Help/Cheatsheet for therenamer.com users that use Kodi networked library
tl;dr: quick instructions to start using TV Rename for users coming over from TheRenamer. If we can import data fine, otherwise we start anew at TV Rename. Confused also about TV Rename creating .NFO files vs letting Kodi scrape.
TV Rename looks amazing and robust with WAY too flexible for me to figure out what I need and what I don't.
Have used therenamer.com for years. It ran wonderfully until theTVDB went to API 2.0. TheRenamer hasn't been updated in 4 years and that is why a lot of us are here.
Program still works with other databases (imdb, thetvdb, etc). The website is still up.
Data that is behind therenamer includes support files that have show name and corresponding theTVDB ID Number. There are separate files for each scraper service. Movies, TV, Anime, Fights. Another file independent of scraper force renames the show name - ie: The Late Late Late Show with James Corden. I have it force renamed to James Corden and Kodi picks it up just fine with theTVDB scraper (when the API is working LOL).
