I've got an issue on both iOS iPad running latest Infuse and my Apple TV 4K
Neither iOS or ATV4K recognize Blue Bloods files (season 5 or season 6) as TV shows
Some notes to perhaps further characterize the issue:
Both of iPad and ATV4K recognize the Better Call Saul season 3 folder contents as TV shows (iOS even has the nice episode indicators) - but I added that back in fall of 2017, so it is nicely in my Metadata cache on iOS
If I go to the "Edit Metadata" from one of those Blue Bloods episodes and try to Search .. I get "Nothing Found" for ANY TV show name I try typing. Even if I type the name of a movie at that point, I get "Nothing Found"
I've got the files labeled "Blue Bloods S06E01.m4v" .. etc from season 6 and "Blue.Bloods.S05E01.HDTV.mp4" .. etc from season 5
Those Blue Bloods seasons were added in the last week .. season 6 tonight
Maybe not so much "solved", but all issues eventually went away.
I did a couple restarts of both the iPad Air 2 and ATV 4K - forced a rescan - and everything started working.
- was recognized as a TV show
- the "Edit Metadata" option showed the recognized TV title and several alternatives .. and the Search stopped returning "Nothing Found"
I've gotta think there was some temporary flakiness over at TheTVDB.com
Oh and just to note that I originally had the majority of Season 5 files labeled with:
and it was true that the more rigorous 'S05E01' format was recognized, where the '501' was not. Of course the '.HDTV-blah' stuff might have caused the breakage, but I'm moving on at this point.
