Windows 7: Dynamically rename files to match a similar file?

Dynamically rename files to match a similar file?

currently I have a collection of videos with .srt subtitle files, like so:

Futurama.S01E01.avi
Futurama.S01E01.srt
Futurama.S01E02.avi
Futurama.S01E02.srt
Futurama.S01E03.avi
Futurama.S01E03.srt


I use a program to organize them and give them descriptive titles, but it will not rename the .srt files even though it is supposed to. So I get:

Futurama 1x01 The Beginning.avi
Futurama.S01E01.srt
Futurama 1x02 The Next.avi
Futurama.S01E02.srt
Futurama 1x03 The After.avi
Futurama.S01E03.srt

i can use Renamer to format the SRT files so they use the same numbering scheme, but it can't add the title:

Futurama 1x01 The Beginning.avi
Futurama 1x01.srt
Futurama 1x02 The Next.avi
Futurama 1x02.srt
Futurama 1x03 The After.avi
Futurama 1x03.srt

Is there a program or script that will scan and recognize files with similar names (eg: Futurama 1x01 The Beginning.avi and Futurama 1x01.srt are identical for the first 12 characters), then rename one file to match the other (except for extension)?

thanks.
