AMC problem - change TVDB default series choice

Post by abrexis » 15 Mar 2013, 12:19

Hi,

Sorry if this question has already been answered, I couldn't find it if so!

I've set up the automatic media centre with utorrent and filebot, and it's working fantastically with the exception of one issue – for a couple of shows the TVDB will default to choosing a different series of the same name. So, for instance, if I download the 2012 series Smash it will be renamed and filed as a Swedish show Smash from the 90s.

I was hoping there was some obvious way (that has completely passed me by) to add to the utorrent script to specify which series info is to be fetched.

Thanks!

Can you give me the filenames? Ideally it'll consider the two identical matches and then go for the one where the lastModified date matches the airdate more closely.

EDIT: It's a bug. Didn't know there can be shows with exactly the same name. Usually there'd be a (US) etc. I'll fix it.

EDIT2: Fixed with r1534.

Code: Select all

Parameter: ut_kind = multi
Parameter: ut_dir = D:\testdata\AMC-TEST
Parameter: ut_title = AMC-TEST
Input: D:\testdata\AMC-TEST\Smash 1x01.avi

I'm running filebot 3.6 on cygwin

Code: Select all

[email protected]:/tmp$ filebot.cmd -version
FileBot 3.6 (r1600) / Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment 1.7.0_09
and this issue is still there.

Any ideas?

Multiple shows with the same name should be fixed already, in various aspects actually.

Works for me:

Code: Select all

Parameter: clean = n
Parameter: ut_kind = multi
Parameter: ut_dir = D:\testdata\AMC-TEST
Parameter: ut_title = AMC-TEST
Input: D:\testdata\AMC-TEST\dl\tv.us\Smash.S02E11.720p.HDTV.X264-DIMENSION\Smash.S02E11.720p.HDTV.X264-DIMENSION.mkv

With r1600 there shouldn't be any more of these issues. What I find very confusing is that you have filebot.cmd which doesn't exist since v3.5 or higher.
