Hey guys,

I've been using XBMC for a while now and have 30+ TV series I've successfully scrapped, but I've just tried to import a new series and for the first time have run into some trouble.

I'm attempting to use TVDB and the series, Invader Zim, goes over two seasons with a total of 46 episodes.

When XBMC goes to scrape it I only end up with 32 episodes (none of which are even from the second season).

Debug log: http://pastebin.com/rtLiPs6L

I note that a large number of episodes come up as:
Code:
DEBUG: VIDEO::CVideoInfoScanner::OnProcessSeriesFolder - no match for show: 'Invader ZIM', season: 2, episode: 7, airdate: '01/01/1601', title: ''

Yet, there clearly is a match on TVDB: http://thetvdb.com/?tab=episode&seriesid...2925&lid=7

I've attempted the import in both DVD Order and Aired Order within the TVDB addon configuration window, both giving identical results.

I really don't care what order it is in, just as long as all the episodes are displayed.

I note that the DVD order on TVDB is in a weird x.y format (eg: DVD Episode # 3.2), I don't know if that's related: http://thetvdb.com/index.php?tab=season&...&order=dvd

Anyone got any thoughts as to what the problem might be?

XBMC has troubles connecting to your mysql database. Once it's working, try to scrape the information again. If it's still not working, enable debug logging in system settings, scrape and pastebin again.

Hey, thanks for the prompt reply.

Yes, sorry, my fault, that was an unrelated problem, I should have cleaned up the log before posting.

I've just redone the scan, this time without any connectivity problems. New debug log: http://pastebin.com/qMYjHAG7

Scanned just fine here. Uncheck both options in the tvdb scraper settings: "use dvd order" and "use absolute ordering".

Please double check if there's a different content (and scraper settings) set on the actual show dir.

ah, yes, that seems to have done the trick -- somehow the show directory had stuffed up scraper settings. I didn't even know you could change it on a per directory basis, so I have no idea how it got out of sync, but never mind.

It's now all working perfectly, thanks very much for your help vdrfan Smile
