Help with renaming episodes on Sonarr


Sonarr version (exact version):
Mono version (if Sonarr is not running on Windows):
OS: Windows
Debug logs:
Description of issue: Media Management Renaming

Apologies if this is a silly question, but I have only recently started using Sonarr and I’m having a bit of trouble with getting it to rename newly downloaded episodes to how I’d like. I usually label my media:

[1x01] Episode Title

However, I can only seem to get Sonarr to rename the episode without the brackets:

1x01 Episode Title

I’ve tried simply adding brackets but I’m met with errors, is there anyway around this?

Thank you!


Could be a couple reasons why this isn’t working, the first being square brackets at the beginning/end tend to be reserved for anime releases and can cause Sonarr to parse things incorrectly. The second would be Sonarr can’t properly determine how it’s use that format in a multi-episode rename, changing the multi-episode style, might help, but it might not.
