So what is TV Rename?

TV Rename is a media management tool that runs on Windows 7 and later and looks after all your TV show files; making them presentable for Kodi (XBMC), Mede8er, PyTivo and other media hubs.

On the surface TV Rename will “fix” the names of TV shows…
You have a few show episodes saved as video files, they have names like:


Let’s clean this up, including the season, show and episode details like:

The Shannara Chronicles - S02E03 - Graymark.avi

But wait, there's more!

TV Rename can: -

Rename files using data from The TVDB and rules you can configure
Monitor specified folders for new TV show files

Media Library - a folder (or folders) somewhere on your PC or NAS or whatever, with a bunch of TV show files in it (them).

Once TV Rename knows about your Media Library it can: -

Copy (or move) files from monitored folders to your Media Library
Download TV show posters and images and create meta-data automatically
List any missing TV show episodes/seasons in your Media Library
Create web searches to help you find missing TV show files
Tell you how long you’ll have to wait until the next episode of your current favourite TV show airs
