I use filebot to rename show. but it seems to only work when shows are in already organized by air date starting with episode 1. my question is what if the files are mislabeled and the episode orders are all off? see pic for example:

here are my mislabeled files where episode numbers are all wrong

here is what they should be like according to tvdb

    Also, double check what the TVDB shows for DVD order. You may score there if the numbers align. You can import into Plex and then change the advanced settings to show DVD order which will right side the matches... if you're lucky.

    You can always drag and reorder your episode files.

    I hate when this happens. Man, if I wasn't so damn lazy....

    After dragging to reorder the files correctly some episodes were highlighted red on right side of filebot, which indicates i;m guessing a mismatch. I don't know if it means anything but I was able to rename regardless. thanks
