Like: TV-C to C:\video and TV-G to G:\
You still have to select a category for each NZB.
then is will not be auto.

These posts were SUPER helpful in setting up my post processing with SickBeard and Sab, but when it moves the file it includes the release group in the name (D:\TV Shows\showname\season ##\showname - S##E## - episodetitle.720p.release.group.ext)

Any suggestions to only get the episode name?

Is it not possible to use UPPERCASE LETTERS in Category names?

Categories are case insensitive, because you can also use them in filenames and the filesystems of most operating systems are also case insensitive.

Every time I try to set a Category name like "TV" or "Movies" sabnzbd forcibly converts it to "tv" and "movies" so I wouldn't describe that as case insensitive, it seems to have a clear preference for all lowercase no matter what I want.... ;-p

We choose always lower case, because of that file system thing :)

That was a really long way to say "No". :)

I would love it if each download would produce one folder, which would contain one episode in the SxxExx format. It seems like the string %sn/S%0sE%0e - %en/%sn - S%0sE%0e - %en.%ext should do that, but that yields a folder with the show name, within which are separate folders for each episode. Can someone suggest a string that would result in one download, one folder of one show with its job name and SxxExx info?

Every / gives a new folder-level, so you have 2 directory-levels:

%sn/ --> Serie Folder

S%0sE%0e - %en/ --> Episode Folder

%sn - S%0sE%0e - %en.%ext --> File

So simply removing the %sn/ at the beginning ought to do the job for me! Will give it a try. Many thanks!!

EDIT - It worked! Thanks!
