Problems with tvdb scraper
#1
Hi everyone,

I am using LibreElec 9.0.1 with Kodi 18.1 on a rasperry pi. Since a couple of days I am having trouble with the tvdb scraper (3.0.14) as it does not work anymore. In the kodi.log I can find the following messages:

2019-03-26 21:56:23.562 T:1775510384 DEBUG: CurlFile::Open(0x2e554f8) api.thetvdb.com/search/series?name=Siren
2019-03-26 21:56:23.878 T:1775510384 ERROR: CCurlFile::Open failed with code 404 for api.thetvdb.com/search/series?name=Siren:
2019-03-26 21:56:23.878 T:1775510384 ERROR: Run: Unable to parse web site

Usually things like this happen, when there has been released a new version, but according to the official kodi repository, version 3.0.14 is the latest.

Does anyone else have similar problems or a hint what might be the problem?

Greetings,
Uli

As per Kodi 18, the TMDB scraper has replaced TVDB as the default scraper for TV shows, because of "irreconcilable differences" between TVDB and Kodi.
Perhaps it's not the answer you want to hear, but IMO it's best to rescrape your TV episode collection with TMDB as the content setting.

Maybe that's the best solution as the TMDB scraper does work at all. Thank you!

I'm not sure what you are saying here. But the TMDB scraper works fine for me.
