It would be cool if it showed missing TV episodes. For example if you go to season 1 and in the list the missing episodes are grayed out.

I would really like to see this as well. It would be particularly handy if I could link files to missing episodes, as I have some shows where the file simply doesn't come up for some reason.

I am looking at something like this in the medium term.

It will most probably be a kind of filter. Will think about it more carefully once I get to it.

It would be nice to see and export a list of missing episodes in MC. (Found Rename&missing check ) on google code.

Watched a season of a series (without looking at numbers) in XBMC only later to realize we missed a critical episode jocolor

I don't know if this will be of any use but if you have a look at this website, it allows you to view/download a list of shows & episodes.

http://www.mytvwebsite.com/showlist.php

Now the thing is the whole website can be downloaded yourself& used to host your own list....

Just wondering if this in any way me be able to be used by MC to work out what episodes a show has so that it can indicate which shows we are missing.

Cheers

I am looking in to this, and will definately be added at some point over the next few weeks.

@Stormyknight
I was looking at the TV Rage API (http://services.tvrage.com/info.php?page=public&go=fullschedule) although basic, it would serve the purpose. I think ripping the full data may well be counted an abuse of the service and almost certainly overkill.

The only real problem would be ensuring the correct show details were obtained, it may be better to use TVDB.

You can do this with the tvdb api.

1) From a list of shows, I touch a 0 byte file within named <show>\<show>.s01e01.avi

2) Scrape with tvmetadatafinder to get .nfo files to get the tvdbid.

3) use the tvdb api with the tvdbid to get .xml file, and the episodes.xml. Parse the xml files to get all season, all episodes numbers and titles, all specials, (show\season 00\show.s00eXX.title.avi)

4) touch the files to create 0 byte files. ie . 24\season 01\24.s01e01.avi

5) use MC to get all the metadata.

essentially I end up with an offline setup with all the metadata but no avis.

There is nothing intrinsically different in MC parsing tvcache.xml and the episode xml to find the differences to create the "missing episode" list. MC could use this method and grey out all 0 byte files, marking them as missing. This would be different to an explicitly specified offline folder. MC could then offer an option of marking the missing episodes to a list somewhere, generating a torrent search <ahem> for all the legal downloads, or blocking the ability to play the next non-missing episodes until you've obtained the missing one...

I did most of this before coming across MC, which is very close to doing all the above in one go, but isn't quite there yet.
