How to remove and prevent missing episodes/seasons from being created

My Emby server seems to randomly add seasons and episodes of TV Shows that do not exist in my library.  Unfortunately, I can't figure out how to remove them.

As an example, I have The Orville seasons 1-2 on my server.  Emby added a Season 3 and populated it with episode 10 and marked it as missing.  I believe at some point, it listed all of them (this was months before season 3 even aired).

I've noticed this with other series/seasons as well.  Stranger Things season 4 wasn't downloaded, but it showed episodes 4-9 as just showed them as missing.  At some point, those simply disappeared.

Rescanning files doesn't seem to make a different on that.

Any ideas on what to look at, check, or test?

Thanks for the help!

I'm sorry, I should have mentioned that this option is already unchecked (it was the first thing I looked into).

Also, I would expect (and hope) that if the option were selected that the results would be more uniform, e.g. all of the missing episodes from a season would be shown as opposed to a single episode that was the 10th in order, or episodes 4-8, etc.

Try Refreshing metadata on affected show; if that doesn't solve it, remove show from parent TV shows folder, scan, return it, scan.

@cptbrainiaIf I understand correctly this is about items appearing from Upcoming.  So you have to disable the per user setting on Settings-Display "Display missing episodes within seasons"

This is still a little independent of the per library setting.

It's possible that this may have resolved it.  Fortunately or unfortunately, Emby's behavior in this regard is unpredictable: it didn't always show missing episodes and what it did show (e.g. which missing episodes) changed regularly.

Is there a way to submit a bug fix for this?

Emby has always shown Upcoming the day of as Missing.

But would guess the Devs could find a way to completely ignore virtual items.

That should be upcoming and not missing. Are you seeing that?

With only user setting Display missing episodes within seasons, yesterday's episode haven't imported yet and future episode appear via virtual Upcoming episodes.

And Today's not aired yet episode + future episodes

There is currently no way to not see these unless you disable User settings.

Without custom css

@Luke We don't record Airday/Air time for series do we?

    <Airs_DayOfWeek>Tuesday</Airs_DayOfWeek>
    <Airs_Time>9:00 PM</Airs_Time>

As these items should not be missing until after their AirTime the day they air.

So this is just a quirk that happens on the day of the episode?

Will know for sure tomorrow but believe so.

 

Does populate future/unaired season per Upcoming data.

So the only way not to see any virtual items is disable user setting.

It is off by default though.
