P.S. I hope this isn’t asking too much. I’m sure this is possible, and hopefully won’t need to be a big change. I use Sage TV and it reads .my files. The . my files looks like this:
The .my file has to have the same name as the .avi file in order to be read. I use your program to rename the files anyway, so it could use the same parameter.
Contents of .my file
Overview=Federal Agent Jack Bauer can’t afford to always play by the rules. As a member of the L.A. Counter Terrorist Unit, Jack must stop bombs, viruses, assassination attempts, and usually save someone he cares about all in a day’s time. Every season of this series has 24 episodes, each unfolding in real time following a consecutive hour in one very bad day.

TVOverview=Since Jack Bauer has been pulled from his senate sub-committee hearing to assist with the deadly domestic threat and the investigation of former colleague Tony Almeida, his new undefined role is to help secure the nation.

Chloe O’Brian and Bill Buchanan are on hand this season as well as FBI Agents Renee Walker, Larry Moss, Janis Gold and Sean Hillinger to cope with the unthinkable events
TVDuration=45 minutes

It doesn’t have to have all that information, but as much as possible would be great. I guess I could use Sam Saffron’s scraper, but I would just be re-doing what you have done (but not as well and it would take me a long time to do what you have already done) just to create a new output file.

I have attached my rudimentary Ruby Script (It's my first one) that may help in the conversion.

I should have wrote back sooner on this. The .my file option has been working great!. SageTV(using SAGEMC stv) reads the .my file for show information with no problems.
