Troubles with some data

Dec 6, 2008 at 6:24 PM
There are a couple of series with reported incomplete data. For example My Own Worst Enemy cannot read the data for episode 7, just reports invalid episode. Extreme Makeover Home does the same with the latest episode.

I know the information exists at least in the Web interface (http://www.thetvdb.com/?tab=episode&seriesid=82122&seasonid=35887&id=411897&lid=7) not sure if the API is replying though.

No need to appologise, as long as I know, it's no biggie, that fixed it btw. I thought it was strange tht the only request's going out to the web services were for images, and not the show data ;)

Meant to say, I don't spose you've looked into how Win7 is looking for the data about shows have you?  The thumb's work for the folders, but episode info and pic don't. I know it's not what the tool was originaly written for, but it would be ace for it to have support in it for Win7's video section.

No I'm on about the Video Library (pics and video) as it now seems to have the ability to show metadata (at least in the interface). I'm not sure if that's only supported on certain media types (WMV etc) or if it will read metafiles of some sort. I suppose until we get a hold of the SDK we might struggle to work it out, may fire up resmon and see what it's looking for.
