I don't know many people with the WD and those that have it don't have internet and don't even upgrade their firmware.

Maybe so - I don't stream directly from the internet myself (I use PlayLater to record and VideoReDo to edit internet content before watching as a local file). I think most posters here are heavily oriented to local file content, but even so they typically might use Youtube occasionally...

Ok, so I'm trying to add tv shows, but I get no meta data found error. Folders are structured as ShowName/Season #/ 01 EpisodeName. Mkv

My structure wrong? If so, what's the proper structure?

Episode titles don't matter - they just need to start like "NCIS S01E01 "...

ShowName /Season# /S01E01.mkv

That sound about right?

The filename can include the title, so
NCIS S01E01 Pilot
and
NCIS S01E01 Yankee White
will both work, and I think lower case s01e01 works OK.
All that matters is the correct series name + SnnEnn - the XML filename will match the MKV or MP4 or whatever filename, but the title IN the XML may be different from the filename. If the XML file is present, the title contained in it is what the SMP will display. Just try a few and you'll see how it works...

Edit> But note that the XML title might not be as well-formed as your filenames, and the list may not be ordered neatly. You can edit the XML manually or with a program (I used an Excel macro) to get clean titles, but personally I found the whole process to be far more trouble than it was worth for TV episodes...

..or use a third party tool like The XML Fetcher, it doesn't care what your naming scheme is.
