Well I found the problem, it turns out I had included the 64bit sqllite dll with the 32bit version. I've uploaded a new version to the project site

This is great news. I have a bug to report that has been in EMM since the beginning.

When XBMC imports a TV show that has been scraped by another application it expects the following in the tvshow.nfo:

<episodeguide>
<url cache="73388.xml">http://www.thetvdb.com/api/1D62F2F90030C444/series/73388/all/en.zip</url>
</episodeguide>

If it doesn't find it, the show/episodes are still imported into the library. However if you add another episode without a corresponding nfo XBMC ignores it and it doesn't appear in your library. Essentially once you initially scrape a series with EMM that folder is no longer scraped for new content by XBMC.

The fix would be to include the episodeguide xml statement when creating the tvshow.nfo.

I've uploaded a new version to the project site. Its not a huge release, but it does fix a few things.

Changelog for 1.3.0.1
- Fixed issues with DLL's not being included, or the wrong ones being included
- Remove rogue's scraper, the default scraper for Ember now works properly with TMDB and IMDB. I included some tweaks so that in theory scraping for TMDB should work now much more reliably.
- Fixed the versions throughout the app, now should be consistent with how I intent to implement the version scheme.
- Some minor optimization in the base code

Going forward I'm not sure how often I'm going to make new releases, I do plan to come up with a release plan and use the tracking on the project site, but I'm not going to promise dates, mostly because I'm busy with lots of other things.

The other thing is becoming familiar with the code, its always a task to pick up someone else's code and dive in, it will take me a while to get my head around everything, but I'm a fast learner and as you can see I've already implemented a few fixes.

Bare with me, and I'm sure you will be rewarded. Big Grin

Ok, I'll see what I can do. Can you add this to the tracker on the project site, I want a central location for issues and feature requests, and I hate to say the forum isn't the best place, plus its easier to keep track using a project tracking system like redmine.

Thanks

I'd like to, but I registered and still can't log in. Then tried the lost password route but never got an email. Sad

Hmmm, I have to figure out why the email isn't working, thanks for letting me know

Well email on the project site should be working now, configuration issue.

I would check to see if the alternative title stuff already works, from what I was reading the XML scrapers had that issue, but since I updated the native scraper, that might actually be working. I scraped a movie this morning and noticed it had titles for both so give it a try and see what happens.

Just a heads up. Don't know if you are also using TMDB but the new API will only support JSON so you might need to get ready to change it.

Always read the XBMC online-manual, FAQ and search the forums before posting.
Do NOT e-mail Team-XBMC members asking for support. Read/follow the forum rules.
For troubleshooting and bug reporting, make sure you read this first

In the rename section is there anyway I can get TS titles renamed to include TS in their titles etc? Like the way it currently does DVD and Bluray?

Good to know, I've not delved a lot into the API yet, just fixing up what I can. I'll have to do some more research and see what I need to do.
Thanks

Nah, in theory should be transparent to the end user. Certainly will be a good reason for me to really look into the scrapers and the api's they use to get the information.
