Ever since version 4.1.0.26 was installed, every TV show that is imported into the library is getting the incorrect metadata.

My actual recordings are done in NextPVR and I use the plugin. MCEbuddy converts the show and then sends it to the Library. That operation is being done correctly. But Emby retrieves incorrect info about the show and displays other show information in the library.

As an example, I recorded 'The Dead Files'. Emby turns every show into a show called 'My Fighting Season'. I don't even know what that show is or where it came from. If I play the show, the correct show plays, just all the metadata is wrong.

 

Never had this issue before the update

 

How do I fix this?

Sounds like you may want to disable internet metadata for your recordings library.

No, that setting only applies after the initial scan. You need to disable the internet metadata providers, and image providers.

Ok I am going to run some tests by deleting the files in the library then putting it back and see what it comes up with.

I really don't want to totally remove the ability to get metadata

I'm guessing these are not saved using supported tv naming conventions and that is the reason for the problem.

I can repeat the problem by deleting the show, then copying it back.

 

After unchecking all the metadata sources, I get no data in the show anymore. That is unacceptable.

I recorded this show every night for months without problems before the last update. what changed that could have affected it?

Worked fine before 4.1.0.26

I have control over the naming convention in MCEBuddy. What is Emby looking for exactly?

I looked at my history, and it seems to happen only to shows with no season number in the directory name. Not sure if that is a problem or not

The shows that are experiencing the issue have S00 as the season number. So 4.1.0.26 is handling these differently

Was just going to as for exact folder and naming scheme.  As Luke mentioned it sounds like the "Improve series folder detection" does not like how this series is configured.

That's the problem. As soon as I put the season and episode numbers in there, it worked.

 

So what has changed in 4.1.0.26 is what Emby is passing to the metadata providers. if there is no Season and Episode in the file name, it just picks arbitrary data.

A lot of shows do not have season and episode data in the file name. Sometimes, just the date or episode title.

But it use to work before 4.1.0.26.

Or many shows. Like specials and one shots. They have no Season or Episode data. Need to put it back the way it was

Nothing has changed. We'd have to go over a specific example in detail.

Ok easy

pick any video and name it 'The Last Word With Lawrence O'Donnell - S00 -  - 04.19.18

you will see the wrong metatdata

Then do it again using this - 'The Last Word With Lawrence O'Donnell - SE09E80 -  - 04.19.18'

Then it get the correct metadata.

 

The way this show is named has not changed in ages. Worked fine before 4.1.0.26

 

here's another one that works differently now.

The Dead Files 2019_04_18_18_00_00 - Revealed  Deranged - Falconer, New York

Gets the wrong metadata. These special episodes have no season and episode number .

This is the file naming/structure I have always used. The difference is some shows do not have season and/or episode numbers. I have no controlover that.

I just started a recording of CNN news, which has no season or episode data and I instructed MCEbuddy to include the nfo data, which has the correct data in it.

Emby still picks up 'My Fighting Season' as the metadata and did not consider the nfo supplied by MCEbuddy.

here is the file name - 'CNN Newsroom With Ana Cabrera - SE00 -  - 04.20.13'

As I said earlier, not every show has season/episode info

There's something wrong here guys!

I copied the same show to the beta server and it did the same thing.

I would say Emby is trying to identify something that is unidentifiable (by that naming scheme).  Are you saying Emby was able to identify that naming scheme before or Emby just presented it "as is" with that naming scheme?

Found out more with tests.

This bogus metadata only happens when the show is in a folder named 'Season'

ie. D:\TVShows\CNN Newsroom With Ana Cabrera\Season\CNN Newsroom With Ana Cabrera - SE00 -  - 04.20.13.mp4

 

if I use this, I do not get any metadata. With or without the nfo from MCEbuddy

ie. D:\TVShows\CNN Newsroom With Ana Cabrera\CNN Newsroom With Ana Cabrera - SE00 -  - 04.20.13.mp4

 

I did a replace missing metadata on the library and lost half of my library images.
