[Build 3 - rev 343] TV Show thumbnails not downloading

Postby fnwc » Wed Nov 18, 2009 11:10 am

Don't seem to be downloading, although the covers/fanart are coming down fine. I checked thetvdb.com for the particular episodes, and they all do have tbn's available.

if you open the download manager, is it attempting to download those images and failing or just not picking up on them at all?

Actually, the download manager says 404 on all the failures, but I noticed that the thumbs aren't being downloaded (or don't seem to be).

In this sample "It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia" s01e02, the thumb is http://thetvdb.com/banners/episodes/75805/296311.jpg

You'll notice that it isn't the failed download list, though: Image

I suspect this is an issue with thetvdb's api and the recent problems they ran into.

Here's what we do for shows
We search for the show, or use the tvdbid that is in the show meta data.
We take that show ID and grab a zip file that contains all the XML information for the show
We parse out those files, and add them to the local cache database for thetvdb data.
Images are added to the download list to be downloaded.

Since the server is returning a 404 error, the file doesn't exist on the server.

This could mean a few different things.
1) The file was on there server, and it was removed, and the UMM database was not updated correctly.
-- this is unlikely as the data in the cache database is not that old
2) The file is listed in the API results (xml files) but never existed.
--this is more likely
3) I've mixed up something in the cache database

Here's what I would like for you to try
Rename the cache database: umm\db\thetvdb.db to something else (example: .old)
Clean out the cached/temp tvdb data: umm\cache\tvdb

Open the client test form, "rescan" tv shows and then "Download Latest Info.."

This will narrow down the issue.

That worked. I could see the sqlite db rebuilding.

A few (very) minor bugs:

1. Clicking on Scrape TV show without a show selected throws an exception
2. Using the keyboard arrows to move up/down the episode list doesn't update the episode details, thumbs, etc
3. Is there any way to be able to show the image dimensions before you choose it as fanart?

I did what you says and rescraped all tvshows, some of the missing info/episode thumbs came back correctly.
I still have a few problems though, like with White collar which is tvdb 108611 i opened up the en.xml file in the cache and all the info is there but for some reason it
is not passed in the library, specificaly episodes 4 and 5 don't have either overview nor episode thumbnail.

1. Clicking on Scrape TV show without a show selected throws an exception
- fixed in svn core branch 402
2. Using the keyboard arrows to move up/down the episode list doesn't update the episode details, thumbs, etc
- fixed in svn core branch 402, key press event added (press any key, other then up/down, to activate (space bar for example))
3. Is there any way to be able to show the image dimensions before you choose it as fanart?
- Please add a trac ticket for this one: This will be part of the display when we switch to using the remoteapi calls that the finished app will use

4. I still have a few problems though, like with White collar which is tvdb 108611 i opened up the en.xml file in the cache and all the info is there but for some reason it is not passed in the library, specificaly episodes 4 and 5 don't have either overview nor episode thumbnail.
- fixed in svn core branch 402, there was an error that was unrelated that caused it to not save the info to the database (try/catch block for errors was too generic)
