no result for series

 

I am unable to get discriptions for series. Movies work fine.

I am using Webgrab+plus 2.15 and the latest ini files from the mdb downloads. I have read several posts on similar problems but cannot seem to identify what is going wrong.

I have tried each of the following with the same result:

imdb.com.bing_series.ini

imdb.com.imdb_series.ini

tvdb.com.bing.ini.ini

Can someone please tell me what I am doing wrong.

Thank you

(The log file is cut off as it takes several hours to complete and I aborted after a few minutes of failure)

this is why u get no matches for series shows.

i made a ini for tvmaze,its not as good as imdb but it may help depending on the info your looking to get.

this ini is for series show only,it will not work for movies.

i found using the default setting for series select/match worked good for me.

<selectserie>defaults</selectserie>

<matchserie>defaults</matchserie>

 

Much appreicated! Have a nice holiday .

Cheers

Hmm...yes I noticed this during the past week. Havent looked over if there might be a quick fix for the imdb bing series ini. I suspect the whole ini has to be rewritten and therefor requires Jans expertise.

Aha, that is unfortunate! It is going to be plenty of manual tinkering with the EPG then til this is fixed.

A nice findsmiley However it would be surprising such a big change doesnt break anything at all. We will see. Merry Christmas and Happy New Yearlaugh

I wish I knew more about this stuff to help, but wonder if the episode listings on the season pages provide enough information to scrub?

Example:

Two and a Half Men (Season 6)

Imdb executives are getting lots of complaints for having removed the collected episode page and the discussions are heating up. I would be surpised if they stick with this nonsence decision in the end.

Looks like they updated the IMDB site to list all the series shows on a page. I wonder if this will be enough to make the IMDB series work?

I was posting something similar, but you did beat me to it. 

Unfortunately these executive morons have ruined the imdb. They also refuse to listen to the massive critics.

Hi,

Just following up on this one. So what is the solution for series matching via mdb now? tvdb.com.bing doesn't appear to find anything on my guide.xml.
