20 Nov 2019 - TVDB Scraper v3.2.0 is now available which reinstates scraping. TVDB are still in the process of fixing a number of bugs so there may still be further breakages. See this post. 2901570 (post)

I can never shamelessly promote that link enough

Sure, you may have lost your nfo files along with the hd, but a single file export to a couple of locations is a backup of the backup Smile
I will start doing that. However, I wanted to ask you something. If I use NFO files for TV Shows (episodes), wouldn't I have to create an NFO file for every episode manually that has not aired. I ask this because I am quite sure I had to do it with Tinymedia and it became annoying, especially when you have hundreds of TV show episodes.

Yes you can create NFO file just copy the last good one of the last working  episode edit in notepad change the episode title the Season and Episode number and save it

Nope. It has no effect. Season and Episode tags in the nfo file are ignored on scan/import. They are only exported for the sake of completeness.

Filenames dictate Season and Episode numbering.

Sorry your wrong if you have KODI setup only to scan local information only it works I have been doing it for years. I stopped trusting Kodi scans and been using Ember for many years and also using HDhomerun with Windows 7 with Mcebuddy which creates nfos . For example Svengoolie and America Horror Story never get proper SE and I have to go in and create them. Now your asking why I would do that ? The biggest is movie scans it really a hit of miss if the title has been used before. I can control the correct title and posters etc being kept in each movie folder. And I have everything backed up and used in a second location which has no internet. So starting another KODI else where don't require the internet to scan in my Library

I do my own scraping of episodes from the TVDB as I a manage which files I already have or do not have..


There is functionally nothing wrong with the TVDB API it is an SSL issue from the scraper accessing the TvDB API...
 I had to update my c# code (snippet below) to use .Net 4.5.2 (or plus) and implicitly set the security protocol to TLS12 v3 (code snippet below), SSL3 and TLS v1 & v2 is deemed not secure anymore 


...
apiCredentials _oCredentials = getCredentials();
                JWT.DefaultJsonSerializer s = new DefaultJsonSerializer();
                System.Net.ServicePointManager.SecurityProtocol = System.Net.SecurityProtocolType.Tls12;
                string newRequestUrl = Configuration.EndPointAddress() + "/login";
                HttpWebRequest request = WebRequest.Create(newRequestUrl) as HttpWebRequest;
                request.ContentType = "application/json";
                request.Method = "POST";

Where is this code from?

I don't think anything in Kodi is using SSL still. The above is irrelevant for the scraper here. Note that these current scrapers are just XML declarations and the core engine does all the fetches, etc as common functionality.

Monitor the Plex forum on this. A lot of useful information on the progress as they are working closely with TVDB (they have a business model to protect from failures like this). All the metadata seems to be flowing as it should now but ArtWork is still not being fetched due to issues at TVDB.

It is not clear yet that the TVDB scraper needs to be updated in any way once the dust settles at TVDB for it to function normally. The IT process at TVDB seems amazingly amateurish to me in this day and age but it is what we have.
