The BBC, History channel, etc. are well aware of what we do and are kind enough to look the other way because they realize we mean no harm and are doing our bests to promote the shows and gain them larger audiences.Personally, I don't mind either way... My question is more of a peripheral one... Changing the naming scheme to something that's on "the scene" won't make it more of a target for takedown notices, will it?
See http://forums.finalgear.com/the-site-itself/utorrent-rss-feed-guide-28795/I'm okay with either, though I like how the new one takes less space than the old, and when I label original videos I use an sxxexx format myself.
I've read several posts saying people have their setup automated, which is unknown to me. I don't want to deflect the thread, so if anyone would like to pm me about what the automation does for you and how to make it happen, I'd be grateful.
that's my idea for a compromise between the scene standard and our "standard". I realy don't like the dot between Top Gear in the scene standard, cause when you are using an Media server like PS3 Media Server it'll show you the Filenames on your DLNA device with a thumbnail of the file next to it. When you have Top.Gear .... in there it makes look shit tbh (just my imo). Also prefer our [SeasonxEpisode] layout. For me it's quicker to read and easier on the eyes, when I'm on the PC. Also it would fit better to the old naming style so most people probably won't need to rename their files.Top Gear.[S20x06.720p].[2013.08-04].x264-FoV.mkv
Yeah, it's because of your crazy filename system. Our current naming scheme happens to work with Plex for Top Gear UK fine but doesn't match Top Gear US due to us calling it "Top Gear America". It made me realize that sticking to a de facto standard is a lot better than trying to come up with our own format.I hoped to get TGUK, TGUS and TGAUS episodes (among others) to recognize in Plex or XBMC with no luck.
I tried using both Plex and XBMC with the original names, and I think it was America that didn't recognize. I found a few forum posts around that tried to explain the proper way to rename the shows to work with TVDB and Plex, but never got all of mine to work, including using separate folders for each season, so I gave up and came up with my own 'crazy' method for personal searches. I'd still like to get everything into Plex or XBMC if I could figure out what they wanted them named as.Yeah, it's because of your crazy filename system.

Here's what my Plex looks like, 100% of this was automated. So cool.
I have mine how we distribute them. For example 720p:I'd still like to get everything into Plex or XBMC if I could figure out what they wanted them named as.
I don't think folders matter, just filename. But I could be wrong.So Plex doesn't need each season sorted by individual folders?
(oops, sorry, re-read and saw folder names)
And were you able to get America and Australia to recognize?
The file we distribute is not made by us. We source it from the Scene and that same file is distributed on many other sites, a large majority of them being private ratio-based websites. So people can snag the file from there and help seed here or visa versa. Now that we're using the same filename (at least on Windows, uppercase vs. lowercase would make it different on Linux and maybe Mac), people can more easily seed the same file to multiple trackers. Still, it's easy to point a torrent at any file you want. I used to do that.What are you meaning by changing the path to seed other torrents? Why would you want to seed to somebody that downloaded a different file than the one from here at Final Gear? Am I missing something here?
