Eden - scraper no longer works using yyyy-mm-dd - mgk69 - 2012-03-07 01:08
No idea if anything can be done about this but I have noticed that since upgrading to Eden the TV scraper no longer correctly scrapes files I have in my library as [showname] yyyy-mm-dd - description.
So like Conan 2012-03-05 - Zac Efron.mp4
They don't show up in the library or under files any more either other than as a folder for the show with nothing in it.
I found it easier to rename these by date rather than trying to work out the series and episode number for each one - it used to work in Dharma, just not any more.

"or under files any more either".
That's your problem. Fix that first. A debug log will probably tell you whether the scanner sees them or not.

Working on my new program over in the suplimental tools section (hydraulic) I ran into this issue also what I've been doing is using a regex to seperate teh date from the show name, and then use that to look up season and episode information at tvdb, when a match is found I'm renaming the file to SxxExx format. then the scraper appears to find them just fine.
The relevant section of code I'm using is below. It's in C# but probably could be ported to any other language easily.

This suddenly works again - I don't know if I did anything or it just got over some glitch it had hit? I think I just did a library clean and then a rescan and it picked them up.
Thanks for the comments.
