Incorrect Season Matching

Post by enigmab17 » 28 Jun 2020, 14:40

Hey all

I've been having an issue with a particular episode that is being matched to a completely different season and I can't seem to figure out why.
Through the UI, specifically selecting the show seems to match correctly however via the command prompt below, not so much.

Filebot Version: 4.9.1
OS: Windows Server 2019 (not sure if that would effect this particular issue)

Original filename:

Code: Select all

Marvel's Spider-Man - 03x03.mkv
Executed Filebot Command:

Code: Select all

filebot.exe -rename "Marvel's Spider-Man - 03x03.mkv" --db TheTVDB --format "{n} - {s.pad(2)}x{e00} - {t}" --lang en --log all --q "Spider-Man (2017)"
Output log of command:

Code: Select all

Rename episodes using [TheTVDB] with [Airdate Order]
Fetching episode data for [Marvel's Spider-Man]
[MOVE] from [Marvel's Spider-Man - 03x03.mkv] to [Marvel's Spider-Man - 01x03 - Osborn Academy.mkv]
Processed 1 files
Expected result:

Code: Select all

Marvel's Spider-Man - 03x03 - Vengeance of Venom.mkv
Actual result:

Code: Select all

Marvel's Spider-Man - 01x03 - Osborn Academy.mkv
Only thing I can think of is the fuzzy matching because of the "non-strict" flag is somehow mis-matching but without it the command fails altogether.

I would appreciate any assistance/advice anyone might have! :)
Thanks & Hope you're all safe.

Also thanks to FileBot creators for this tool!

This reply here should apply to your use case as well:
viewtopic.php?f=8&t=11930#p51281


Generally works now, but 3x03 may not yet have existed at the time of processing in your case:

Code: Select all

$ filebot -rename *.mkv --db TheTVDB -non-strict --action TEST --log INFO
[TEST] from [Marvel's Spider-Man - 03x03.mkv] to [Marvel's Spider-Man - 3x03 - Vengeance of Venom.mkv]

Yep, I had even looked at that but didn't think it applied as I saw that the episode was up on the TheTvDB, totally forgot about the caching aspect.
Apologies for the duplicate issue thread, but confirmed that clearing the cache worked.

filebot -list would be my first check just to see what FileBot sees.

Episode data for less popular shows is typically added very quickly, once people notice the episode is missing, but that usually only happens after the episode has aired. --filter "age < 7" can be very effective if you only ever process newly aired episodes.
