Righto,

Not using mySQL/Mariadb or NFO files either.

Thanks @WillingBrief

I was able to replicate the problem but it has me beat as after 25 minutes, I still cannot figure out where it is going wrong. I think the problem is with the scraper as what TheTVDB is returning is correct. You can see in the below extract from the API return that all the data is there, but the scraper seems to be parsing it incorrectly.

This will require investigating by the developer, so it will be a while off for any fix.

}

In the meantime, you need to sort that episode correctly. The best way to do this is with a NFO file for the episode. If you don't have one, here is the one from my test... https://paste.kodi.tv/ajobufuvac

Copy the contents and paste it into a txt file and rename the file to match your episode file, but use the .nfo extension.

Delete the existing episode 22 out of the library, and scan the new episode into the library.

More details on nfo files can be found in My Signature below


RE: TVDB - TV Show Scraper - WillingBrief - 2019-12-01

@Karellen 

Alrighty, thanks heaps nfo working perfectly.

Also I made placeholders for the rest of the unaired S02 (e09->13) which all seemed to scan correctly, so it seems to be only S02E08 if that helps to narrow it down.

Anyways Cheers.

I tested Lucifer and confirmed there is no year. Checking the API return, TVDB is not providing the First Aired data as shown in the screenshot below. It is a TVDB problem.

Could you check His Dark Materials? Not getting any backgrounds. Just to see if the problem is on my end.

It is a TVDB problem. It is returning no fanart for the show. You would be best reporting it at TVDB forum.

Thank you. I will.

If you would, while you're in there let them know "Lucifer" (TV Show) has no year in it's name. Should be 2016. Thanks! I have no access to the forum even though I am a member of the TVDB.com The series is locked so I can't edit it myself.

Thanks!


RE: TVDB - TV Show Scraper - rschupp - 2019-12-10

FYI: I had problems with two shows "West of Liberty" and "Polizeiruf 110": TVDB Scraper failed  to find any information with logs like
Quote:2019-12-09 18:42:48.405 T:3213   DEBUG: could not parse input XML

Turns out that these shows are missing the "overview" field in the JSON response to https://api.thetvdb.com/search/series?name=...
After changing <GetSearchResultsAuth>, line 102 in tvdb.xml from
Quote: <expression repeat="yes" fixchars="1,4">..."network":\s*?(?:"[^"]*"|null),\s*?"overview":\s*?(?:"[^}]*"|null),\s*?"seriesName"...

to
Quote: <expression repeat="yes" fixchars="1,4">..."network":\s*?(?:"[^"]*"|null)(?:,\s*?"overview":\s*?(?:"[^}]*"|null))?,\s*?"seriesName"...

both work as expected


TVDB Scraper not working - guandms - 2019-12-19

Hi Guys,

I'm really frustrated about the TVDB, I can't get my TV Shows to show as the scraper is not working for me.

I'm using the latest build from the repository and Kodi 18.5 on nVidia Shield Pro, do you know how to resolve this issue?

You should post this question in another thread. TVDB scrapper is not a skin issue.


RE: TVDB - TV Show Scraper - Karellen - 2019-12-19

@guandms

I have moved you to the correct thread. As homerJau states, scraping is not a skin issue.
