I have my files named "TITLE - SXXEXX.mp4" for TVDB scraping. 


In iTunes, the episode title populates automatically in the "Episode ID" tag.  The file name ("TITLE - SXXEXX") is in the "Name" field, and that's how it is displayed on the Apple TV 3 Home Sharing list.  


I want it to display the episode title, or "Episode ID" field, instead.  Ideas?  


As far as I can tell, the only way to do this is to copy manually the Episode ID into the Name field.  Does anyone know of a software solution for that?  Does iDentify swap tags en masse?


I'm hoping this..."just works."
