I think I know why this is happening, but I’m not sure how to fix it. I use SageTV to handle all recordings, and I provide both a .properties and xml file for metadata.
I believe MCEB is using only the .properties file, which sometimes doesn’t have much info in it, however the .xml does. I think, everything that is needed by MCEB to correctly identify the show is in the .xml.
In the attached case, the show name got duplicated and over wrote the original.
