Hi Hans,

For context I will paste this from the RMTVS comments page (2021.03.07@10:13):

QUOTE

Shows that are “known” (the ones you’ve loaded and used before, and are listed in the Hard Linked Shows table in Settings under Generic and AutoDetect) will be tried first.
This should, theoretically reduce the amount of conflicts … I hope.

To add shows as a Hard Linked show, you’ll have the option to have this done during auto detect (may not be the best option).
Alternatively, add a file that can cause issues, then link it up with the right show, and right click the file under “Selected Files”. You can then choose to add this show to the hard linked shows. So next time a file of the same show will look for this one. 

END QUOTE

Sometime, or in my case, most of the time, new concepts don't register 1st time around, I need double take, or let it sink in.

When you say may "not be the best option", you are probably referring to adding a yet unknown show filename and praying rmtvs gets it right. 

If so, I agree this is kind of a leap of faith. What I was doing to improve the odds was manually searching the show/selecting the desired one from results(1st column) and looking at Episodes (2nd column) while adding file (4th column) . This way I had a visual to compare to.

Once a show has been correctly hard linked at least once, I do not need to do extra steps and I can go straight to add files.

 

Would it be a good feature if rmtvs would give us some visual cue/feedback if the related show is already in hard link list when just adding a file in 4th section Selected files.

I'm thinking color coded (ie: red=not hard linked yet, proceed with care. blue=already hard linked, Go ahead)

 

Hopefully my question/suggestion makes sense

 

MfU

That is a good idea! I'll have to add this to my todo list. 👍 

I'll have to try to find motivation to implement this. I just finished doing my taxes and am recovering from that 🤣 

Also note: a show can be hard linked multiple times. The idea being that the detected title of a show could appear in more than one way (for example in English and in French - both being the same show).

I am happy to learn the feature is not already there and just too much of a noob to see it.

 

Yeah, taxes 😫 , I usually get a nice return, but I,m not crazy about the process itself.

I usually wait until last possible moment to do it and to add to the pleasure, here we have to perform it on 2 levels (country and provincial)

🤣

Well, I still need to work on proper documentation haha ...

Thank goodness, taxes this year has been OK for me, I didn't have much income in 2020 (thanks Pandemic!).
I have to do my taxes state en federal as well (US) and I have to verify if I have to pay taxes in The Netherlands as well 😞

I don't remember how many years passed since I first started to use Rename, but I discovered a mere 6 days ago you could right-click on added file (4th column).

And no, not because its not documented.The instructions you already post at the top of the Rename page are an example to follow.

This is 100% on me. I've relied  on your fine app for quite some time now, but it doesn't make me a power user.

Well, I find that at times the user of RMTV know more about it than I do hahaha.
Like I said: I do not use it very often. It was just a fun little project when I started it. Just to test my skills (programming, and doing this cross platform as well).

And it is always nice to have user to interact with and keep me on my toes 😉
