Ok, you are talking about the opaque string "episode id" that happens to
contain the numbers you are looking for because its generated from them.
(think of the string as "whatever the station calls that episode")

What you are looking for is the attributed "season/series number" and
"episode number" that come from the metadata grabbers.
(think of it as the "agreed upon true order" of episodes)

see http://www.mythtv.org/wiki/Enhancing_Recordings_with_Metadata_Lookup
it explain how to enable the data collection
