TVDB Api Issues


Best Answer Luke , 19 November 2019 - 10:18 AM

Here's a patch to the tvdb plugin that works around the .zip.xml thing. Use at your own risk though because we don't know yet if the data coming back can be fully trusted at this point.

 

Edit: Tvdb plugin update 1.0.20 released.

Can you go over an example, I haven't come across any issues yet.  Unless this is a language issue, but need examples.

I've attached an example with multiple seasons in it in my previous post. Happy to attach some of the others if it helps :) Thanks for looking in to it

@Luke I can confirm that after updating from the catalogue and running a full metadata refresh (including ticking the box to replace existing images) on my TV Shows, all season posters are now showing up perfectly. Thanks to you and the team. :-)

@Luke @Happy2Play 1.0.25.0 seems pretty sweet.

 

I checked a series I was having issues with (Specifically the one I attached above) and although the XML claims there are season posters, they do not display on their own site. In fact I tried to retrieve the entire series again it lost the series poster which was on their site!

 

I'm guessing they are still migrating media in to their collection or whatever. (I hope they haven't lost much in the change over process).

 

I'm just glad my media collection looks great again!

 

I love Emby and have been using it since it was called MediaBrowser, the Emby team has done a top notch job!

 

Anyway thanks and lets hope TVDB fix the last issues quickly :)

Emby Server supports both MovieDb and Fanart for both series and season posters. Make sure the image fetchers are enabled in your library settings.

@Luke It doesn't appear Absolute order is working.  I only tested on Firefly, it maintains the Aired order.

 

Or are there other dependencies for Absolute order, like naming?

Should Firefly order be different with absolute? Usually with that series it's Dvd order that you'd be using, if you're not using Aired.

Just testing the info returned from TVDB.  It should be the same as DVD in this test case.  One shows one more episode then the other on TVDB.

 

So if Absolute order is suppose to read "<absolute_number>", then it currently does not work in this example.

You've have to remove the season number from each episode in order for absolute numbering to work, although we should be able to improve that for single season shows like this.

Thanks!

Trying to add Curb Your Enthusiasm and it is not recognized, are there new issues? Even when I manually match it, the episode names are not fetched.
