    Yeah, use Lostify. By the way, does anyone know if Lostify supports queues, like MetaX does? It's a pain to have to tag each file one at a time.

    Unfortunately it doesn't. It's frustrating, but once you get a system going and have a fast drive with a big cache, it's not too bad.\

    I think he may be adding a queue in a coming version

    Surely MetaX is MetaX for tv shows? :confused:

    I find MetaX far to cumbersome for TV show tagging.

    I use MetaX for TV shows but I haven't tried anything else. The trick is to make presets.

    I'm working on every season of Voyager right now so I made a preset that has the cover art, title, genre, kind, etc. preloaded. After I apply the preset, I apply the season number and then I just go and type in the title, episode number, and description of each show. Takes about 10-15 minutes to type it in for each season. It's not a big deal.

    You type the description of each show. I assume there isn't a service that finds the description of the show based on the episode name/number?

    Lostify is a purely manual process, though, isn't it? It doesn't search databases like MetaX.

    I haven't found one yet. You can just copy and paste from an episode guide though. I find it faster to type because I'm a fast typist.
