May I ask what you’re doing on v15 in this day and age?

No. You will need to update to at least v17 if you want to continue to use TheTVDB scraper.

Is there any reason you are still on Isengard? Do you need help updating?

i use the dsplayer version/branch of kodi, to use graphical enhancements to videos (madvr, svp, ffdshow etc). I also tend to modify the coding of skins heavily for my own preferences. last time it took a few months to get everything the way that i like it. im not looking forward to starting mostly from scratch. having a version of kodi usable for a few months while i build an updated version of kodi on the same setup is also a cumbersome part for me. youtube not being at 120fps looks distracting to me. ive been wanting to add netflix and amazon prime tv though, so that's an upside im trying to motivate myself with.

Thanks @Karellen and the rest of the team (btw, Kodi DSPlayer is on 17.6, so I don't see why @Oceanic asked that question but glad to see extended support for old versions, a class act).

You handled this in a really professional way, with constant updates and all the info needed to handle the "crisis". It's been much appreciated.
For troubleshooting and bug reporting please make sure you read this first.
