I'm writing to confirm the latest version of BMT. I currently have 4.10.1, but I see references to BMT4.5. Is there a later version available?

4.10.x is newer than 4.5.x

This episode has 3 digits and it seems to get imported (along with all the other episodes with 3 digits) as a movie.
Many years ago it did have that limitation... but it hasn't existed for a long time.

Most likely is that the lookup for "The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon" failed, and the default behaviour when something fails is to try and search it using a movie, and then if that fails, it just gets added as a movie.

You could try adding a Matcher for "The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon" and that should work. You can do that within BMT. (Add Matcher I think it's called... you basically do a lookup and find the metadata firtst, manually, and then click save and then click Add Matcher... if all your files are in a "The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon" directory, then use the directory option.

Delete fanart

Total BMT noob here. I did read the available docs, but they didn't cover my issues:
1. How do I get it to grab metadata based on filename? My recordings are named SeriesName-Episodename.ext, and with the Sage9 update about 50 of them suddently became "no data". I'd like to use BMT to fix that by scanning the filename to get & set the correct metadata. But when I search for files with "no data" and then select one to find metadata, it finds nothing, and I can't see a way to get it to search based on the filename.
2. I told it I didn't want fanart, but I found my drive now filled with it. Can I just delete it (and will it then stay deleted? I don't use it and don't want it taking up space).
3. Similarly, can I just delete (or put into a .zip file) and store elsewhere, if they are useful, all of the .properties files that got created? - and keep them from being created unless I ask for them specifically?
