Downloaded TV shows sorter

#1
This is information for those comfortable with linux and telneting into the humax box.

I've recently found an interesting script called tvnamer https://github.com/dbr/tvnamer

It's a good little script for tidying up your tv show downloads into readable and sorted into folders.

To install; telnet into the box and run "easy_install tvnamer"

I created a cron entry that looks like this:
*/15 * * * * /mod/bin/tvnamer -c /mod/.tvnamer/config.json /media/My\ Video/complete_unsorted

Where complete_unsorted is the folder tranmission moves completed downloads to.

My config file is asuch:http://uploadbin.net/c144aa9a318611e2baaad1d1a5c7f576/config.json (which is stored in /mod/.tvnamer/config.json as referenced in the cronjob)
based upon this tutorial http://1000umbrellas.com/2010/10/10/using-tvnamer-to-move-completed-tv-torrent-downloads

I've been using this for a month or so now. I've afraid I don't know how to package it up as a module and these instructions are not very user friendly but I really wanted to let people know about this amazing little script!

All the best

There are some notes on how to create a package (and unpack an existing one) on the WiKi HERE.

Is easy_install a package that is currently available on the Humax?

I take it this is to do with torrents, since Transmission and downloads are mentioned? Does it have anything to do with recordings at all?? If not perhaps this should be highlighted in the topic title.

Agreed, Sorry Black Hole. if a mod could change the title to "Downloaded tv shows sorter" I'd appreciate it.
