[mythtv-users] Disable MythVideo filename parsing

As I understand it, mythtv uses some type of file
parsing/interpretation of the filenames placed in Videos


I would like for MythTV to not do that. I name the files the way I want
them displayed and sometimes - not always - the displayed names are not
the way I named them.  Sometimes it will include the filepath,
sometimes not, drop the text which comes before a dash or underscore,

Is there a way to disable this parsing of the filenames?

I am running:
MythTV Version : v30.0-39-g8e50fcf60b-dirty
MythTV Branch : fixes/30
