Tab in Expisode Name from TheTVDB.com

Some of the Episode names from TheTVDB have tabs in them. It just so happen to also be in a show that had an ' in the name, which was mis-leading to debug. This is easy to over-come by adding the following to the config:

<change_char from=" " to="" />

which will remove tabs from the mapped filenames. Issue I was running into is the renamed filename would have a tab in it, which isn't valid. Took me a while to figure out how to put a tab in the config file, and I thought I would save anyone else the time.

Might be nice to have the code remove tabs and trim the Name and Episode name for the renamed files, which are two very common files for the human input from theTVDb reports.

Can you please share examples of the programme/episodes? I want to make the script more robust when it comes to handling the details retrieved from TheTVDB but I'm struggling to find bad examples :-).

Thanks.
