MDB Help

Hello All :)

Could someone help with MDB please?

I have tried to use the ini files in to MDB folder in the latest site.ini but most of the ini files are a few years old. So I have set my MDB config to use the latest two:

But I always get an unhandled exception after a few items are found OK.

Are there newer ini files to donators?

I'm mainly trying to get season/episode numbers for tvpassport (which doesn't seem to have this) for those channels that are not available on tvguide.com...eg Comet TV.
I'm using xmltv_ns in my grabs for TVGuide and RadioTimes and that works great when imported into NextPVR.

Also, is there a recommended mdb_config.xml that others use that works with certain MDB ini's?

It would also be great to use MDB to get more movie info in my grabs too.

Any help would be greatly appreciated as I have spent several days trying to get this working.

Thanks in advance
:)

Latest 2 post in this forum report problem with max word and sentence, informed the authors to see if it can be solved. Would be good if in the meantime you can post your mdb config.

Hello mat8861 again, I hope you are well :0)

I've attached the log as requested, its for HBO USA, although I suspect its particular TV programmes as it errors for different sites and channels.

Rather than have 1 big config xml I split the configs into channel groups, like CineMax, HBO, Showtime etc. and use a bat file to pass each folder as a CLI parameter to webgrab++

Initially I thought the fault was an apostrophe in the programme description in the XML and I removed it but it failed in the same place when re-run. I removed the TV program from the xml and it continued past this point OK until it hit the same program "Lovecraft Country". However, I have tried other channels (sky.com for UK) and it fails somewhere in the scrubbing.

Is there some way to get a more detailed logged error as "Unhandled Exception" doesn't help me to debug this.

Thanks for your help

In siteini imdb.com.ask_series.ini (rev.8) right after this line
mdb_description.scrub {regex|p1||\s+(.+?)\s+?||}
Add:
mdb_description.modify {replace|'| }
and see if it crash

Hello matt8861

I have checked the imdb.com.ask_series.ini and that line isn't there, I doubled checked with the latest site.ini (2/10 I think) it doesn't have that line.

The closest line I can find is
mdb_description.scrub {regex|p1||\s+(.+?)\s+?||}

So I added mdb_description.modify {replace|'| } to the line after, as suggested, but it made no difference.

I then set the ini to
mdb_description.scrub {regex|p1||\s+(.+?)\s+?||}
mdb_description.modify {replace|'| }

But it still failed.:o(

Thanks for your help :o)

Strange i see you use the right version "8"...so it's right after line 94, add the change and try if it stops at same point.

Looks ok so the problem must be somewhere else, can you post the guide.xml with this episode so we can see what the problem is? Thanks

Is the support helpful?

The crash of series matching was caused by an omission in the postprocessor if series have incomplete episode data or if no episode num pattern is specified. It is fixed in V3.1.2 beta
There is also a revision (9) of imdb.com.ask_series.ini that improves the matching and also is a bit faster.

One remark for users who wonder why some series take a lot of time to match .. the new series matching in IMDb has to use a system that downloads a html page for each season untill it finds a matching episode title or episode number. (previously IMDb had a single page with a listing of all seasons). If a series has a lot of seasons, it can take some time ! Example, try Sesame Street with 50 seasons!
