Too many folder created for same show

Post by Xmantium » June 16th, 2015, 2:37 pm

I have

Code: Select all

%sN/%s.N.S%0sE%0e.%e.n.%ext
which used to give perfect
Show Name/Show.Name.S01E05.Episode.Name.[DTS].avi
But now i get multiple folders created for same show on my Linux NAS box, example
Orange Is The New Black
orange is the new black
Orange is the New Black
Orange Is the New Black

I would prefer the first folder "Orange Is The New Black"

That's a consequence of using a case-sensitive file system,
combined with sloppy posters.
It helps if you use an indexer that inserts meta data, like proper titles in the NZB files.
It is possible to force it all to lowercase in the sort expression.
Surround the part to be lowercased with { }

I would love to have an Capitalized feature. Maybe < > or [ ]? :)

From memory: SABnzbd should already capitalize show names.
I'll check.

I'm afraid that the pattern key shown in Sorting is wrong.
%sn %s.n and %s_n deliver capitalized words in the title.
%sN %s.N and %s_N deliver the original title.

Your expression should be:
%sn/%s.n.S%0sE%0e.%e.n.%ext

Previously you must have download correctly capitalized titles,
because the table and the actual working have been different all these years.

I'll fix the pattern key table in release 0.8.0 Alpha3.
