Just used your post processing script. I haven't been actually able to download anything till now to try that part out, can't really download here atm. I did get one episode download though. Could you make the renaming structure configurable? Just as an option to use SxEE or SSEE, since my whole collection is SSEE, and you do support that when adding the files in SSEE format. (EDIT: noticed this is already a ticket, I assume that is what #61 is referring to?)
Also I looked at the nfo and noticed that the plot is blank. The plot information is on thetvdb so for some reason sick beard isn't getting the info into the nfo.
Just looked a bit deeper. I don't know when sick beard scraps thetvdb. I assume when a show is added thetvdb is scraped, but by the time the show is downloaded there is usually more info and it is usually more accurate.
What I noticed is, if I look in the details of the show for that episode in sick beard there is no plot. The plot is on thetvdb though. I assume when sick beard scraped thetvdb the info was not available. But the info is now there. As for the time line, show was added to my list of shows yesterday, the show aired today and was downloaded to day, about 2mins after the download was complete I checked thetvdb for the plot and it was there.
The info for the nfo should be scraped after the download is complete to give a better chance for the plot and thumbnail to be on thetvdb.
Also if you could and an option to disable the creation on the nfo and tbn file that would be helpful. I might still want XBMC to do the scraping, one advantage to that is it may give more time for thetvdb to have all the info and thumbnail added.
Could you also add support to keep the downloaded nfo? Have the original/downloaded .nfo extension renamed to .info and have the file renamed to the same as the episode and move it with the video file to the appropriate folder. I like to hang onto these as they sometimes contain useful info.
I just saw the new way you have shows being added the other day and like how you have done it. Great job with all the improvement, keep up the great work!
Yeah, that's what #61 is for.
For the file with the blank plot, does the plot show up on that episode in Sick Beard and just not the NFO? Or neither place? If the plot in Sick Beard is blank then it must have been blank at the time of the original scrape and never got changed for some reason. Again, something that should be resolved when I redo the update code. Currently SB scrapes TVDB when a show is made and then it updates the show every 6 hrs (and every time you start it). The problem is that it currently tries to use TVDB's "changed since" feature which seems to really suck, so I think I am going to have to revert to force-updating every episode.
There already is that option, it's called "Create Metadata" in the General config.
Out of curiosity, what info could you possible want out of the original NFO?
