Example... Battlestar Galactica Season 1 Ep 1 "33" description from thetvdb.com is:
"In the wake of the Cylon sneak attack, the ragtag fleet of human survivors is forced to play a deadly game of cat-and-mouse with their pursuers. Every 33 minutes, they make a jump to a new location. And every 33 minutes, the Cylons manage to find them. The pilots are on the brink of exhaustion, relying on artificial stimulants to keep fighting, and the civilians are beginning to doubt the leadership of Commander Adama and President Roslin."
In the RTVHD interface the episode is identified correctly, but the description is in what I assume to be Spanish and from what little I can make out easily for the wrong episode.
Show was recorded from BBC America in HD using WMC and HD Homerun Prime with Comcast Xfinity
How exactly do you have the file name for the show in question?
When I look up Battlestar Galactica (The version that contains the episode that you mentioned), I see TVDB uses the same id for all of the languages. If your file format is "Battlestar Galatica (2003).1x01", that it's probably matching on the first entry (language Cestina) & bringing in that entry. If the format is like I mentioned, I wonder if you were to change it to be "Battlestar Galactica (2003) - S1E1 - 33", if it would detect right.
My question is, does the program default to the first record it finds, or if it defaults to bringing in the english version. If the first record, then i'm wondering if it would help to add a desired language & secondary language, which the end user can select, which the program would try & find the shows that have that language. The secondary could be used if the first language was unavailable.
On recorded WTV files it should always pull the metadata from the WTV file itself. Can you check what is in the "Program description" field if you right-click on WTV file go to properties and then the Details tab?
MJT that resolved the description issues, but when I imported it back in I noticed that the viewing status was maintained which indicates that you are maintaining that info in the database and not clearing it when an episode is deleted which means your database is getting cluttered and possibly contributing to some of the other issues that have been creeping up...
Can you tell me where that is either here or in an e-mail if you don't want people mucking about in it. I use multiple machines to watch the same files and want to sync the playstate if possible. And would love to take a crack at automating this even if it is just a one off for my own purposes.
