I keep episode numbers in my file names to ensure that they sort correctly and play back in the correct order due to TVDB's naming conventions.
This seems to confuse Infuse, and it doesn't group together any of those episodes as a series. I have to manually edit the metadata for each file individually (there really needs to be a group editing option).
 

For example:
Battlestar Galactica - 001 - s00e01 - Battlestar Galactica: The Miniseries (1)
Battlestar Galactica - 002 - s00e02 - Battlestar Galactica: The Miniseries (2)
Battlestar Galactica - 003 - s01e01 - 33
Battlestar Galactica - 004 - s01e02 - Water
...
Battlestar Galactica - 054 - s03e19 - Crossroads (1)
Battlestar Galactica - 055 - s03e20 - Crossroads (2)
Battlestar Galactica - 056 - s00e04 - Razor
Battlestar Galactica - 057 - s04e01 - He That Believeth in Me
...
Battlestar Galactica - 074 - s04e18 - Islanded in a Stream of Stars
Battlestar Galactica - 075 - s04e19-20 - Daybreak
Battlestar Galactica - 076 - s00e22 - The Plan

Note that the specials are interleaved between seasons rather than all playing sequentially at the end.
Some TV shows even have specials appearing in the middle of a season.
I'm not sure how the playback order would be handled by Infuse, since it seems to group specials separately from seasons, but it would be a big help if it could identify the shows correctly rather than having to manually edit them all.

If you place the episode number after the S0XE0X it should work as advertised. Having the 001 after the series name but before the season/episode number causes Infuse to think that it's either a series with 001 as part of the name or it can think it's a movie since it expects a season/episode number immediately after the series name.

As a side note, if you manage your files with a Mac there is a batch renaming function built in to the finder.

That defeats the purpose of the naming scheme though, as it ensures that files are sorted in the correct viewing order rather than by series (since s00 is "specials").
I don't just access this library via Infuse, so having filenames sort like this is important to my organizational system.
