Naming of Recorded Files

Post by clag515 »

Hopefully I have the right forum for this. I seem to be having an issue with how my recorded shows are displayed on the "RECORDED" tab. I will use the ESPN 30 for 30 series as my example. When I look on my NAS, all of the episodes show up in the "Sporting Events" folder but when I view the "RECORDED" tab on HDHomeRun (from what I can tell) they are categoriezed into two different "30 for 30" series. I have about 5 episodes which are in a group of there own and the rest display together. Below are examples of the file naming convention for the series. Only difference I can see is how the season/episode is notated.

30 for 30 S01E22 20100921 [20180519-0130].mpg
30 for 30 S03E10 20160714 [20160715-0100].mpg
30 for 30 EP88 20101019 [20161225-0900].mpg
30 for 30 EP432 20151212 [20161218-1200].mpg

Above and beyond this file naming, are there tags like with Audio files that I can update so everything gets categorized together? I've also noticed if there is an episode with a part 1 and a part 2 they end up with the same title and I can only tell them apart when I read the description. Any information on this would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance.
