Broken is there any workaround/fix for TV show scraping no longer working?
#1
so recently TV show scraping seems to have broken (images fetched ok, but no meta data). From hunting around this seems related to TVDB API version changes - but is there any workaround or fix? Or is the answer "fill in all the details by hand" now?

If TVDb disabled the old API then you have to use TMDb until i release the next version.

TMDB isn't doing so well either. 
I have 6 episodes of "Good Omens" all named as "Good Omens - S01Exx" which when it scrapes the episode it gets only the posters back, not the meta data (it does get the right TMDB id for the show though - 71915). But if I hit the API directly (https://api.themoviedb.org/3/tv/71915/se...pi_key=<my key here>) I get all the metadata. Something's not happy.

A bit of playing with Fiddler shows that it Ember is requesting and receiving season metadata, just it then doesn't populate the episodes with that metadata (credits, plot, etc.)

Any idea when that might be?

Probably safe to wait until TVDB have finished updating their site and API... https://forums.thetvdb.com/viewtopic.php...90#p161690

Pretty please with sugar on top either fix this or bring out a new version. Can't sync TV shows into Kodi now.  Sad

Can't you just watch episodes via files until it's fixed?

With a manual scape, yes of course. Not saying anything "isn't possible", but the POINT of using EMM is that it scrapes and adds to directly to the local Kodi.
