Thank you!  I think it is cool that your Kodi addon catches any problem shows.

Re: Kodi Add-On Beta Discussion

I managed to fix all the show errors (except for the very last one, which is a weird and buggy entry on thetvdb.com - I have no idea what it matched it against in your library): http://thetvdb.com/?tab=series&id=62927

As for the movies - we get the movies from themoviedb.com - so if something is missing - it has to be added in there first ...

Cheers!

I have a feeling that show was Dark Angel (2016). thetvdb.com sometimes adds then deletes a show based on not having enough episodes. Lots of drama usually ensues in the forums :-)  Thetvdb now have a permanent page for Dark Angel (2016) which I don't see linked on the page here.

https://next-episode.net/dark-angel-2016

http://thetvdb.com/?tab=series&id=319049

If a show listed on here doesn't have a link to the TVDB, would it automatically not update aquired/watched statuses?
I looked up Dark Angel under tracking and even though I aquired the first episode I don't show it as aquired.

I also aquired and watche Brief Encounters a while bac.
https://next-episode.net/brief-encounters.
Under episodes, Brief Encounter episodes don't show as aquired nor watched. Missing TVDB link to
http://thetvdb.com/?tab=series&id=313785

When I manually unwatch an episode on Kodi using the context menu, That episode shows up as aquired

Re: Kodi Add-On Beta Discussion

1) added the dark angel tvdb id

2) even if it only shows tvmaze for a show, that doesn't mean the tvdb id isn't there (it just means this specific show updates from tvmaze and that's why it's linked in more info). So the visible link doesn't mean a ton, but if there is no thetvdb id in the database for a show - it cannot automatically be acquired or watched through the addon.

3) Brief Encounters has the tvdb id so it should be fine.

If you then manually watch it from the context menu - does it get marked watched on the site?

Re: Kodi Add-On Beta Discussion

Thank you!

Yes manually marking a show watched or unwatched works great. Considering the size of my collection, I think the add-on did a great job.  I even found shows I didn't even know I had by viewing them on Next Episode. It is also easy to find what episodes I am missing. So great that you also track specials.

Re: Kodi Add-On Beta Discussion

Happy 2017!  Still using Kodi addon daily and it works great. The Episodes tab is fantastic on nextepisode.net and IOS apps.  The small price for a premium membership is so worthwhile.  Aquired and watched statuses make keeping track of what I have vs what I need ver easy. That together with the customizable search function for episodes is brilliant - Thank you.

I got Data Update Error!Please report it to next-episode.net on Kodi. Added the URLS to the codes:
Failed Movies:
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1737724/
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt2234162/
Failed TV shows:
thetvdb.com/?tab=series&id=321231

Tv show is Cardinal - I see a listing on here that is the right show, but the Kodi addon doesn't recognize it. Aquired status field isn't updating either because it's not linked to its page on thetvdb.com . I made a "request a show" for Cardinal thinking it might be easier to add the thetvdb.com source.  Then I realized that might be confusing so posting here.

Thanks for all your hard work.

Re: Kodi Add-On Beta Discussion

Added thetvdb id to Cardinal and the show should be fine now.

As for the movies - seems like they're either not on themoviedb.com or their imdb ids are not. You can try and edit the records on themoviedb.com to include those imdb ids to get rid of their errors.

Cheers!

Re: Kodi Add-On Beta Discussion

Thank you.

Hey I just had to reformat my Amazon Fire TV where Kodi resided and didn't have a backup (ooops).

Was wondering if I can transfer the watched status from next-episode.net to Kodi.  The Kodi add-on has been brilliant going from Kodi to next-episode, but I don't see an obvious option to restore data.  This is an important feature especially if a user wants to start from scratch due to database corruption or  fanart bloat in Kodi..

Re: Kodi Add-On Beta Discussion

Yes you're right. This was something that was planned for the KODI add-on but is not yet implemented.

Good deal.  Let me know if you want a tester when the feature comes around to getting implemented. Would love to help out.

I found that I was still (unintentionally) tracking using an another service whose website was way too overdesigned for me to use - hence my migration to next-episode. Was able to restore my watched statuses.  Will use them as a backup, but their interface gives me a headache and takes too long to load, etc. On the kodi end, the other service has so many scrobbling popups  constantly that I shut notifications off and never visited their website again.

Thank you for keeping things simple and elegant here on the next-episode.net site. The kodi addon is unobtrusive, and when it does show an error message, it is relevant and helps me figure out if a thetvdb.com entry is needed or if it needs to be linked on here.

Doing the reload, I found out that Sense8 has a new episode for S02E01 according to tvdb:

http://thetvdb.com/?tab=seasonall&i … &lid=7

Re: Kodi Add-On Beta Discussion

Thanks for the kind words smile Keeping it simple and functional is kinda the motto here on Next Episode.

Regarding Sense8 - this is actually a special and not the beginning of S2, that's why I prefer the tvmaze listing (which lists S2, but doesn't list this special).

Cheers!

I wish I could override thetvdb.com with www.tvmaze.com for certain shows in kodi.  thetvdb.com has certain rules and personalities that sometimes make it hard to fix a listing.  I agree it should just be listed as a special like all the Dr. Who and Downton Abbey Xmas specials.

I have started to contribute show and episode information/artwork to both tvmaze and thetvdb. Both sites have given me more permission.  If you need an assist sometime please let me know.

Just out of curiousity, what is your personal media center setup?  If it is covered somewhere else in the forums, please direct me there so you don't have to repeat yourself here :-)

Re: Kodi Add-On Beta Discussion

I've probably mentioned it around before, but it's nothing fancy - just a KODI dedicated windows machine with a harmony remote (to control it + the tv and the audio system).

As for overriding thetvdb with tvmaze - I suggest you start a different thread in the forum with what you suggest be switched from thetvdb to tvmaze (or vice versa) and I'll monitor it and switch the stuff, accordingly smile

Re: Kodi Add-On Beta Discussion

Kodi next-episode.net failed TV show: 311968. Happened when I marked an episode watched.

It's "Doubt" which is on here already - probably needs a link to http://thetvdb.com/?tab=series&id=311968

Artwork is updated on thetvdb as well, but that is less important.

The way the next-episode.net Kodi addon is written, doesn't it rely on a thetvdb.com link for each show? Would be great if somehow we could add the link or suggest an edit right from a show's page so you don't have to enter stuff manually all the time.

Re: Kodi Add-On Beta Discussion

Thanks, added tvdb id!

Re: Kodi Add-On Beta Discussion

Error messages are also written into Kodi log, so you don't need to type failed movie and tv IDs manually.

Re: Kodi Add-On Beta Discussion

@romanvm_1 - I've fixed your _1 forum user, but please log out of the site and log back in so the change can be applied.

Re: Kodi Add-On Beta Discussion

Here's a few more. Downloaded episodes via excellent search function for next-episode.net 1st season recommendations. Shows don't seem to have tvdb links so the kodi add-on gets error messages and doesn't update/add shows to my episode page.

Data update error! Please report it to next-episode.net
Failed TV shows: 322494. 324793. 311833, 322466

all three scraper sites have show names as follows - please change so searches work:
Taken (2016) should be Taken (2017)
A. P. B. should be APB.

Thanks!

Re: Kodi Add-On Beta Discussion

Added thetvdb id to the 4 shows you mentioned.

APB and Taken updated as well!
