Solved Problem scraping Dynasty 2017 tv show
#1
Hi,

I have the tv show Dynasty (2017) like this :

Dynasty (2017)\Season1\Dynasty (2017) - S01E01 - I Hardly Recognized You.mkv

Inside root folder of the series I put an nfo file like this :

Dynasty (2017)\Dynasty (2017).nfo

Here is the content of my nfo file :

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" standalone="yes"?>
<tvshow>
<id>328749</id>
<uniqueid type="imdb">tt6128300</uniqueid>
<uniqueid type="tvdb" default="true">328749</uniqueid>
</tvshow>
https://www.thetvdb.com/?tab=series&id=328749&lid=7

The file is in UTF8, I've checked with notepad++

The problem is that Kodi thinks it's Sword Dynasty instead of Dynasty (2017).

It completly ignores my nfo file. It's the only show that has a problem indexing.

What am I doing wrong ?

Thank you,

Kind regards,

Adrian.

You have not named the nfo correctly.

Dynasty (2017) - S01E01 - I Hardly Recognized You.mkv - is your video filename
Dynasty (2017) - S01E01 - I Hardly Recognized You.nfo - should be your nfo filename.

Why are you adding ID's to your combination nfo? Kodi will scrape these anyway.

Hi, thank you for your reply.

I have named my nfo that way because that's what Kodi manual says about tvshow nfo file :

f:\MyTVShows\iZombie\tvshow.nfo

What you suggest is an episode nfo file, but I only need kodi to identify the correct show.

I put all the ID's out of desperation, thought it can't hurt Smile

Anyway, I've placed my nfo file as you suggested and it still doesn't work :

\Dynasty (2017)\Season 1\Dynasty (2017) - S01E01 - I Hardly Recognized You.nfo

Thank you.

Hi,

I've solved it. The problem was as you said the naming of my .nfo file. 

Here is the correct naming :

\Dynasty (2017)\tvshow.nfo

And the content of the tvshow.nfo file :

https://www.thetvdb.com/series/dynasty-2017

I hope this helps others with similar problems Smile

I read the manual but I did not understant, now I got it Wink

Thank you,

Adrian.
