Full Version: Problem adding TV show to library / scraping
You're currently viewing a stripped down version of our content. View the full version with proper formatting.

I'm quite new to XBMC and I have a problem I haven't been able to solve. I have one swedish TV show, Tårtan, that exists in thetvdb (http://www.thetvdb.com/?tab=series&id=83341&lid=8) but XBMC does not seem to find it and the show is not added to the library. I've tried all I canfigure out to do (also renaming the show folder to Tartan instead of Tårtan) but it will not be added to the library.

In the (closed) thread on scraper problems I have seen similar problems have been solved by selectingto add manually and edit thename used to search, but I have not been able to find out how this is to be done.

Would anyone be able to help me solve thisproblem by either setting the scraper to find the available show info, or how to add it manually?

you need to add it using the language listed with the media.
I have tried changing the language to swedish in the settings for the TVdb add-on, if this is what you mean, but it doesn't help.
If you enable debug logging and update the library the debug log will show you the query being sent to the scraper. You can experiment with copying and pasting the URL into your web browser to see what is being retrieved. Look for entries like:

DEBUG: FileCurl::Open(05B7F16C) http://api.themoviedb.org/2.1/Movie.search/en/xml/57983e31fb435df4df77afb854740ea9/1995%20toy%20story

This is an example from a test scan I've just done. Copying and pasting:


into Internet Explorer does the search and shows me what the server returns. If nothing is found you can experiment with altering the URL until it works and that indicates how yo name the video.

Thanks. The problem seems to be that language=en in the query:


But I think I have set it to Swedish. The way I did this was the following, starting from the XBMCmain menu:

System - Add-ons - Enabled Add-ons - TV information - The TVDB - Configure - Language (set to "sv")

But still the query includes the "language=en"

Also the "ta%cc%8artan" in the query (as displayed in the log-file) shows up like "tårtan" in the address field of the browser but that doesn't give me a response from TVDB. Typing the letter "å" from the keyboard instead does give me a proper response (if I also change language="en" to "sv"). But also "tartan" gives me a proper respons and I can equally well have my folder named "tartan".

So the problem seems to be that the query includes language=en even though I have set language to "sv" as described above. Or should this be done in a different way?
No ideas why the query to TVDB includes language=en although language has been set to "sv" in the configuration of the TVDB add-on?
