Added MC2XML support
With MC2XML support came a fix for random MV/SH data at TheTvDb.com. So, this is even better. Upgrade, and make sure you delete ALL working files/database leave only: *.tracking, doover.sh and showtranslations.
MC2XML is grouped with SchedulesDirect, Zap2it, Tribune, and Tivo.

how about the EDL stuff , you never said wwhether that actually worked for you. anyone else care to comment on this??
Im sort of wary of going back to this, cause it doesnt add generic episodes in some way or the other, even with made up season and ep numbers..go for everything going in season 99 for all i care and have random made up episodes in season 99..
thing is, by the time i modded confluence to show the data already in my mythbackend (ok I cant take credit for that as all i did was use a download viewsfilemode.xml), and modded fonts.xml to show me a readable font from 20 feet away, I've got pretty much everything but the pretty scraped art. I can delete shows, and they really delete, I can watch a show, and it really skips commercials, and best of all, I can see all of my generic episodes..I have kids, kids love spongebob, so as much as id love to ignore generics like you, thats not what gets me my few hours of "peace and quiet" every day
edit ps..i do gety SOME art as mythbackend shows me a snippet of the nuv preview file it makes .its quite beautiful.starting to think all i needed all along was for someone to actually make a script with mythtv in mind

well, yeah, kids love spongebob, but with spongebob set to a -20 recording preference, over the last month I've recorded about 40 episodes of sponge bob. At one time I had 70. Between that, word girl and a few others, there's no need to record the generics, and after 70 episodes they've forgotten the first one anyways That's beside the point though.
I'm still pushing the generic episode addition into XBMC. If ANYONE has a good idea of how to import a show, please tell me. I have no idea on how to manually import a show without episode data.
If I can manually edit the mysql and throw the file location in there, then I'd be more then happy to do so. I don't know the XBMC DB at all.

cant you just give it fake/random episode numbers and just keep it in season 99?

i tried out the script in depth tonight..it would seem that the script no longer sends the command to update the xbox library, thoough i cannot attribute it solely to that as I just started out with a fresh xbmc, but i did set the port on both ends
anyone else have this issue?

Did you enable allow xbmc to be controlled by other computers under settings/network/services?

Every output in this program has been either arbitrary, or can be found in the XBMC online manual. There is a proper way to do it. It's found here:http://wiki.xbmc.org/?title=Import_-_Export_Library#TV_Shows
But it didn't work when I tried it. You'll notice that all the "extra" database information you can find in the logs is the same stuff in that NFO file.
I can try again sometime soon, but seriously, I'm not going to go making my own standards of show importation. That's a hack and I'm trying to stay away from hacks. I want standards only.

If you seriously want to add uncatagorized files to the library
1.disable database access in mythicalLibrarian.sh
2.run a replace #/ with /
3.run a replace "" with "the"
4.make doover.sh executable
7.make doover.sh executable again
this will force a fuzzy logic match.
