Same here.

FYI...

The current problems with the TVDB scraper are due to problems at the TVDB site. There is nothing Kodi can do to resolve the current issues.

Here are some ongoing threads from the TVDB forum regarding the issue.

Actually... Medusa is working fine -- even with the thetvdb api timing out. Why? It has a fallback.

Would it be possible for the Kodi thetvdb scrapper to also have an (automatic?) fallback? The config of Medusa looks like this:

@annomatik

We don't have a TVDB mirror, so a fallback is currently not possible for us.

We do offer two other tv show scrapers - TheMovieDB and TV Maze, so they can be seen as our type of fallback.

And these two are not related to thetvdb -- completely independent databases, right?

Yes, two independent databases.

The beauty of community supported databases... if it's not there, then just add it. Smile That is what someone has obviously already done at TVDB.

But looking at the TVDB entry for that show, it is pretty bare. Minimal information, no artwork for the show and the 6 episodes I checked.


RE: TVDB - TV Show scraper - shedrock - 2020-03-15

According to a recent post on FB, I think the TVDB issue has been resolved. I am just updating my TV Show Next Aired and it seems to be working, but extremely slow.

Yes, I know. I've picked that example because I've already entered the data for that show into thetvdb.com (I could give a couple of more examples, some with a lot of seasons). Using other dbs for me would probably mean entering that data all over again.

Oh well. Good thing, Kodi is storing the meta data in a db once it has downloaded it and not trying to download it every time :-)


RE: TVDB - TV Show scraper - docwra - 2020-03-16

Just for info I started looking at building a new TV metadata and artwork site, ideas welcome!

Is anyone else besides myself having issues with TheTVDB again? I can't scan in new episodes of Hawaii five 0 and Blue Bloods.

Doesn't work here either. Tried multiple shows...

I hate this, I mean REALLY hate this, but removing an entire series from the database (without removing the files), then updating the library has been working for me when normal updates scraping TVDB won't find new content.


RE: TVDB - TV Show scraper - Nekromantik - 2020-04-04

is it down again?


RE: TVDB - TV Show scraper - jeffski10 - 2020-04-04

Yes, seems the API is timing out.  I've taken to using TinyMM and then scrape with trakt/TMDB to get an nfo and use that to import with.


RE: TVDB - TV Show scraper - aoakley - 2020-04-04

Same here (UK), The TVDB addon version 3.2.4 in Kodi is not scraping shows, getting error "Unable to connect to remote server" after trying to scan with new correctly-named shows.

This thread on the TVDB forums agrees (today Sat 4 April 2020):
