The Command Line

A number of TV Rename’s functions can be accessed using the command line. If TV Rename is already running any CLI activity will be directed towards the running instance.

Main Options

/scan

Tell TV Rename to run a full scan.

/recentscan

Tell TV Rename to run a recent scan.

/quickscan

Tell TV Rename to run a quick scan.

/doall

Tell TV Rename execute all the actions it can (including a scan).

/quit

Tell a hidden TV Rename session to exit.

Hidden Behaviour

/hide

Hides the User Interface and associated message boxes from view.
Defaults to not add missing folders (providing “/createmissing” is not set).
Exits once actions complete.

/unattended

This option means that the main UI is shown, but does not put up any blocking UI elements that need hunman interaction. Mainly this means that error and warning are just recorded in the log and the user does not get a message box notification.

Override Options

/createmissing

Creates folders if they are missing.

/ignoremissing

Ignore missing folders.

/norenamecheck

Allows a request to an existing TV Rename session to scan without renaming.

Settings Files

/recover

Recover will load a dialog box that enables the user to recover a prior TVDB.xml or TVRenameSettings.xml file. (Normally this dialog would only appear if the current settings are corrupted.)

/userfilepath:BLAH

Sets a custom folder path for the settings files.
