PostSubject: Latest Version 1.988   Fri Oct 24, 2008 8:01 pm

This version includes some significant improvements to the program.

1) Scanning Drives for new movies has been optimised and now only takes a few seconds
2) The Main Movie Scraper Now runs on a seperate thread, the rest of the program remains largely functional.
3) <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> tag is now added to nfo files to allow UTF-8 encoded text into XBMC
4) After The Scraper has ended a full Log is output to a seperate window, this can be saved.
5) Users can add custom regex for TV Shows, "regex.xml" is provided as a demo in the new download. Any regex within this file will be added to the already existing regex.
The line <override>true</override> would remove the existing programmed regex.
6) Startup Mode has finally been enabled, The options are Start in Movie Mode, Start in TV Mode, or, Start in Last Used Mode.
7) Bug Saving TV Show Language Settings Have Been Fixed
Cool Bug causing exception when the fanart timer setting was empty has been fixed
9) Bug Episode Counter not reset when new episodes have been added
10) Many other bugfixes and minor improvements too many too mention


There has been many changes to the code and I am almost certain to have introduced some new bugs, this is an early release for testing, over the next week or so I will be adding Movie Fanart Edit feature. Hopefully any major bugs will have been reported before then and I will upload it to the website.

In order to help me solve this issue could you please answer the following questions.

Where exactly are you getting the errors, what are you trying to do.

Does a message box appear with the url causing the 404? If so what is the url?

If you open the config.xml file what is stored in the <tvdblanguage></tvdblanguage> tags?

What language have you set for the TVDB scraper?

Does this happen to all shows, or only specific shows, if it's only specific shows, could you give me an example of a show that gives you this error? Is the show available on TVDB in the language you have set to scrape?

Hi,

I also get the error while scraping American Chopper in v1.988
In the window the last lines say:
Scanning American Chopper for new episodes
133 episode found for the show
5 new episodes found for this show
Found Series 3, Episode 14
(Which actually doesn't exist on TheTVDB, only maybe the error isn't that nice)

And then:
System.Net.WebExeption: The remote server returned an error: (404) Not found.
at...

language not set (so english)

Removed config and nfo's, retried and same error at same episode, all other episodes are scraped fine.

Edit:
Same in:
Batman: The Animated Series 2 Episode 29, but now, the program keeps scraping and giving errors until the last episode (gives an error on all episodes above 28 and also in all episodes from season 3 and 4).
On TheTVDB there is something strange with this series also. But there is something strange with how it's on my disk also, cause I continues numbering instead of the normal SxxExx notation.

<tvdblanguage>en|English</tvdblanguage>

The scraper has found a file for season 2 episode 0 of the TV Show Brothers & Sisters, according to TVDB, there is no such episode, thats why you are getting a 404

None of the episodes you are having trouble with exist on TVDB, check your naming with TVDB before you scrape to stop this issue.

maybe you can change the error notice to show that the episode doesn't exist.

it's actually helped me because i would get the error and go back figure out where the name was wrong. would help if the error notice said what show/episode it was looking for caused the error. better than before though, when we wouldn't get any kind of error for episodes that weren't found.

While I would do that if it were possible, unfortunately, the 404 could also mean that the TVDB API or website is down for some reason, the 404 isn't specific enough to show either way what has caused the error.

Over the next few weeks I will be moving the TVDB Scraper onto it's own thread, much like the current movie scraper. I will add more information to the final log that will give both possible explanations to the error.

Thats what i though ....

Surpressing the error message and output to a long would be awesome .. because i leave XBMCmc to scrap unattended and user intervention is needed now before it can continue... and log would be great thanx
