Variable N, M or T count independently of the selected titles. I like to have a counting starting at 0+X and considering the selected titles.
The reason is that tv shows with unwanted titles raise the title count so it results in this example s01e05 but should be s01e02:
In addition the starting number should be changable as with the second DVD it should start at 05 and end with 08 (next four episodes):
My proposal is the following syntax for the first DVD:
and this for the second DVD:
And "S" should only increment on selected titles.

FWIW, this is my current workaround:
In MakeMKV, I rename the entire disk "Series Title - s##d#" where ## and # are season and disk number. In the Advanced tab->Output file name template, I change "t_" to "r", so my files end up looking like "Series Title - s20d2r09.mkv"
Importantly, that is not an episode number, but a "rip" number. Although there are often gaps, generally episodes still seem to be in the proper order. I rip all the disks of a series this way, so I end up with:
"Series Title - s01d1r00.mkv"
"Series Title - s01d1r03.mkv"
"Series Title - s01d2r00.mkv"
"Series Title - s09d3r13.mkv"
Then, using a quick-and-dirty python script, I sort and rename the files based on their season, disk, and rip number. The rip number gets replaced with a number from an incremental counter which resets between seasons, but not between disks:
"Series Title - s01e01.mkv"
"Series Title - s01e02.mkv"
"Series Title - s01e03.mkv"
"Series Title - s09e10.mkv"
The script then moves all the files to the property directory for Plex to pick up.
