I’m having some trouble matching metadata on programs recorded with Plex. Because Plex has a crappy EPG now, sometimes the only information that comes in is the show name, subtitle, and recorded date (and even that is only because @Goose implemented some additional metadata logic to parse it from the file name).
Unfortunately, per the pinned post, MCEBuddy will need the show name (have it), and the original broadcast date (shows as 1900-01-01T00:00:00), season/episode info (blank), or the IMDB ID for the show (expectedly blank) to complete matching, and I’m looking for creative ways of making this work.
For most (maybe all?) of my shows, I’m only recording the first run of them. Therefore, in nearly all cases, the broadcast date is the same as the recorded date. Is there a way I can tell MCEBuddy to treat the recorded date as the broadcast date if no broadcast date information is found?
I’m also open to other ideas to fix this, but this is all I can think of for now. Conversion log attached so you can see my issue. Thanks for any ideas.
