Watcher Script getting stuck in a loop

Post by greynation » 14 Feb 2013, 05:24

I have been running the "watcher"script and it will not rename the show "Once Upon a Time" because it gets too many results from theTVBD. So to move things along I added the -non-strict argument. This made the script use one of the results but now the script is looping over and over. Below is a log of the message I received about 20-30 times before stopping the script.

Any Suggestions? :?:

C:\Users\TV\Documents\Filebot Scripts>filebot -script fn:watcher -extract -renam
e "E:\TV Shows\New Shows" --format "{n} {s00e00} {t}" --db TheTVDB -non-strict

Obviously with watcher and housekeeping you MUST specify --output so things get moved to a folder that is not watched.
:idea: Please read the FAQ and How to Request Help.

I realized this shortly after the post. I also immediately realized that --output CANNOT be the same directory you are looking in. You get the same results.
To fix the problem I am having uTorrent place the files in a new "downloads" directory and moving to my above mentioned "..\New Shows" Directory.

Thanks for the reply Red
