I see you are really into this business much more than me. Thank you for your help!

They told me that it is necessary to define the content type (ADV) correctly, if i don't do that properly they would have problems with the company that connects the other ADs to the Feature Film (FTR)...

That is a completely different thing, and catered for in the ISDCF/DCNC name, not in any filename. Also, Doremis sort content according to content type in playlist editor. But filenames are not relevant and can not even be seen there.

e.g.

But the name that the server uses is not read out from the CPL filename, but is stored within the CPL file.

It's a fundamental concept in DCP/DCI that file names and content name are completely separate and disjunct.
