    OK after much hair pulling and having had issues with the way HT2 scans I think I may have cracked it, first you will need to use:-
    rename-your-tv-series-files then once installed on a windows pc - open it - then click on File - then Preferences and make sure it is setup like this %N S%S1E%E1 - %T - this denotes the way TV episodes are seen at the file level eg - Babylon 5 S04E05 - name of episode. The rest is just GUI logic - simple once you figure it out. So once you have your episodes arranged just so, add the source with these rightly named files into HT2 and then use this neat trick, use Re match on the Others folder -
    then type the name of the series into Poster Search - then the name of the series should appear under the search bar - click OK on it and then find the series on the left hand list - click OK again on the series name then a list of all the episodes should appear under video match - then DON'T click OK again, find Match Rule and change it to Episodes then click on OK and it should sort it out the right way.

    If you play around with this and remove some sources or your library is already clean with no others then it turns your Others into sort of a dedicated season or single show kind of folder that can then be scanned correctly using the above method - works for me. X9S V2.1.30 Firmware + HT2 2.51.

    Hope this helps out some end users :) also switching to Title also worked most of the time - but Accurate in that menu list seems to give HT2 a headache on some shows. Also noticed that some shows will scan some episodes right and get the rest wrong etc, use the the batch edit tool to just clear match info for ALL then use the above method, just tried it with another series that was acting up, this method fixed it. I have been using my x9s for a long time, but this is the first time I really had the time to play around with it, now I know this, my life just got a lot easier :)

    Oh and one last tip for movies that get mistaken usually for some strange foreign movie etc, try just using the name of the movie - then the year of the movie in brackets straight after it.

    i rarely have problem with tv show to scrap the right scan result
    but almost every my tv shows have incomplete scan result, for example, from 10episodes sometimes only few episodes got the complete result and others with no fanart or no cast or no plot or alls :(
    when i download that tv show in my PC, before i transfer it to my hdd in X9S, i always do manually renaming all that filename, tv show title SxxExx - episode title
