to be using the file name or folder name? The file name does not have the : (because windows doesn't like that)

Space 1999 - S01E01 - Breakaway.avi

is how i have them named

Code:
<titles>
    <match>
        <regex>[\\/]Space\: 1999-.*</regex>
        <metadata type="tv" name="tvdb">76366</metadata>
    </match>
</titles>
Code:
<titles>
    <match>
        <regex>[\\/]Space\: 1999[\\/]</regex>
        <metadata type="tv" name="tvdb">76366</metadata>
    </match>
</titles>

I hadn't thought about the colon in the filename not working for a Windows filesystem (d'oh!), so my reference to the colon only added more confusion because you're obviously not using it in the filename; sorry about that. Anyhow, it's based on the filename, so, according to what you have it named, it should be as simple as the following:

Code:
<titles>
    <match>
        <regex>[\\/]Space 1999[\\/]</regex>
        <metadata type="tv" name="tvdb">76366</metadata>
    </match>
</titles>
The reason you're having an issue with the show in the first place is simply because BMT can't handle shows which have years in the title without some minor intervention, not because of the special characters. Since there's no usage of parenthesis (or colons ) in the filename, you could probably even manually add a matcher for this show directly via the BMT UI.

Thanks! I'll try that later tonight. How do I add the matcher in the BMT UI like you suggested? Do you mean the UI in Sage or the web interface? In the web interface, I don't see a category for "metadata ID" when I click on the show but I do see that category for other shows that were correctly detected...

It's in the BMT web UI once you're viewing a show. You just need to manually use BMT to search, select the correct show, then add the matcher. If you're unsure how to do that, I'm pretty certain there's a BMT guide around somewhere. Keep in mind that the new matcher will only work for future episodes.

ok, I'm looking over the BMT user guide. it seems like the MediaTitles.xml method would be best and will be useful for other things too once i get it working. i never knew that existed

one thing i can't find in there (yet) is how to search for a file by file name in BMT if it doesn't have metadata yet. are they all just lumped into the "missing metadata" category? just getting to my space 1999 folder in BMT is painful the way i'm doing it, "video imports by folder" then hit "load" 50 times.

i still can't get it to work using the syntax you provided though. i'm still reading and trying things, but if you have any ideas, please let me know.
i'm wondering if having a year or a number in the title may be causing the issue?

You can also use the search box. You'll want to learn the proper syntax for searching, since it's not nearly as simple as typing in just the title.

Are you certain you're only expecting it to successfully import future episodes? An existing episode would be any filename that Sage has already seen, whether or not it was able to find metadata for it.
