So the message basically says that ffMPEG was unable to create the file. This can be for several reasons (some pretty obvious of course, but I'll mention them anyway in case someone reads this later on);
The target is readonly (eg H-drive).
The user is not allowed to write in "H:\Last Night's\The.Outer.Limits.(1995).S01-07.10bit.DVDRip.2CH.x265.HEVC\The Outer Limits Season 2\".
The H-drive is full or does not have enough space left.
Something is wrong with ffMPEG.
The filename contains illegal characters (which does not seem to be the case).
I presume you wanted to include meta data. Give it a try without including the meta data. This way we can already eliminate most of the reasons why this would fail.
If it works correctly without metadata, then we'll have to look at RMTV and/or ffMPEG.
I'm sorry it's been so long, my apologies. I hope all's well with you.
I'm guessing it's number 3 or 4 or both, cause I know I have no permission issues. I'm inclined to lean towards number 5. As for trying it again I I test with the files I already manually fixed or will I need to wait until I run across the issue again?
No need to apologize -- I'm not always quick either 😉
One thing that occurred to me, it's a Windows specific issue I had ran into in the past: When Windows is "working" with a given file, for example creating thumbnails, or maybe scanning the file for viruses, then the file can be seen as locked at the time you'd like to change them.
I've not really seen this with anti-virus, but I have encountered it in the past when Windows was creating thumbnail files. I'm not a big Windows user anymore, but at the time I fixed it by disabling the preview option in the Windows Explorer.
Even if this isn't the case, then this may give you an idea if something in the background may be locking the file?
By preview I mean the thumbnail. As long as the folder is open for the files being dragged to RMTV the thumbnails won't be redrawn, and as far as I know nothing else on the system should be polling those files even in the background. So in a nutshell their should be anything on the system stopping RMTV from doing it's job, hence why I tend to lean towards the issue being illegal characters.
Looks like we were both wrong. I just got the original Lost In Space. The episodes were dual audio Spanish and English, and the episode names were in Spanish. I just removed the Spanish audio in season 1 and dragged the files for renaming to RMTV, searched for Lost In Space, selected TMDB, selected all of season 1, hit rename and all but the 6 were renamed. I decide to try the 6 again and of course it failed, so I tried one more time using the TVDB and the 6 renamed without issue. At this point it looks like something is up with TMDB. I'm assuming it's something on their end since RMTV can only use the information given it.
Unfortunately no I don't recall the specific files. I don't know if you deal with torrents at all, but if you do I'll link the torrents they are in here. As for the 3rd season of the relaunch of Lost In Space it's suppose to be coming out. I'll see what information I can find on it and link it here for you. Side note that site is a private tracker so you might not be able to register so I've included the .torrent files just in case.

That's unfortunate (not remembering which episodes). When this happens again: try to catch the actual episodes, the original filenames, and the name format and replace character settinge in RMTV. This way I can do some testing here and see why it may fail.
Thanks for the "Lost in Space" link - I'm eager to see the new season. I think they said this will be the last season (3), but I secretly hope it will not 😉
I'm not doing anything with Torrents - sorry,... I prefer to avoid the movie industry Gestapo 😊
