If it's movies you are getting metadata for then yes, that is 
correct,but in your original post you said they were X-file 
episodes..That naming scheme won't work... If you want metadata for 
x-files then you need to name them following the correct scheme for 
example X-file S01E01.mpg etc...
I don't believe there is a way to disable metadata download,unless you 
remove the scripts or make them non executable...
