I am pretty solid with Mediamaster and use it to update my library. I find it works great on movies.

If it can't find it - I have it set to ask me. I just enter in the IMDB movie ID number and boom. Done. Perfect every time.

For TV shows- It does not seems to have this feature.

For some reason I can't get it to recognize nip tuck series. I tried a few different main folder names.

If I enter the IMDB number it think's it's a movie. It names the folder funny, and does not organize the metadata for seasons correctly - or fetch the mediabrowser banners and stuff.


Anyone have advice ?????

I tried NIP TUCK

NIP-TUCK

NIPTUCK

I am confused what to do.

Entering the IMDB number does not work well on TV shows.

I don't need to rename it. I want Mediamaster to fetch the coverart metadata and backdrops... folder icons and such.



OK I tried it and it came out as "NIP" because windows declined the " / " for a folder name.

Have you tried 'Nip-Tuck' as an alternative - don't use it but might work.

Putting in the IMDB number turns it into a movie and it does not show properly ... as such.

I want to keep it as a TV SHOW.

Sorry should have read a little further back - why not ask on the MCM forums, seems a more likely place to get more interest than here.

I had the same problem with not only Nip/Tuck but many other series so I just manually enter each one into media master now and then I can manipulate the meta-data any way I want. I don't like the description for many of my movies and TV shows because they seem to describe every minute of the program instead of just giving the plot line.

So you saying you manually fetched every episide and edited it?

I have all 6 seasons. That seems like a lot of work for something medimaster normally would do automatically and to my satisfaction.

Or did I not understand?

I know it sounds like a lot of work but the Info from MCM - IMDB is often incomplete and/or inaccurate. My way is not for everyone but it works for me and I don't mind a little extra effort to get the result I want.

I just used the RageTV ID and it worked great.
