v18 Date Added in the NFO file ignored during importing - Error with movies before 1970
#1
Hi!
I have Kodi 18.1 x64 on a Windows 10 PC and i want to import correctly my library of Movies created with TinyMediaManager (https://forum.kodi.tv/forumdisplay.php?fid=204).

I have the problem that the tag dateadded inside the NFO file is ignored during the import process. The problem is related to the date before the 1970. I show you an example.

Movie: West and Soda (https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0144681/)

My file have this date:

The NFO file is this owujupigec (paste) as you can see the dateadded tag is this:

<dateadded>1965-10-01</dateadded>

but after the importing the result in the database is this (there are two entry because i repeat the importing)

As you can see the dateAdded field is wrong.
I don't think the syntax of the dateadded tag is wrong (there is no hour and minute field), because other movie (with date after the 1970) works perfectly.

I'm afraid that is a bug from the Windows OS...

I don't seem to have a problem manually editing the .nfo for date (and scraping of the date) with Kodi, your issue may be best directed with their forum (created with TinyMediaManager). I do note Kodi 18.4 is available, while you are using v18.1

With your permission, I would like to re-locate the thread to https://forum.kodi.tv/forumdisplay.php?fid=204

The syntax of the dateadded tag is wrong.

The correct syntax is date and time.
<dateadded>1969-03-23 21:17:30</dateadded>

But you have
<dateadded>1965-10-01</dateadded>

The issue is a problem with TMM for providing incorrect values. It is not a Kodi bug. Problem needs to be directed to them.

I will move your thread there.

Meanwhile I install Ubuntu on the same pc, and I import the library (same USB hdd, same file, same NFO file) and he result is correct. So at least in Unix system the dateadded tag is syntactically correct.

I must try with Windows...

Thank you all guys

EDIT: I retry in Windows and the tips from Karellen is correct... with the time inside the dateadded tag the import process is correct!!!
