Unable to connect to remote server at boot, but will scrape fine if option is choosen - simonmoon - 2021-06-21

I have a Kodi 18.9 box set up for aged parents, and it's set to update libraries at boot. But a cannot connect to remote server message appears, although if yes is selected, the library will properly scrape immediately. I can't figure out how to stop this will remote server connection problem at boot. I think the relevant lines in the attached log are:

ERROR: CCurlFile::FillBuffer - Failed: HTTP returned error 422 2021-06-20 16:54:44.294 T:2881561456 ERROR: CCurlFile::Open failed with code 422 for https://api.themoviedb.org/3/search/tv?api_key=6a5be4999abf74eba1f9a8311294c267&query=&language=en&append_to_response=credits,external_ids,images&include_image_language=en,en,null:

All I can see in your log is the following...
 ERROR: Run: Unable to parse web site
WARNING: VideoInfoScanner: Error 0 occurred while retrievinginformation for archive://smb%3a%2f%2fDS%2fmedia%2fTV%2fxbmcswift2-xbmc-dist-2.4.1.zip/.
VideoInfoScanner: Finished scan. Scanning for video info took 00:08

I guess that you have your Sources set up incorrectly? Otherwise why would it be trying to scrape what looks like a distribution file.
There is no other scraping activity in your log, so that is as far as I can go.

Thanks, this was helpful, problem solved. I had the file xbmcswift2-xbmc-dist-2.4.1.zip in my TV directory by mistake. It was causing the issue. Once deleted problem solved.

Oh great!! I was a bit worried this might be one of those complex issues that takes quite a few posts and logs to resolve.

Enjoy!
