    I am running a headless Linux server and using TVHeadend to do all my recording.

    Whilst I use Kodi's TVH PVR plugin to watch Live TV, I prefer to link my recordings folder to Kodi as a video source.

    The problem with watching this way is that I no longer get the EPG information attached to the file - all I get is the file name.

    Are there any decent scrapers that I might install to keep an eye on my recordings folder and keep it in order and add fanart and details that can then be picked up by Kodi?

    I sync all my watched/resume statuses via MYSql and I don't need to do any transcoding, so I don't need anything full blown like Emby or Plex.

    What do you guys recommend?
