    Proper file naming when a season is not diffined.

    So I was in the dollar store over the weekend and found ESPN's 30 for 30 boxed set.
    The episodes are not done by season. instead it is groups of years by volume.
    So where I would normally name them as "30 for 30 - S01E01 - Kings Ransom.mkv"
    It is not S01xx It is Volume 1 ,2 ,3 ,4 maybe 5? looks like 30-40 episodes per volume. Years are 2009 vol1, 2012 vol2. 2015 vol3 and 2019 vol4.

    So should I do: "30 for 30 - V01E01 - Kings Ransom.mkv"
    or "30 for 30 - E01 - Kings Ransom.mkv"
    or "30 for 30 - (2009) - E01 - Kings Ransom.mkv"

    Also includes bonus disc etc. haven't looked at that stuff yet.

    For $1 / volume it a good deal. I did watch a couple and they were very well done.

    That would be correct how you would name 2009.

    30 for 30 - s01e01 - King's Ransom
    30 for 30 - s01e02 - The Bond That Wouldn't Die
    30 for 30 - s01e03 - Small Potatoes Who Killed The USFL?
    Just like that all the way down to
    30 for 30 s01e30 - Pony Excess

    Of course season 2 & 3 would be s02exx & s03exx

    Bonus/Specials are always - s00exx

    30 for 30 - s00e01 - Believeland (Alternate Ending)
    30 for 30 -s00e2 - Celtics/Lakers Best Of Enemies (Parts 1-3)

    2012 title is different I believe, so use that:

    ESPN 30 for 30 Shorts

    ESPN 30 for 30 Shorts - s01e01 - Here Now
    ESPN 30 for 30 Shorts - s01e02 - Arnold's Blueprint
    And so forth to s01e69 - Subject To Review

    The above should work for you...............awesome score on the discs!!

      When in doubt, the best approach is to check how the information is stored in themoviedb.org. This is where the media server retrieves the meta information for videos.

      In this case DowntoEarth is correct. The individual volumes are stored as seasons. However, there does not appear to be any season level posters stored in that database, so the media server will just show blank posters there.

      Also, the above naming for bonus/specials is correct, but I have never been able to get the server to download season 00 metadata. While I could be wrong, it appears the media server has a bug in it that prevents it from getting season 00 info.Would be nice if that worked as many shows have pilot episodes that are only listed in season 00.
