Season name = Year

After checking the forums, the general feeling on documentary shows (e.g. PBS Frontline) that have been long running is to name them with the 4-digit year as the season number and then each show has an episode number, such as "2008x01".

I've tried using the /4digitTV modifier in the mediascraper.defaults and tried a few things with folder/file name conventions, but I was wondering if anyone had an idea for a workaround for this.

Some things I have tried:

Frontline (PBS) 2008x01 - The Medicated Child.mpg with /4digitTV on
Frontline (PBS) 2008 - The Medicated Child.mpg with /4digitTV off

I'm probably clutching at straws, as I'm not sure mediascraper can work around this naming format that tvdb has adopted.

Randomly, someone over there has duplicated the season listing and also done it numerically, so I have a temporary fix. I've inquired about fixing the entries to go to a SSxEE convention, but the moderators prefer the year format (which is reasonable IMO).

Any thoughts?
