AMC: TheTVDB results missing latest episodes

Post by sentience »

Over the past several weeks, new episodes of The Late Show with Stephen Colbert have been getting randomly identified as old episodes, and being renamed incorrectly as a result. The log file shows that the correct episode is not listed in the "Include" list of TheTVDB results; however, I checked and confirmed that the episode in question was listed on TheTVDB website at the time the FileBot process ran.

What might be happening here? Is FileBot using a stale cache of the results from TheTVDB? Why would this only be affecting one show?

In the following log, the correct episode number was 6x30, but as you can see the list of episodes from TheTVDB stop at 6x31, so the file was detected as episode 5x11 for some reason. I checked and confirmed that episodes 6x30 and 6x31 were listed on thetvdb.com before this process was run.

It works for me now:

Code: Select all

$ filebot -list --q "The Late Show with Stephen Colbert" --db TheTVDB --log INFO --filter "age < 7" --format "{d} | {episode}"
2020-11-02 | The Late Show with Stephen Colbert - 6x29 - John Oliver, Cher, Jojo
2020-11-04 | The Late Show with Stephen Colbert - 6x30 - Shepard Smith, Leon Bridges & Lucky Daye
2020-11-05 | The Late Show with Stephen Colbert - 6x31 - Larry Wilmore, Laura Benanti
2020-11-03 | The Late Show with Stephen Colbert - Special 14 - The Late Show's Showtime Election Night Special 2020

:idea: Since people don't seem to enter episode information well in advance for this one, caching could be an issue, as FileBot will cache episode listings for half a week. This might be a problem especially if people only enter the episode information on the release date, possibly only after you've already tried processing the file.


:idea: You may want to consider processing files a few days after the release date as to make sure that someone has already entered the information that you will need:

Code: Select all

--file-filter "age > 3"

:idea: Alternatively, you can make your --filter more specific (e.g. only match episodes aired within the last ~1 day) if you're always processing files on release date. If you expect all your files to have a nice YYYY.MM.DD identifier then you might also get away with Strict Mode thus eliminating next-best-thing-type mismatches that are enabled via -non-strict.
:idea: Please read the FAQ and How to Request Help.
