Within MBC using both Chocolate or ROC MB Intros is executing when I attempt to play any episode of The Daily Show. This occurs from either the EHS or within collection view. Only way to avoid is by pressing the play button while on the poster (of course this does not work at the EHS and TDS has thousands of episodes which makes navigating to them cumbersome).

 

I am using the air-by-date file naming scheme within Sickbeard (SB has been managing this and all my other shows for years) and the show is within the TV collection and file structure. This is the only show out of a couple hundred I have noticed this on and never had a problem previously.

 

The file structure is as follows:

 

\\server\television\The Daily Show with Jon Stewart\The Daily Show with Jon Stewart - 2012-11-15 - Andrew Napolitano.mkv

 

Is this now an invalid convention or a bug within MB Intros?

MB Intros should only play if the media item you are playing is detected as a movie.

 

Your file structure is set up as a movie.  It should be like this:

 

\\server\television\The Daily Show with Jon Stewart\Season A\ The Daily Show with Jon Steward - AxB - Andrew Napolitano.mkv

 

Where A is the correct season number and B is the correct episode number for season A.

I figured that was going to be the case, but had hopes it wasn't since SB handles the initial metadata - also find it ridiculous for a news show to be listed by seasons and without the date, but that's another issue unrelated to MB.
