Adding TV series

Adding TV series

Post#1 » Sun Jan 08, 2017 6:29 pm

Hello all.

First post, and don't think its too tough. I simply have not used WMC much, but have simply used the filling system. Putting a new HTPC in for my sister, and sorting through file is a bit clunky for her. Media center looks great for movies, but how can I, or can I, add tv series under TV rather than cluttering movies with hundreds of individual titles?

While you might be able to add enough meta-data, My simplistic suggestion is to create a folder called TV inside the movies directory you have added, and below that a folder for each series, and a folder under that for each season, then name them so they sort is episode order...

c:\Video\Doctor Who\S06\Doctor Who (2005)_S06E10_The Girl Who Waited.mp4
or
c:\Video\Farscape\Farscape Season 3\Farscape [3x07] - Thanks for Sharing - AMC.avi

Besides Emby, another program to try is RecordedTVHD.
