I'm trying to "scan for new content" on my "prison break" share. No matter what scraper I try it doesn't seem to pick up S03E01. The filename is in the exact same format as the S02 files. The log file shows:

CODE

It seems to forget to lookup season 3. I've copied & pasted the url for tv.com for season 2 & even tried season 3, bith return episode lists.

I've tried reducing the size of the cache in system settings for internet.

Any ideas?
I will load a full debug log later, if it helps.

I had set the content to use the other scrapers, but even after setting it & restarting XBMC the log showed that it was still using the tv.com scraper instead. Weird.

Anywho. I went to TV Show Information on the Prison Break Folder & clicked Refresh. This then asked about refreshing all the info for all episodes. I click yes & it's finally picked up the S03E01 file & updated all the other info for the other files too using TheTVDB.com scraper.

Suppose I'll go through & update all the other tv shows to use theTVDB.com too.
Thanks

Why not remove the other two TV scrapers from XBMC so people won't try to use them?

because then nobody will fix them for sure.

for a point release your suggestion makes sense, not for our development svn

Okay... so... don't use the tv.com scraper (that's why it doesn't work at my series)...
Which one is maintained and therefore recommended to use?
