We're aware the site is running really slow the last 24 hours and are trying to figure it out. It looks like it might be a combination of a couple things. Hopefully we'll have a temporary fix later today and a permanent fix this week. Sorry folks.

TheTVDB.com is having a small logo/slogan design contest for anyone that is interested:
Small prizes... nothing special, but your design/slogan would be visible to hundreds of thousands of visitors each month.

actually it looks like that, yes.
scraper settings takes ages to come up (set content dialog) and website is not responding.
also scraping does not work.

mark95: This is a problem at our end, not there's. You need to either refresh your shows or do a search and replace on your database file.

How is it a problem with XBMC? Their website doesn't work full stop...

Quote:One of the customers at that location turned up 9 blades last night and blew 2 circuits. They've been working since late last night trying to resolve the issue. The new circuit won't be installed until Monday. We'll know more in a bit.
You can follow the thread HERE

Correct, but jm is still right. That poster is using an outdated scrapers file that references images.thetvdb.com. Once our new server is up and running that won't be valid anymore, so he should still get the latest version.

Have you guys ever considered allowing scene release names to be added to episodes? Maybe like a separate field listing all known filenames?
This would totally negate the need for (sometimes) inaccurate scrapping, pattern matching etc.
Just a thought.

I don't think we want to be linked that closely with possible sources of infringing material...

Actually, we have. There are one of two methods that will handle scene releases better without us actually listing releases, since we're not interested in that.
1. File hashes. We may allow file hash lookups, so it would be an exact lookup of a specific file. This would work well for legitimate downloads as well (like those from iTunes). Wouldn't work nearly as well for self-recorded episodes.
2. Series AKA. If people add the scene directory name as the AKA for a series, it's very easy to do exact lookups. I have no problem with this since it has alternate legitimate uses, like giving an easy, unique alternate for file naming schemes.
On the new site, and it'll have to be handled by XBMC at that time as well (I'm sure they'd accept a patch).

Any ETA on the new TVDB?
