Is it a problem using the new scraper... https://github.com/thetvdb/metadata.tvshows.thetvdb.com.v4.python/releases

I was able to scrape Elves correctly with both the TVDB (new) and the new "metadata.tvshows.thetvdb.com.v4.python" Version 1.0.16.

**** MODERATOR NOTICE ****:

This scraper is DEPRECATED and has been removed from the Official Kodi Repository
Please update to the newest TVDB v4 scraper.
See... https://forum.kodi.tv/showthread.php?tid=368272

This deprecated scraper uses TheTVDB API v2, which is due to be closed down later in the year.
There are currently issues with the scraper where first episodes and first seasons may not scrape in certain situations, as well as some artwork not scraping.

Due to the short life remaining, it was decided to mark this scraper EOL now, and remove the support burden from volunteer developer @olympia.

This scraper has worked well for over a decade, and we thank @scudlee for creating the scraper and @olympia for maintaining it.

The new TheTVDB v4 scraper is written in Python and uses the latest API v4. It is created by TheTVDB Team

Any existing source that uses this deprecated scraper needs to be changed to use the new TheTVDB v4 scraper.
Your existing library remains unaffected, and there is no need to rescrape your library after changing to the new scraper.
Please refer to this page if you are unsure how to change scrapers.... https://kodi.wiki/view/Changing_Scrapers

Thank you for clarifying this. I was hesitant to change, but it looks like it should be quite painless.
