Anyone else having major issues with the site? Looks like they are doing an overhall on it and MCM is having all kinds of issues with it. I can't parse my downloads. They keep saying can't detect if it's a TV episode or Movie.

Code:
MCM:  Now working on The.Blacklist.S05E20.720p.HDTV.x264-AVS.mkv...
thetvdb.com  Searching by season 5, episode 20
MCM:  ... this is a T.V. show episode (detected using quick method)
MCM:  I'm not sure if this file is a T.V. episode or a movie -- I can't detect it as either:  The.Blacklist.S05E20.720p.HDTV.x264-AVS.mkv
MCM:  The file is not named in a way I understand.  If this is a T.V. episode and you have a scan folder set up for it, then you may want to add a T.V. detection override settings to manually map a series description to its ID.

Same here. Maybe this has something to do with the new API they launched?

Until TVDB resolves their issue there is nothing MCM can do.


Your only option is changing your fetcher to IMDB but you will not get the same results as TVDB, but MCM will process your episodes.


TVDB was hit and miss for me but everything eventually got processed. I believe MCM is already using the new api.

What is happening over on theTVDb is a total clusterf..k

I have to question their release strategy as I could not at first log in with IE 11 and latest FF only Chrome. Now after getting a few Error 503 and Error 504 I finally get to the episode level of the shows but get an Unexpected Error when trying to upload an image for Expanse S03E04 just a royal PITA.

However I do have a request. MCM does process the Expanse and other well known shows like Flash (2014) and Once Upon a Time. However it has a real problem with a German show. I manually created and modified a series.xml file based on the Flash (2014). It displays properly in EMBY and it should therefore work for the fetching, however it does not. Here are the details:

Der Lack ist Ab / The Glory is Gone

<id>295714</id>
<IMDbId>tt4714132</IMDbId>

I can navigate to the place on the site but any combination of German / English title and German / English language TV fetcher gives me the following results in MCM:

MCM: [F#1] now working on Der Lack ist Ab
thetvdb.com TV fetcher source is offline!

MCM: [F#1] now working on The Glory is Gone
thetvdb.com TV fetcher source is offline!

It is obvious the the TV fetcher is not offline, I just have the sad feeling that because of theTVDB's clusterf..k MCM is now also effected.

Tried it again and they seemed to have solved the problems that I had of not finding a foreign language TV Show.

You have to remember the api is different then the website. But yes the entire issue was TVDB and their website update. Every time TVDB has issues the "The file is not named in a way I understand." can/will happen.


Code:
MCM:  The file is not named in a way I understand.  If this is a T.V. episode and you have a scan folder set up for it, then you may want to add a T.V. detection override settings to manually map a series description to its ID.


But there are situations where this is not always the issue, example (when a override is need).

I'm not sure MCM is using the new API, because ppl are reporting that new episodes added after the API changes aren't found by MCM. Older ones, are. And i can confirm that.
