#8853 closed defect (wontfix)

TV series image metadata is downloaded but not inserted into the database

Reported by: yianniv Owned by:
Priority: minor Milestone: unknown
Component: MythTV - General Version: Master Head
Severity: medium Keywords:
Cc: Ticket locked: no


For TV episodes, metadata is downloaded, and I can see the episode plot, but the images (season, banner, screenshot) are downloaded but no images appear on screen. I checked and the entries are blank in the database (phpMyAdmin).

Films have no problem.

This is an issue with TheTVDb-- they are having major problems and it is breaking Myth's TV series behavior. Not much we can do about it right now.

Sorry to insist, please do not lock the ticket, I can continue in the lists if you tell me to, but the images do get downloaded. They are in the the download directory, but are not inserted in the db. I can browse them with dolphin. If you say that it's TVDB's fault I will accept it, (I've seen veeeery long delays even in their web site) it's just that I wanted to make this clear: the insertion part isn't done.

The issue *is* a TVDB issue. The Plex project has launched a new release that is more or less acting as a Denial of Service attack-- the issue is that *some* of the images queued for a given item are getting downloaded, but then TVDB disappears before the entire set get downloaded, and so the completion event never gets sent back to MythVideo?. The simple way to work around this while TVDB is having these issues is to just hit "W" on the item and whatever has been downloaded so far will be found and inserted before it hits TVDB again. then, as the situation improves, you can go back and pick up the missing artwork.
