Failed to fetch : How to exclude years from tvdb search ?

Post by nux » 01 Mar 2020, 13:13

Hi,

I'm trying to rename this filename : Avenue.5.2020.S01E06.VO.HDTV.x264.mp4
Rename episodes using [TheTVDB]
Auto-detected query: [avenue 5 2020, 5 2020]
CmdlineException: Multiple queries: Processing multiple shows at once requires -non-strict matching: [avenue 5 2020, 5 2020]
This show is available by typing "avenue 5"
> https://thetvdb.com/search?query=avenue%205

But not "avenue 5 2020"
> https://thetvdb.com/search?query=avenue%205%202020

<--->

I have same problem with : Traces.2019.S01E02.VO.HDTV.x264.mp4
Rename episodes using [TheTVDB]
Auto-detected query: [traces 2019]
Failed to fetch episode data: [traces 2019]
CmdlineException: Failed to match files to episode data
This show is available by typing "traces"
> https://thetvdb.com/search?query=traces

But not "traces 2019"
> https://thetvdb.com/search?query=traces%202019

<--->

I have another problem with this type of filename : The.Magicians.US.S05E08.VO.WEBRip.x264.mp4

The show is named "The Magicians"
> https://thetvdb.com/series/the-magicians-2015

In the filename you can see ".US." // it's means "US show" (maybe there is UK show or similar)

Problem is filebot search for the magicians US
> https://thetvdb.com/search?query=the+magicians+US

<--->

I know I can rename this filename : Avenue.5.2020.S01E06.VO.mp4 to Avenue.5.S01E06.VO.mp4

But I would prefer to exclude "2020" or "2019" or "US" or others words from tvdb search, is it possible?

Regards

Sorry, the current behaviour is required for some use cases go actually get the correct match. Oddly enough, the examples here work exactly the other way around.

:arrow: Best to report the issue on the TheTVDB Forums so they can fix the issue in their search engine or alternatively add the necessary alias names.


EDIT:

Oddly enough, it works for me:

Code: Select all

filebot -rename *.mp4 -non-strict --log INFO --action TEST
[TEST] from [Avenue.5.2020.S01E06.VO.HDTV.x264.mp4] to [Avenue 5 - 1x06 - Was It Your Ears.mp4]
[TEST] from [The.Magicians.US.S05E08.VO.WEBRip.x264.mp4] to [The Magicians (2015) - 5x08 - Garden Variety Homicide.mp4]
[TEST] from [Traces.2019.S01E02.VO.HDTV.x264.mp4] to [Traces - 1x02 - Episode 2.mp4]
Perhaps try the latest beta for good measure?
