i got some free time

i don’t know if anyone is still using this and because i haven’t coded for it in a long time i am just going to merge the dev branch to master in the next days it might all break and what not but i need some point to start from :/

if you thought this project is dead and deserted it, thats okay. personally i still use it exclusively and it does its job pretty good … but of course there are issues that i noticed myself and thats what i’ll be working on. like the different scheduler task die and it just stops searching of checking downloads.

TV, Trakt and PostProcessing

TV plugin is now available in the in the Main Plugin Repo

And so is a Trakt Provider for TV. And a special PostProcessor called Episode Mover that accepts a python format string. Currently only one root/parent Folder for all TV Shows is supported.

I would also advice that you set the Default status of TV to “ignore” otherwise XDM will go haywire and start searching snatching.
