ShoutingMan posted a topic in General/WindowsHow do I re-order a multi-season TV series to match its DVD or other non-aired ordering? I know how to re-order a single season like Firefly: lock metadata, then manually edit Season and Episode numbers. That doesn't work for multiple seasons. I'm trying to get Futurama into either theTVDB's or Wikipedia's (which uses The Infosphere's) ordering. The problem is that a TV-season contains episodes spanning two, three, maybe four DVD-seasons. Altering editing the metadata season and episode values, there are unexpected side effects. You get a new mixture of the episodes with their revised ordering but in their original season. And then you get the re-ordered episodes for that season. Here's two images to illustrate: Futurama S1: Everything's ok here. There are four episodes pulled in from season 2 to complete season 1. The ordering looks good. Futurama S2: The multi-season side effects appear. The four episodes originally in Season 2 that were revised to be in Season 1, appear with their S1 metadata in the beginning of S2. And then the correctly revised S2 list follows. Let jump to Futurama S4: Now the season listing is preceded with 9 episodes from the aired Season 3 that were revised to fall into other Seasons. Season 5 is especially screwy since "Season 5" according to the Wikipedia ordering are the Made-for-TV movies, which are filenamed and stored in Season 00 (Specials) to conform to theTVDB listing to try and get metadata. What metadata do I need to edit and how do I edit it to force Emby to conform to the desired season listing? I'm open to revising NFO files, video filenames, etc. I accept that Emby doesn't support DVD-ordering automatically. And it doesn't have the Reordering Agent that Plex does. But I'm looking for a solution and willing to try the manual editing, if necessary. Thanks!
