How to get file metadata from WinTV8 / MCEBuddy

I'm using Wintv8 with a Hauppauge HVR955Q for capturing. Then I'm using MCEBuddy for comskip and transcoding. However, I can't get either WinTV or MCEBuddy to provide metadata for the file so I can name the file <SeriesName>_<Season/Episode>_<EpisodeName>. WinTV is providing a basic file name and MCEBuddy can't find the episode. TitanTV provides the metadata but Wintv doesn't appear to have an option to use it.

Is there a way to do this with the setup I have?

What guide data do you use? I use Schedules Direct with Next PVR, Schedules Direct puts the season/episode numbers and episode title in the file name.

WinTV doesn't use a guide data provider. You can manually schedule recordings by channel/date/time or you can schedule recordings from the TitanTV website. Either way WinTV doesn't provide enough info in the file name or metadata for MCEBuddy to identify and rename the recordings.
