Inconsistant Guide Data


Best Answer dranderson402 , 08 October 2019 - 03:33 PM

The TVDB update to pull the year from the episode level appears to be working so far. I had 3 new shows record last night that was putting them in folders without the year and now they are in a folder with the year. Time will tell for sure, but I see this as working.

I'm noticing a small problem with the guide data. I have Big Brother set to record. I'm noticing that the recordings are being placed in two different folders. Some shows go to a folder named Big Brother while others go to Big Brother (2000). The show is on 3 days a week and it seems to be changing folders every 1 or 2 shows. Unfortunately I haven't written down the pattern as I just keep moving the files from one folder to the folder with the latest recording. I can tell you that this past Wednesday's episode (s21e07) went to the "Big Brother" folder while last nights (s21e08) went to the "Big Brother (2000)" folder. I believe the both episodes 5 and 6 went to the "Big Brother" folder, I just don't remember for sure.

 

I'm using the USA OTA data. I've also noticed this happening a few times for another show called The Code.

Here is the log from the day Big Brother recorded and put the file in the "Big Brother" folder without the date.

 

FYI, I have to recording set to end 60 minutes late due to sports and other events sometimes running over. The recording should have started at 8pm, or a minute early as it's set.

There nothing they can do as problem is coming from EPG provider and where they get it from which is incomplete data, I saw same problem on SageTV, NextPVR and yes even EMBY but not local off air EPG from offline server

Do like I do just move it to right folder and season folder and del that folder it auto check it on next scan or do manual rescan

I thought it would be the provider. I've been moving the old files to the new folder thinking something in the guide data changed. Guess I'll just use the original folder and move things as you suggest.

Actually there is something we can do. If the guide data includes the zap2it id, then we use that to lookup the series on tvdb and try to determine the series year.

This is already in the 4.1 server release that you have now but it's improved in the upcoming 4.2 release.

For now I would just merge the folders manually and then run a library scan. Please let us know if this helps. Thanks.

Now that the fall season has started, I've noticed 3 different shows, on 3 different channels all saved their recordings to a folder without the year. Last week they all saved to a folder with the year. I am running the latest 4.2 version but whatever improvments you were referring to doesn't seem much better. Is there any plans to make things better in the next version? I'm thinking of resubscribing to schedules direct for now, unless that option is slated for removal.

Here is the log from last night's recordings. The shows are as follows.

 

The Resident at 19:00 on 44.2

NCIS at 19:00 on 44.1

This is Us at 20:00 on 14.1

 

All of these shows put the recordings in a folder without the year.

Last week these 3 shows put their recordings in folders that included the year.

The issue is tvdb sending back forbidden responses:

I'm not sure why but I'm not seeing that now in my own testing. 

 

But this is an example of something that could prevent us from being able to determine the series year.

I pushed an update to the tvdb plugin to try and get the series year using episode level metadata when the series date from tvdb is empty.

I'm not sure why but I'm not seeing that now in my own testing. 

 

But this is an example of something that could prevent us from being able to determine the series year.

 

Would it be better to just let series recordings just put the recordings in the show's folder without the year? That way if the year is missing then the recordings still only go to one folder. If a show is misidentified then it can be manually corrected in the metadata manager.

 

Also, fyi, 5 shows I recorded last night all went to folders without the year where last week they did. I checked the log and I have the same tvdb forbidden log entries. In fact, I see them throughout yesterday's log at times other than the recording times. I've included yesterday's log for reference. Wondering if maybe I'm getting forbidden messages for too many consecutive connections or something.
