Handling of dates in TV shows

I'm just starting with this so apologies if this is a simple question.
I have a regular soap opera where the filename is in the format
title YYYYMMDD.pdtv.capper.avi
BMT can't find it (in fact think its a movie) presumably because the date is not being recognised.
What's my best option for handling these automatically? I guess that I could use regex to rename the files to
title YYYY-MM-DD.pdtv.capper.avi
as they are copied into the SageTV import directory. Would that work (do I need to strip the cappers handle and the SD/HD flag from the filename also?) Or is there a way to do it within BMT.

BMT sees the YYYY and assumes it is a movie because that is the movie format it searches for. TV shows are "Title - S01E01" with the season and episode numbers.

YYYYMMDD is not configured in the TV Scrapers. You can try to add a new scraper for this... or it might be easier to rename to the supported format YYYY-MM-DD
