Hi there,

I've got a bunch of TV Shows that I have specials for that are listed on TVDB with great info that I'd like to scrape. The only problem is I've tried a bunch of different naming conventions and can't figure out how to get the Media Companion to find them. The same also goes for "Pilots" listed on TVDB. For example, I've tried:

Survivorman.S02.Special - Off the Grid
Surviorman.Special 2 - Off the Grid


Anyone know the answer to this?

Nevermind, I figured it out.

My answer was on the XBMC Wiki:

For a TVDB scraper to find specials, all you have to do is label them as Season 0, eg.:

Survivorman.S00E01 - Behind the Scenes (Special)
