Build 1869 Problems

Feb 14, 2009 at 7:39 AM

I have been using you TV Meta Data Finder for a couple of weeks in conjuntion with Video Browser with pretty good success.

I was using Build 1833 and did not have any real issues with it.  Today I noticed you had released build 1869 so I thought I would install the new version.

I noticed that the colour of the log window had changed to blue ... personally I preferred it the way it was but it is a minor thing.

I store my TV Shows in a directory structure following your recommendations.  Series Name \ Season #

For example

Burn Notice
   |_ Season 1
   |_ Season 2

I ensure that the file names contain S0#E0# in the file name.  Up until this version this has been working very well.

Build 1869 is not detecting new files and as a result it is not renaming the files to the specified naming convention.

I dropped a new file called Burn.Notice.S02E13.avi in the Season 2 folder.

Here is the log file results.

14/02/2009 5:45:51 PM:  Getting a listing of all files *.avi, *.mkv, *.mp4, *.mpg, *.mpeg, *.divx, *.ogm, and *.wmv in T:\Burn Notice
14/02/2009 5:45:51 PM:  Starting Process... web site does have information for this episode but tvmetadatafinder does not appear to be working.  No metadata for the episode was downloaded, no images created and the file was not renamed.

The same thing has happened for a couple of Gary Unmarried episodes as well.

I don't know if other people are having this issue.  I have run this version on multiple PC and it behaved the same way on them all.

Hope this easy to fix.

I've also got this problem, since the new version, it appears to ignore files now and not rename or download data for them. I'm running windows vista ultimate if that helps.

Also, just like to say - great program so far! One cool feature i can think of is if it could generate a list of "missing" episodes somewhere :)

Edit: I'm running Vista 64bit version if that makes a different

Okay, thanks for the feedback.  I have rolled back the old version to the default, and will continue to put this version into testing.
I have tested everything here on my side, and it worked great, however I just want to compare setups if you don't mind.

Simmark, What is your T: Drive?  Is it a Windows Home Server, Nas (what type?)
Flain, What kind of device do you use to store your tv shows?  Is it a network storage, or local to your computer?

I recently got two dual bay NAS devices (DNS-321).  It works fine on that. 

I will continue to do more testing on this build and see what comes out of it.

The T:\ drive maps to a Windows 2003 Server file share \\ServerName\tv_shows$

I have tried running this version on the server itself ... it behaved the same way.

Is there an option to generate a more verbose log file? May help track down where in the code the error is occurring.

Thanks for your efforts.

Bill, i'm running it on my Z:\ drive which is a share on a windows home server box (which is based on windows server 2003). The drive maps to a folder ie '\\server\videos\'.
