PostSubject: v3.237 Ampersand ('&') in tv show directory name sometimes fails   Wed Mar 24, 2010 3:09 pm

I have 2 tv shows with an ampersand character in the directory name containing the show files.
I have named both directories exactly like the name listed in thetvdb.
One is recognised and scrapes correctly, the other one doesn't and picks up the wrong show.
The one that works seems to have picked up an IMDB id, and so perhaps (?) that's why it works.

For testing, here are the 2 tv shows:
1. Works: Sex, Lies & Michael Aspel
2. Fails: Best & Worst Places To Live

For the one that fails it seems to be picking up 'Best Evidence' instead.

Any ideas?

Thanks.

EDIT: I'm trying to fix the show entry in CM now by pasting in the id from thetvdb and it seems to have now pulled in the correct show info. But for bug fixing, this still might be of interest to improve CM.

MC is working correcty, even though it is scraping the wrong show. Due to the way TVDB returns results this is occasionally going to happen.

No need to be manually editing the nfo with the correct ID, just use the 'TV Show Selector' Tab (Only available after MC has completed auto scraping new folders)

You will see from the list that the top returned item is 'Best Evidence',
'Best & Worst Places To Live' is listed further down the list for some reason that is only known to those that program TVDBs API.

Just select the correct show from the list and click the 'Scrape Show with Selected Options' button. The old nfo will be overwritten with the selected one.

Thanks for that very useful tip. I think if I'd known that earlier it might have saved me a bit of time manually editing NFOs etc Smile
