Using Windows 7, so can't use a Mac Program. )Would love a Mac emulator so I could have a dual boot setup :) )

I know that Meta X works great for movies and can be used for TV series, just not as well as some other Mac based programs I have read about. Does anyone know of a good Windows program that would allow me to do the same thing, just geared toward TV series?

Here is my setup.
Bedroom - Roku (orginal) running Plex
Living Room - Apple TV 2 and a Roku 2
Den - Roku XDS (running Plex)

I 'm trying to get everything that I can see on the Roku (local content), on the ATV2 and have the metadata the same.

Plex does a great job of scanning my folders for the TV shows and attaching series and episodes metadata. However, that same info can't transfer to the ATV since the metadata in Plex is wriiten to a file, not the MP4 file.
I know I can do this all my hand within iTunes, and I'll do what I can with MetaX if I can't find anything else, the fill in the blanks by hand.

Sorry, but not trying to be rude or anything, but wouldn't you have better luck on a PC based forum instead of a Mac based one?

Well given that I came here because I bought a Apple TV 2 a couple of weeks ago AND someone on here suggested MetaX because I had a Windows setup, I figured this was a good place to ask again.

I never had any real luck using W7 software to get the tagging process done...I remember there was a program similar to MetaX called MetaZ I *think*.

However, I figured a way to run Snow Leopard in a VM on Windows so I could use iFlicks. It is, by far, the best tagging software I have tried.

I use MetaX for TV shows on the PC.
Why doesn't it work for you?

I will work to a certain degree. I have found that it does not get all the needed info about episodes. I'm at work and not able to see exactly which fields I've had trouble getting info for. I am correct in that you can not added user agents such as tvdb to scrape info, correct?

I'm was just looking for something that would keep me from having to add more info once moved to iTunes so it will show all needed info on the ATV2.

I see. I think my requirements are simply less.

Try Identify2

I used metax for quite a while,but Identify 2 far surpasses it. It does great for both movies and tv shows... One trick with tv shows with it is that you need to ID the season and episode numbers and it will pull all the info in...

iDentify2 is only for OS X and as the OP states, he's using Windows 7.

The OP needs to get Mac OS then. Simple. :D

I'll be more than happy to send you my address so that you can send the check that will make up the difference between the PC and Mac. I would love to have a Mac, but the $$$$ make that impossible. :D
