The supported date formats are:

“yyyy-MM-dd”, “dd-MM-yyyy”, “MM-dd-yyyy”, “yy-MM-dd”, “dd-MM-yy” and “MM-dd-yy”

And the “date separators” can be any of: - / . , “ “ (a space)

Default: Un-ticked

The Preferred language: drop-down sets the language for returned data when requesting information from TheTVDB API. TV Rename will request “English” If the selected language is not available.

The Mode: drop-down allows you to preview functionality that is being worked on but not yet ready for the mainstream releases. The options available are “Production” and “Beta”.

In “Production” mode the application looks and behaves as normal.

In “Beta” mode a new menu called Beta appears between Tools and Help which gives you access to preview upcoming additions and enhancements.

If you select “Beta”, TV Rename will offer you “Beta” and “RC” updates as well as the “Production” updates.

Default: Production
