Question Help! Get seasons & episode data from filename??

Hi guys

I have a fairly simple problem, which seems to be very difficult to solve! Hoping someone can help me out.

1. I'm running SageTV + Phoenix + BMT. Latest versions for everything.
2. I live in Australia & grab my EPG data from OzTivo and use LM Gestion's importer to get it into SageTV.
3. It appears that OzTivo includes the Season & Episode info in the show title. So my shows are title as follows: "TheBigBangTheory-Season3Episode10TheGorillaExperiment-13916457-0.mpg"
4. I have verified the above using BMT - season & episode fields are left blank and the show title is "Season 3 - Episode 10 - The Gorilla Experiment"

So my problem is simple. How do I parse the season & episode info from the title into the season & episode fields in SageTV/BMT to enable accurate grouping by season?

So far I've tried:

1. Renaming files to the format "showTitle-s01e01-episodeTitle.mpg". I don't like this approach & would like to avoid using it.
2. MediaTitles.xml - as far as I can tell there is no way to accomplish the above using XML?
3. Changing the way SageTV names its recordings - cant do it as far as I can tell.

Is there anything I can do at all?

Thanks for your help in advance.

BMT uses "scrapers" to scrape the filenames. They are basically an mix of xml and regular expressions. I've provided a handful of the most common scraper formats, but, I don't have a scraper for the format that you have -provided.

If you feel confident, you can try your hand at creating a scraper... they are located in the STVs/Phoenix/scrapers/xbmc/tvfilenames/ directory.

Thanks Stuckless. Two questions:

1. What is the best way to learn how to write a scraper? I've mastered VFS so I can learn this as well, but what is a good guide? The BMT manual?

2. How do I "activate" a scraper once I have written one? Is that in the user guide? What is the naming convention for the file, etc?

Cheers

I haven't tested this, but the following scraper should work, or at least be a good starting point.

Code:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<!-- 
   TV Filename Scraper.  Used to Scrape Show Name, Season and Episode from a given file URI
   $$1 is always the complete file uri
-->
<scraper name="title-Season00Episode00" content="filename" thumb="thumb.png">
	<!-- 	input: 		$1=complete file uri -->
	<!-- 	returns: 	show name -->
	<GetShowName dest="3">
		<RegExp input="$$1" output="\1" dest="3">
			<expression>.*[/\\](.*)-Season([0-9]+)Episode([[0-9]+)</expression>
		</RegExp>
	</GetShowName>

	<!-- 	input: 		$1=complete file uri -->
	<!-- 	returns: 	Season #-->
	<GetSeason dest="3">
		<RegExp input="$$1" output="\2" dest="3">
			<expression>.*[/\\](.*)-Season([0-9]+)Episode([[0-9]+)</expression>
		</RegExp>
	</GetSeason>
	
	<!-- 	input: 		$1=complete file uri -->
	<!-- 	returns: 	Disc #-->
	<GetEpisode dest="3">
		<RegExp input="$$1" output="\3" dest="3">
			<expression>.*[/\\](.*)-Season([0-9]+)Episode([[0-9]+)</expression>
		</RegExp>
	</GetEpisode>
</scraper>

Actually, one more question stuckless....

Reading the userguide again, you have the following scraper already defined:

"Series S##E##
This is used to match TV shows in the format “SeriesName S##E##.ext”
Examples
House s01e01.avi
House - S01E01 - Episode Title.avi
Lie to Me s02e03.avi
Lie to Me - s01e01 - Pilot Episode.avi"

My files are named almost as per the second example (bolded) above. So if I just go in & amend that scraper to change "S" to "Season" and "E" to "Episode" - would that work??

Ok, we're getting there...

The scraper in your other post did not work. However, I did manage to change the season & episode format to "S01E01".

So now my filenames look like this:

TheBigBangTheory-S2E09TheWhiteAsparagusTriangulation-13920147-0.mpg

However, the default scraper included with BMT (Title-s00e00.xml) does not seem to work... I still don't get any season or episode details populated into BMT when the file is in the new format. S/E fields are blank.

Any ideas on what am I doing wrong?

Thanks.

This may be a dead thread, but if you are still looking for this, there is an option in:
Sage/Setup/Detailed Setup/Customize"
"Include Season and Episode Numbers in Filenames"

Turn this on and optionally make sure
"Include Episode Names in Filenames"

Is also turned on!
Win!
