Sometimes, some popular dramas will produce sequels, but the actors are different. For example:

 

https://www.themoviedb.org/tv/37722

https://www.themoviedb.org/tv/64197-nirvana-in-fire

 

However, due to tmdb rules, the above episodes have been merged into multi season episodes.

But that leads to a problem. For example, the TV series "TVV" is divided into two seasons:

Actor ”A“ appeared in the first season of the TV series, and actor ”B“ appeared in the second season of the TV series.

 

However, on the "TVV" home page of emby TV series, only actor ”B“ is displayed, actor ”A“ is not displayed on the home page. 

Although there is information about actor "A" in the metadata of each episode in the first season, there is no statistics that actor "A" has acted in "TVV" episodes in the program list of the actor interface.

 

Emby homepage actors (actors of season 2: 15)

Tmdb full cast (26)

It's because in the second season of scraping, the actor information was directly covered by tvshow Caused by NFO?

I hope that developers can solve this problem in subsequent versions!

 

PS:Considering the problems of TMDb in recent days, I am not sure whether it is the problem of Emby or the problem of TMDb API.

Hi, please try refreshing the metadata on this series and see if that helps pull in new info from Tmdb.

Sorry but this is how TMDB works as the shows have Regular Cast so full cast does not apply.

I guess maybe emby queries actors by season, so when it is updated to the second season, the actors in the second season will directly replace the actors in the original first season.

 

In view of this situation, can we add the actor information of season 1 and season 2 to "tvshow.nfo"?

 

Because if there is no information about the actors of the first season in "tvshow.nfo"", there will be no information about acting in this series in the actor interface!

Tmdb is complete, but emby will not have statistics!!!

 

Maybe emby can change the actor information of the show through the full cast definition?

 

Or does tmdb have no API interface for a complete cast?

Emby is missing ”Nirvana in Fire

Although this is a special case, I'm not sure if using the full cast to query whether the actors will have an impact on other episodes.
