Hopefully this will help some of you.
Tv shows in LinuxMCE if you are not aware need attributes applied to the actual Video File. You may be used to applying them to the tv show folder or season in the past with other systems. It is tedious work to get all your shows setup with cover art but once completed they are pretty easy to get to.
The way I do it allows a search via title or episode directly.
Ok so my naming convetion is as such
tvshow/season/episodes (IE show name s01e01 - episode.avi)
So goto FAMS (files and media sync) in webadmin. my data is public/data/other yours maybe different.
I got to /public/data/other/Windows Share-disk9/TV9 for example and click on it now it expands the tree and gives me a list of the tv shows in that folder. I click on one of the tv shows in that list and it exapnds and gives me the seasons click on that (all in the left column) and then on the right side I get the episodes within that season.
Now! before hand I dwnlded all the per season cover arts and modified them to remove any borders etc.
So I click on the first episode then browse for a picture (find the pic on my local drive) hit open then click add picture (A caveat here - Once you click open on the cvr art it will paste the path into the LMCE attributes window for you before you hit add the picture copy that path and then from then on for that season you can just mouseover the add picture path and click paste and then click on add. It really speeds up the process instead of browsing for the same file everytime). It does. Now I scroll down to short attributes and add a title.
Here is my trick in the title I put for Seinfeld lets say - I type in SEI101 The Seinfeld Chronicles and I hit add. This now gives me a title in the list above. Then I set the media sub-type to TV Shows and the file type to Standard Def (this just allows me less scrolling in the UI instead of lumping it all in the DVD group) You can use any letter for your show description but the numbers are the key. Like 101 = season 1 episode 1 etc... Now click update. I said it was tedious you have to do this for all of your TV shows individually. You can of course ad the same cover art to the group of episodes at once from the top level folder and I think I tried that once but could not do something else after I did that so I would rather do it this way and no all is well.
Now when your UI is populated you will have for instance all your Seinfeld Season 1 pictures in order and on the right will be the episode titles with the 101 preceding them. I have done all my Seinfeld, King Of Queens etc.. this way and they all stay in perfect order. Seasons 1-9 and all the episodes in line as well. This makes scrolling to a specific episode a breeze and searching easier as well.
Now at search I type SEI and it pulls up my Seinfeld episodes it I type sei105 it takes me right to Season 1 Episode 5 in the search window.
Hope it helps.
