Thanks for the update. This works SO much better under Eden B2 than under Dharma. I was able to get my Hulu subscriptions in with no problems at all. I am running into an issue, though, getting content from Amazon in properly.
For example, I'm trying to bring in the show Lost. Under this subfolder:
Here is the pastebin of the log: http://pastebin.com/tArXZCPU
I tried again with this subfolder:
Next, I tried this subfolder:
I tried several other iterations to no avail. The closest I got was when it created the "season x" folders in the dropbox. Then it did have the correct streams, but since they weren't under the top folder "Lost" and the episodes were in folders, the scraping didn't work right. Is this something where I'm going to have to go manually edit the nfo or something? I sure hope not. Any help is appreciated. I'm sure I'm not the only one running into this with Amazon.

Does anyone mind giving me examples of how to set up some new search filters? What i'm basically looking to do is just scrape the "network" folders for all the shows from each network. I've done it successfully with Hulu, and now i'd like to do the same thing with the Free Cable and Amazon Prime addons, so i can plug that all together and basically make Virtual Cable TV. Unfortunately, my Regex-fu is weak, and i'm unable to cobble together working search filters for Amazon and Free Cable.
Could anyone post theirs if they have them working? Specifically, i'd like to do shows in amazon in HD if they're offered...right now it picks up the SD shows fine, but since amazon lists SD and HD as separate "seasons":
And the like. My current search filter is:
and in my drop folder i get:
Can anyone shed some light as to why the HD seasons are being detected as completely separate series? Ideally, i'd like to get a listing of every show on every network, but if SD and HD versions of a show are available, i'd like to only get the HD. I can provide log snippets if need be. Thanks again for all the help!

Seems that you have the same issue I do above. Hopefully someone has successfully created a filter that will work for amazon. I've pretty much given up

It's weird. If you're looking for HD at the moment, you seem to be out of luck, but you can use my filter above and add an <exclude> tag for [HD] and you'll get the episodes in SD just fine. It's not a perfect solution, but i can still watch shows from amazon, so it's better than nothing

AWESOME PLUGIN. Thank you very much. I'm only on day 2 of using it - my concern is upnp url's changing on restarts (which i do nightly), but it sounds like that was taken care of, so i'm optimistically thrilled with the richness this plugin adds to my library.
Question - the "archive" if not successfully scrapped option is fantastic. I'd like to use this on my local PVR folder as well. I see you have a SAGETV script that includes archive, but i use ForTheRecord with live tv integration in XBMC. Is there a way i can use this script or another to add un-successfully scrapped episodes to the tv show as a "special" episode?
Feature Request (?) - not sure if this would fall under this script or maybe a new one, but adding the ability to sync watched status and current play head with the third party services (specifically thinking of netflix) would be awesome. Until XBMC creates a googletv or android app/port, i'm continuing to use the netflix app on my tablet and tv while using xbmc on my main tv downstairs.
Once again, excellent script. Couldn't agree more with the post very early in this thread pointed at the XBMC team. The library is one of xbmc's strongest features. Limiting it to local media that successfully scrapes is a travesty. Adding streaming content and user generated files (without manually creating nfo files) is an absoute must. Great community work getting this feature created for the xbmc team.

-For watched statuses, if you want to sync with external sources, that would probably be a different add-on, but I like the idea. However, I am working on a way to mark the .strm files as watched when you are done watching. XBMC does not does this by default because it treats the .strm as a playlist instead of a single file.
-For the PVR integration. I am right in the middle of switching from SageTV to ForTheRecord, so I plan on doing exactly what you are requesting. For starters though, install the Guide Enricher for FTR, it adds the season/episode numbers to your program guide data. Then you can change the archiving format of the recordings to display them in a nice way that XBMC can scrape.
-For all the Amazon Primer's out there, I recently started playing around with the Prime Video addon as well, and I am going to put together some search filters and will post them here once I confirm they work.

Ryoga79 Wrote:The new version works amazingly! Not to mention it's getting easier and easier to use. Kudos!1 - This is very hard to do because it would be based on name-matching only and not on a specific id. I'd suggest you use the prefix/suffix/movieset options to tag your streaming shows, so you know if they are local or streaming when you pick one to play.
2 - Prefix/Suffix/MovieSets are working flawlessly for me. If they fail for, you, I'd need a debug log.
3 - Yes. Currently duplicates episodes from different sources are skipped only if they have the exact same file name. In the next update, they will also be skipped if thei SxxExx numbers match. This will prevent duplicates very well for episodes.
The subfolders are scanned in the order they appear in your Config.xml, so put your "best" ones first.
Also, in the next update, Amazon Prime scraping will work much better. (All of the [HD] stuff in the listing was messing the parser up).

Idea: Integrate this incredible app with Jason's also incredible Psuedo TV app
Basically giving you a cable guide with all this great content.

I have the guide enricher installed. Helped with "normal" primetime programs that didn't get set properly to start with (my initial epg data is being pulled from micro$oft's api). But i still have a problem with a few shows, namely on going game shows like Jeopardy. The guide enricher did adjust the sXXeXX data, but it doesn't match tvdb.com so xbmc fails to scrape.
Any update you get on this i would much appreciate and love to try out. It's probably the last piece of my library puzzle
