Thanks. So that seems to be the problem, having looked in more detail at the logs, the 'offending' episodes aren't matching any metadata lookups, or are matching multiple titles and therefore being ignored. It appears as if the new inbuilt metadata lookup is not as clever as Jamu used to be, unless I'm missing something?
