Also some shows which exist in both will pick up data from IMDB but not TVDB. As a matter of principle I spent half an hour to force Ember to pick up data from BOTH, for example for TV show "American Monster", but no matter what I do, Ember picks up only IMDB but nothing from TVDB, When you right click on the show name on the left pane you get the option to open page on IMDB but not TVDB (shaded) aldough TV Show is listed there.

All that will be fixed with new modules handling that comes with one of our next Alphas.

Atm the moment the problem is:
If the first scraper can't find the tv show or movie, the whole scraping process will be cancelled. The problem with the show "American Monster" is that IMDB provides (always) only the IMDB ID. The search function in next scraper will be disabled if the first scraper provides a scraper result. TVDB needs a TVDB or IMDB ID to get the data, but the IMDB ID is not set on TVDB website for "American Monster". So the TVDB scraper does not a search and can't provide a result.

With new modules handling we try to get all ID's before the scraping starts. For this we use the TMDB API and TVDB as fallback. TMDB can search other ID's be any of this three ID's. TVDB can search TVDB ID by IMDB ID or IMDB ID by TVDB ID.

As workaround you can add the ID's manually after first scrape (<id> is the TVDB ID):

Then you can reload the tv show with F5 to read the manually added ID's. Now all ID's a known and you can do a rescrape.
