v3.125 - unable to scrape episodes Empty
PostSubject: v3.125 - unable to scrape episodes   v3.125 - unable to scrape episodes Icon_minitimeSun Oct 18, 2009 1:07 am

Hi Billy, I've got a problem scraping episodes of several tv shows. I'm using version 3.125.

Here's an example of an episode taken from my log:

"Season and Episode information found for : E:\TV shows\Band Of Brothers\Band.Of.Brothers.E01.Currahee.720p.nfo7x20"

"Working on episode: E:\TV shows\Band Of Brothers\Band.Of.Brothers.E01.Currahee.720p.nfo
Looking up scraper options from tvshow.nfo
This episode could not be found on TVDB"

This happens even though the episode exists on the TVDB. No nfo is created for the episodes.

Also, there's an error message at the end of the log:

Error, exiting TV episode scraper
Error:-
System.NullReferenceException: Object reference not set to an instance of an object.

You need to change your naming convention

Even though band of brothers only has 1 season MC has no way to know that.

It is looking for season7 episode 20

Supported naming conventions would include

S01E01
1x1
01x01
01x1
1x01
101

the 720p in the filename is being picked up as
season 7 episode 20
which does not exist.

I will add filters for 720p 1080p etc later today, but you will still need to rename the file so that it contains valid season and episode info.

Band.Of.Brothers.S01E01.Currahee.720p.avi would work ok

The whole log is at pastebin.com.

It is not finding three files.

Season and Episode information found for : Z:\TV\Star Trek\Star Trek - S01E00 - The Cage.nfo01x00
Season and Episode information found for : Z:\TV\Star Trek\Star Trek - S01E10 - The Corbomite Maneuver.nfo01x10
Season and Episode information found for : Z:\TV\Star Trek\Star Trek - S01E01 - The Man Trap.nfo01x01

Working on episode: Z:\TV\Star Trek\Star Trek - S01E00 - The Cage.nfo
Looking up scraper options from tvshow.nfo
This episode could not be found on TVDB

Working on episode: Z:\TV\Star Trek\Star Trek - S01E10 - The Corbomite Maneuver.nfo
Looking up scraper options from tvshow.nfo
This episode could not be found on TVDB

Working on episode: Z:\TV\Star Trek\Star Trek - S01E01 - The Man Trap.nfo
Looking up scraper options from tvshow.nfo
This episode could not be found on TVDB

Then in the left hand pane of the TV show and looking at episodes for season 1, of course episode 00,01,10 are missing. The other thing is that name for episode 02 is the name for 10, name for episode 03 is the name for 01.

Looks weird that it is episodes 00,01, and 10. TVDB online shows my avi files have the correct numbers.

Episode 00 is the fault of MC, didn't program it to handle 0 as episode no, this has been fixed for the next build later today.

As for episodes 1 and 10
While they exist on the tvdb the website, the tvdb API is not showing them,

There is nothing I can do about it, but I've made a post on TVDB, hopefully they will be able to rectify it

"The Cage" also appears as S00E01 OR S00E02 (for extended version) i.e. under specials...but I would prefer it as S01E00 now that I see it on TVDB as that.


Edit:

I just noticed another issue with Star Trek Billy after noticing that some episodes where not labelled correctly.

S01E02 Charlie X is reported as 02 - Corbomite Manouver in MC &
S01E03 Where No Man Has Gone Before as 03 - The Man Trap

ep4 onwards appears correct except for the mentioned ep 10 which is missing of course.

I'm assuming this is also a TVDB issue, can you confirm & if so add this to the TVDB post re ep01&10?

This is the difference between the default order and the DVD order, just select DVD order for Star Trek, the default order being the order they were aired,
It's not an issue for most shows, but for some, like star trek tos, the order is different

PostSubject: Re: v3.125 - unable to scrape episodes   v3.125 - unable to scrape episodes Icon_minitimeSun Oct 18, 2009 9:28 pm

Hi Billy, thanks for helping out.

Naming the episode sith S01E01 worked for Band of Brothers but not for two of my other shows, Samantha who and big bang theory

When I scrape I get this log:

"Season and Episode information found for : E:\TV shows\Samantha Who\Season 2\Samantha.who.S02E01.So.I.Think.I.Can.Dance.nfo02x01"

"Season and Episode information found for : E:\Tv shows\The Big Bang theory\Season 3\The.big.bang.theory.S03E01.The.Electric.Can.Opener.Fluctuation.nfo03x01"

And further down it says:

"Working on episode: E:\TV shows\Samantha Who\Season 2\Samantha.who.S02E01.So.I.Think.I.Can.Dance.nfo
Looking up scraper options from tvshow.nfo
This episode could not be found on TVDB"

"Working on episode: E:\TV shows\The Big Bang theory\Season 3\The.big.bang.theory.S03E01.The.Electric.Can.Opener.Fluctuation.nfo
Looking up scraper options from tvshow.nfo
This episode could not be found on TVDB"

Again, this happens even though the episode is on the TVDB. I've tried naming it like 3x01 and 3x1 but it still doesn't work.

Again, this happens even though the episode is on the TVDB. I've tried naming it like 3x01 and 3x1 but it still doesn't work.

I've checked the TVDB API and its working properly here, I suspect you have the show sort order set to "DVD", which is not valid for this show.

When viewing the main TV Show information, there are 3 buttons at the bottom, click on the one underneath the label "sort order" so that the button text is "default"
This should fix the issue.

The DVD sort order should only be used for TV Shows where the air order is different from the dvd order, most shows will want to be default though.

Hope this helps.

Billy, I can't seem to scrape the Star Trek episode S01E00, Nor will it work if I change it to S00E01 as a special....

I had to use the DVD sort order since the aired order that is scraped is different to what TVDB shows as the aired order......(Why is that anyway?)

From memory without DVD sort order it worked OK....

Cheers

For some reason "The cage" wont list on the api when using "DVD Order"

The only fix I can come up with would be to scrape all shows using dvd order, then switch to default order and scrape again to add "The cage"

Just remember that this will effect the rescrape function aswell, so if you re-scrape "the cage" then set this option to default, but for anything else set it to "DVD"


I know it is a pain, but there is no way other than the series and episode no's to identify an episode and since the shows are sometimes ordered differently on a dvd, there can sometimes be differences.

9 times out of 10 they are the same, but sometimes for various reasons, episodes are aired out of order, but when the dvd is made then the order is changed, usually for purposes of fixing continuity errors. A good example of this is "Firefly", the original pilot was not aired until halfway through its run, this let to a lot of continuity problems. On the dvd the order is much more watchable.
