Survivor - Season 28 MB3 missing an episode

TV

Best Answer Redshirt , 28 March 2014 - 11:15 AM

MB will only be showing the first episode as a two parter if the file is named that way on the file system. I'm seeing the same thing with the same season... Turns out I'm missing an episode that I've actually watched. Should be fun to try and re-acquire.

Anyone else with the following problem:

 

TVDB has the first episode - 2 hours as a single episode

 

http://thetvdb.com/?...id=573373&lid=7

 

MediaBrowser is showing the two hour episode as episode 1 & 2, so now Episode 3 & 4 are incorrect.  Media Browser finally fixed itself with Episode 5 to match TVDB, however, I'm missing the real episode 4.

 

Has anyone see this with other shows?  Anyone have a fix?

 

Thanks in advance!

You can edit the metadata for the episodes and set the Absolute Episode number. Unfortunately this happens a lot with two hour episodes.

Yes, as well with dvd based episodes as well.

Thanks everyone!

 

Redshirt answer was the cause of my issue.  The program which controls my episode downloading/moving/renaming had called the first episode S28E01-02 which cause the following episodes to be incorrect.  When E04 wasn't found E05 worked as expected which made MB3 look correct but when watching the show you could easily tell there was a missing episode between "04" and "05". 

 

Manually renamed them, refreshed and they are all showing up as should be.  Problem solved!
