I have set up a new installation and took care to name all file correctly. About 98% of files were recognized correctly, but a few TV show episodes are missing. An example might be the Czech cartoon O kanafáskovi. The show is online: https://thetvdb.com/?tab=seasonall&id=289276&lid=28 .

The folder contains these files

S01E01_jak_se_potkali_(animovany)_04'_DVBT_CZ_(romin).avi
S01E02_jak_byli_zvedavi_(animovany)_04'_DVBT_CZ_(romin).avi
S01E03_jak_hrali_fotbal_(animovany)_04'_DVBT_CZ_(romin).avi

S01E07_jak_prali_k_narozeninam_(animovany)_04'_DVBT_CZ_(romin).avi

S02E05_jak_byli_mrnavi_(animovany)_04'_DVBT_CZ_(romin).avi

S03E07_jak_hledali_tatinka_(animovany)_11'_DVBT_CZ_(romin).avi
S03E08_jak_zachranili_krecka_(animovany)_11'_DVBT_CZ_(romin).avi
S03E09_jak_jezdili_na_koni_(animovany)_11'_DVBT_CZ_(romin).avi
S03E10_jak_jeli_ve_vlaku_(animovany)_11'_DVBT_CZ_(romin).avi
S03E11_jak_byli_v_divadle_(animovany)_11'_DVBT_CZ_(romin).avi
S03E12_jak_shaneli_pejska_(animovany)_11'_DVBT_CZ_(romin).avi
S03E13_jak_se_spolu_loucili_(animovany)_11'_DVBT_CZ_(romin).avi

The episodes numbering in filenames corresponds to th TVDB exactly. After library update only the first season can be seen in the "TV series" listing. In "files" mode however, all episodes are visible.

What might be wrong? Is there a way to debug / log scraper actions?

Check the language settings for thetvdb. If it is set to "english", it won´t find the shows that have no english version.
To change the language for an specific show, go to videos, press "c" and "change content". In the advanced settings you can change the settings for that show without changing the rest of them.

Thak you, however, this does not help - the scraper is set to cs (Czech) globally

What is the name of the folder where all these files reside?

The folder name is "O_kanafaskovi" . This pattern (no national chars and underscores instead of spaces works perfectly for other shows)

I could not replicate your problem.

I set my scraper as follows...

1. Changed Kodi language to Czech
2. Changed scraper to TVDB
3. Changed scraper language to cs
4. Copied and pasted all your episode titles exactly
5. TV Show directory name... O_kanafaskovi
4. Performed an update library
5. All episodes were scraped into the library, except S02E02, but that is because it was not in your list

What happens if you navigate Videos>Files>your source>O_kanafaskovi and manually refresh each unscraped episode?
