Many of you may remember that I wrote a script for BeyondTV (BeyondTV Renamer) that utilized a command line tool that someone had written to create an XML file giving detailed information about the given file. My script compared the airdate from this dumped XML file with airdates of matching shows on TVRage.com to rename the files in such a way that XBMC or Boxee could read the file and get the metadata (like show description and images).
Well today I’m releasing a script that I wrote that does something similar for SageTV. Technically speaking, it does not actually rename the file. It creates symlinks to the files named in such a way that XBMC or Boxee can read the files and pickup the metadata. And instead of needing the command line tool, you need the SageTV Web Interface that was written by Neilm. By creating symlinks, it allows for only 1 true copy of the file to exist and for the show to remain in SageTV and in Boxee or XBMC.
