Here I see several methods of filename conventions for the use of tv series. But I use a different scheme:

TV Shows/The Big Bang Theory
> Season 1
> > S01E01 - Pilot.ext
>> S01E02 - The Big Bran Hypothesis.ext
>> S01E03 - The Fuzzy Boots Corollary.ext
>> S01E04 - The Luminous Fish Effect.ext
>> etcetera

Is it possible to add that one?

I believe this should actually be working in the current version.

What type of device are you streaming from? Are you using UPnP/DLNA by chance?

Infuse 5.6 with a fresh new look + HDR is now available!

Nope. I just tried it and unfortunately it doesn't.

I am not sure what you're asking though. I use an Apple TV 4th Gen which is hooked up to the network. My main computer (a Mac Mini with a bunch of external drives) is serving as a media server and there the layout is as said (/Volumes/Entertainment/Series/The Big Bang Theory/Season 1.... etc.). They all get thrown on the Other pile.

I just did a quick test here with those filenames and it was working well for me.

A few things to check.

1. Metadata Fetching is ENABLED in Infuse > Settings (we also recommend keeping Embedded Metadata DISABLED).
2. Check to see if Local Metadata is set for any folders. Do this by browsing through folders to find these episodes and ensure the words 'Local Metadata' do not appear in the top right. See attached for an example of what you don't want to see.
3. If Local Metadata is enabled for a folder, long-press on a folder icon and select the 'Use Online Metadata' option.

I'm sorry I was too quick. Apparently it put it on the Other pile to revisit later and handle it. After watching another show I revisited the Library View and then it suddenly had some 940 files in TV and 230 in Movies. It did make a bunch of mistakes though... Two Stupid Dogs with names like "201-a Stunt Dogs [Moonsong].avi" it put under a completely different TV show. I can imagine it can't find that one but at least put it in the Other pile instead of TV Shows.

Great!

Infuse will start by lumping everything into the Other category while it scans through your items. As things are matched they will be moved out and placed into their respective areas. Infuse does need to be open and idle in order to complete its scan (at least for now).

With regard to the last title, 3 digit season/episode designations (201-a Stunt Dogs [Moonsong].avi) aren't supported right now and Infuse will most likely try to match these as movies instead of TV shows. We may look at adding support for these in the future.

It was the name given in the download. When I am ready to watch it I always rename it to the SxxExx - Episode Title, as I hate these weird filenames.

Still not really impressed /Users/xxxx/Apple TV Extension/Dragon Riders Of Berk/Season 6/S06E01 - Defenders Of The Wing (2).mp4 and it is being detected as http://thetvdb.com/?tab=series&id=156971&lid=7 It should be http://thetvdb.com/?tab=series&id=261202&lid=7 I can rename the directory to Dragons and see what happens but I doubt it... Other files will not even get found and dumped in the Others category.

In order for Infuse to get accurate metadata the names have to be consistent (or at least close) to what is listed on TheTVDb. In this case, renaming the folder to 'Dragons' or 'Dreamworks Dragons' should give you the correct match.

Thanks, slowly but surely the while thing is shaping up okay. A few series I have renamed, like Doctor Who to Doctor Who (2005) and now the Others have diminished to some 100 files. One problem though is a tv series called Taboo. TMDB had the correct one https://www.themoviedb.org/tv/65708-taboo?language=en-US, TheTVDB doesn't even know of its existence. It's there a way I can force TMDB you be used?

It looks like TheTVDb lists this as Taboo (2017).
