Trying to scrape from TVDB yields strange results or errors if the television show in question has a number in its title. Some examples of what I've encountered.
(My Folder structure always follows this pattern O:\TV\Show Name\1\101 - episode name.avi)

30 Rock:
A few episodes are scraped but all are listed in season 2 with mismatched titles. A successful workaround has been to rename the folder to O:\TV\Thirty Rock

Sealab 2021:
Scraping returns no results. Log reveals that every episode is 20x21 and reports not found on TVDB or TVDB is down.

Doctor Who (2005)
Same as above with every episode listed as 20x05 and not found.
Obvious workaround in both cases is to remove the numbers from the titles.
O:\TV\Sealab
O:\TV\Doctor Who

Apologies if this has already been discussed and hope these workarounds might help others who are having the same difficulties.

The issue you have is that the default regex works left to right & over the whole path. When it find the first match it will return that so if the numbers fall into a format used by the season & episode recognition, they will be returned first.

I see you are using the 101 format for Season/Episode. If you where to use S01E01 format or 1x01 format this would avoid your issue since both of these formats are check before the 101 type.

Alternatively, you can change the regex to work right to left......

Have a look at this post I put up a little while ago.

It details the regex changes required to get this outcome.

Cheers

Thanks! I plugged in some xs and it worked great!
