1 Introduction

A Combination NFO file combines a Parsing NFO and Metadata NFO file. It allows you to override some data with that nominated in the NFO file, but scrape the remainder of the data using the Parsing link.

A Parsing NFO file can be used for any of the following classes of media:

Albums Artists Movies Music Videos TV Shows

Note: A Parsing NFO file cannot be used for Seasons or Episodes. Seasons and Episodes are matched via the correct TV Show.


2 Example

Example: Contents of Combination NFO file:

<movie>
    <title>Star Wars (99 second cut)</title>
    <runtime>2</runtime>
    <set>Star Wars Saga</set>
    <sorttitle>Star Wars 01</sorttitle>
    <genre clear="true">SciFi</genre>
    <genre>Romance</genre>
    <genre>Action</genre>
 </movie>

Various tags allow multiple entries, eg multiple <genre> and <director> tags. If you use these tags in a Combination nfo, these tags will have their data added to the scraped entry in the database and, in some cases, may result in duplicate entries. To avoid this, use the clear attribute to clear out the downloaded metadata for those particular tags. See the <genre> tag in the above example.

A listing of which tags allow multiple entries can be found in the appropriate Metadata NFO sub-pages. Does not apply to music.

Notes:

  • If there is more than one URL in the file only the first URL will be used.
