Re: Strict mode causes fb to "Ignore orphaned subtitles"

Thanks..

Any work around?
Any ideas why fb had an issue with “True Things 2021” and matched it to “Terrible Things 2021” ?

Strict mode causes fb to "Ignore orphaned subtitles"

I have a post-download filebot shell script that missed some pretty simple file names (will give example below). It was set to -non-strict mode. In a recent post Red said to use strict mode if the file is being matched incorrectly. Tried that once and the mp4 file was matched correctly but the subti...

Re: [Filebot-xpra] For western TV, {db.TheTVDB.plex} and {plex} sometimes yield different episode numbers.

Wish I had received this simple bit of information as an option :x I have struggled with this for a very, very long time and received overly complicated advice . Appears to be much easier to implement in my AMC script. What's happening now is a series is downloaded named with the correct production ...

Re: TVDB policy regarding out of order series

@rednoah, That worked really well for those two series but everything else fails now, including movies. This is obviously far more complicated than just adding --filter and some arguments. It requires a complete rebuild of my script. Don't know why I was expecting it to only apply to shows that have...

Re: TVDB policy regarding out of order series

Thanks for this. I am finally getting around to it again. :arrow: In this case, you'll want to use the --filter option to exclude "SNL Poland" , or include "Saturday Night Live" exclusively.

Re: TVDB policy regarding out of order series

@kim
Thanks for sticking with me on this.
I am having more mismatches using this method on other shows when it’s just the name of the show and season. How would I only apply his method to certain troublesome shows like NOVA and not to other shows?

Re: TVDB policy regarding out of order series

Is there a good reason why I shouldn't use it the way it is now?

Keeping the default save path as:

Code: Select all

/Volumes/PlexMedia/PlexServer_1
And defining paths for files I don't want to end up in the default path.

Thank you I’ll look at that when I get back. I use an AMC Script and rarely have to use the GUI. What I want is for Plex to show them properly. Proper name and proper season and episode are required.

Re: TVDB policy regarding out of order series

To be clear… The files I am getting are already named with the correct season and episode (from NOVA). They are then mapped by TVDB to the incorrect episodes when renaming with FileBot.

TVDB policy regarding out of order series

Last year season 47 of NOVA was shown out of series order. Meaning shows that were supposed to air later aired earlier or vice versa. This happens once in awhile and NOVA isn't the only series. TVDB has a policy that all shows on their site are listed in Aired Order which is fine, but then they modi...

Re: filebot -script fn:history no longer working --SOLVED

Apparently filebot's "system.properties" is sensitive to case.

Code: Select all

/Users/user/.filebot/system.properties
this works:

Code: Select all

net.filebot.logging.debug=WARNING
this caused filebot to not startup:
