I finally started using your program after trying it manually but I found something would be helpful.

In dealing with a TV show like DETROIT 1-8-7, which has episode titles with DUAL names separated by a "/" - the program has no way of dealing with this situation. TVDB episode titles are stripped of this "/" and I end up with a long, run on title name.

ie.: [TVDB title - Episode #5] Murder in Greektown/High School Confidential

[The Renamer] Murder in Greektown High School Confidential

I am not certain HOW to fix this. I have tried changing the separators,individually - but with no success.

Perhaps In your Title Separators, you can include a user defined "Character Substitution" field, to modify this "/" and other strange characters found on episode titles (from the TVDB database) to anything the user wishes - perhaps even taking priority ahead of the separators?

There's reserved characters in Windows which are not allowed in folder and file names.
These are \ / : * ? " < > |

When theRenamer finds these characters, it will replace them will with something I've set.

The ONLY character you can customize is the Colon :
which people seem to find more picky.... so I've put it under Global Settings.

Separators are not for this cases. It's for how you wish would be; Before the Season, and after the Episode.
The green preview text shows how it looks in the end.

Any strange characters you come across besides the reserved letters from Windows? I might have missed a few.
