Try turning off xbmc notifications:
Let me know if that helps.

The last release fixed some problems with substitutions. However, that version is limited to Linux. Hopefully the next release will fix those issues you encountered and work on Windows.

Wow, I'm away for a week and HUGE changes happen to the Script!! Great work Cliffe, loving some of the updates, especially the Automatic Image Grabbing.
I have a question though;
When the xbmc-web-server argument is set up, should my password be part of the variable?
my sorttv.conf contains;
and I see nothing happening to XBMC when the script runs. I have also tried SortTV with:
Both the script and XBMC are running on the same Ubuntu machine and the Script does not show any errors or record errors to the SortTV.log. Also my web-server is definitely running on port 8080, I am running the AWX interface and able to use it on my Laptop.
Am I missing something?

Make sure you have "allow control of xbmc via HTTP" turned on in xbmc's settings. Test that the network is setup correctly, by opening a web browser (on the system running SortTV) and open this url:
You should see a webpage with the message "Ok". And a test message should display in xbmc. If not, check your xbmc and firewall settings.
If you have set a password then include it in the sorttv.conf (as you describe) eg:
You can also include this in the test url:

I am having a hard time with the test string.
Two and a Half Men - Give Me Your Thumb.ts
Using fixtitle() it strips all the space which I don't want.
Using just pureshowtitle it has Two and a Half Men<space>
Using google to search for remove all tailing spaces, I now have a headache. :-)
I can't get a single regex I try to work. Any ideas?

CoinTos Wrote:Hey cliffe,
Please just use fixtitle() on both of the strings you are comparing. Then do a simple match:
That way "Two.and.a.halfmen" (or any other likely version) would match "Two and a Half Men", also it won't be fussy about the way the episode title is written.
Update: by the way there is an example of removing trailing whitespace in remdot()

XBMC has "allow control of xbmc via HTTP" enabled and when I use the above URL on another computer on the same network (changing user and pass, and localhost to correct IP address) I get the Correct "Test Test" Pop Up. But SortTV still does not start XBMC Library Update.
SortTV has the correct info:
I could not open a browser and run above URL on the same machine as XBMC as I use a Minimal XBMC Set-Up and have no Browser on the box.
Any further advice?
Found out I could use PHP to request a URL through the commandline so I used
and I got the required test test PopUp, So I know that xbmc is set up correctly and there is no reason why a localhost request to port 8080 should not work, yet XBMC still will not update on using SortTV.
