I need a software to manage Tv Series, i.e rename episodes ( using TvRage or other providers ) and flagging episodes as watched in order to know which episodes I have not watched yet.

Do you know something like that?

Another option you can use is GCstar it covers the options you need. Another possibilty is Griffith but it is geared more towards small video store use films/renting.

More Info about gcstar

More Info About griffith

Both are avaliable in the Software Center.

Hope this helps.

I would recommend XBMC using the XBMC standalone package. We've got loads of TV series on our server, with the only right part of the filename being the "season-episode" labels (S01E09) and XBMC picks them up right away. I could go on but that's the only part relevant to the conversation.

You might want to try boxee. It's quite a big program if you only use it for Series though...


  • Mark Episode as viewed (automatically)
  • Show data about Episodes (description, name of episode)
  • Automativally scan for and classify episodes in specified folders (only work for some naming conventions, but it's possible to manually classify them)
  • List episodes you didn't download but that are available online (so you can stream them)

However, it does not rename any files and its a media-center software, not a series manager (so you can view episodes directly in the program).

To rename your files you could use krename [Install krename](' +pkg +'). But krename is for general files, it does not get any info from tvrage or similar.

You may try wxSeasons. This isn't a well-developed app, but it may do something good to you.
