Full Version: IMDB TV 2 TV series with the same name
You're currently viewing a stripped down version of our content. View the full version with proper formatting.
If you have a TV series which exists with the same name but different productions (example The Office or Mad Dogs), what's the simplest way to get the IMDB scraper to pick up the right version?

I have tried naming the files with the original air date rather than S01E01, but that doesn't work.

Do you have to resort to nfo files or is there a trick to tell the scraper which IMDB item to use?

There is no IMDB scraper for tv shows. You check either TheMovieDB or TVDB, depending on which scraper you have active.

To answer your question, you add the year to the name, so how it is listed at the scraper site, is how you name your tv show folder. eg The Office (2019)
