Hello Ivek,

Is there any separate script that can repair this?

Yes, now after several days of tests, there is a solution for the transmission of the list of seasons and episodes.

IMDB Movie (episodelist) (a) script adds a URL series address in the URL normal box. Script transfers the total number of episodes of a particular series in Seasons-Episodes memo custom field.

This is important because you will IMDB Movie (episodelist) script uploaded a list of 10 or less of seasons and episodes. However, if the existing list of seasons and episodes of higher than 10 seasons, then just download the last couple of seasons for certain series.

Example:

Stargate SG-1 series (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0118480/) has 10 seasons, the script will download a list of all 10 seasons.

NCIS: Naval Criminal Investigative Service (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0364845/) series has more than 10 seasons (13 seasons), the script will download of seasons from 5 of the season ahead. There is a solution for the other 4 season from the list by script does not transferred.

The solution is as follows:

Such a url addres " http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0364845/ " add this one part of the url addres " episodes?season=1 ". Now the url addres had such an appearance: " http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0364845/episodes?season=1 " and the script will download a list of episodes for season 1 series. Repeat for all missing the season series.

List of missing seasons and episodes it will not be visible until PVD program again will be re-start. When you do so, the list of missing seasons and episodes become visible.

Another thing, you first use IMDB Movie (episodelist) (a) script then only IMDB Movie (episodelist) script.

IMDB Movie (episodelist) (a) script and IMDB Movie (episodelist) script is attached.

Hello Ivek. I tried both of the scripts, but no episodes are added. I tried with "American Crime Story (2016)" http://www.imdb.com/title/tt2788432/
There are 2 seasons. Season 1 has 10 episodes. The first 4 episodes where added manually (see attached photo). I click on the title and run the script (a). Close, then open PVD. Nothing is added in the left column. Same thing happens with the second script.

What I am doing wrong?

If you are already any season or single episode earlier add manually or with the IMDB Movie (episodelist) script, it is necessary to remove the now and then again modernize with IMDB Movie (episodelist) script.

Yes it is, but I apologize if I soon forgot to add what is now added up here. These four episodes added manually, simply remove it and then update now with that I emphasize with this IMDB Movie (episodelist) script. It should now properly transferred seasons and episodes.

The same can be done for all the other series, where something added manually, mainly, therefore, where the IMDB Movie (episodelist) script will automatically add the url address for each episode.

This script downloads only this information (see attached image).
IMDB Movie (episodelist) (a) script adds a URL series address in the URL normal box. Script transfers the total number of episodes of a particular series in Seasons-Episodes memo custom field.

In this script now added a year in series, add in a normal year field.

Tried today the two scripts on the "11.22.63 (2016)" Mini series http://www.imdb.com/title/tt2879552/  which is a new one.

The (a) script, imported nothing, but the second script imported the Episodes (8  ep.) Titles properly.

Thank you Ivek !

Thanks, Ivek.  I got the scripts to work for "Arthur of the Britons" with two seasons of 12 episodes each.

I haven't updated scripts manually in a long time.  It did take me a while to figure out where to put the scripts. Once I located the correct PVD folder all went well.  I ran IMDB Movie (episodelist) (a) script first and then IMDB Movie (episodelist) script.  I'm running PVD 1.0.2.7.

Itself an obvious answer.

True, the same way I recommend the use of scripts for other users.

Yeah, now it is clear that we do not have confirmation Episode box, so you do not delegate anything. The only thing still remains, it is to go to Settings > Plugins > IMDB Movie Script (episodelist) and look Episodes field and confirm it.  Then it should work.

Hey, great!

This was solution for an issue I referred to HERE (http://www.videodb.info/forum_en/index.php/topic,4134.msg21077.html#msg21077).

Unfortunately, it is partial. For some reason, seasons 1 & 2 will not be imported with these two scripts over Proxo, no matter what. Importing starts from season 3 each time, with either of these scripts. May I kindly ask you to try to reproduce the problem by importing Modern Family series into your database?

Thank you in advance.

EDIT: I found a workaround, but it would be nice to set the script to do that automatically.

Workaround, for those interested in:
1. Edit Series URL field and substitute series link with season link, for example http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1442437/episodes?season=1.
2. Set PVD -> Preferences -> Internet connection -> Use proxy server to 127.0.0.1 at port 80, meaning through Proxo.
3. Set overwrite options for the selected plugin - IMDb Movi Script (episodelist): Click ALL then manually uncheck all fields, except field Episodes which has to remain checked with check mark.
4. Import data - episode list for season 1 will be imported.
5. Edit Series URL field, delete season URL and bring back series IMDb URL, for example http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1442437/
6. Uncheck proxy in Internet connection
7. Now you can select all episodes in a season and with a single click to import data for all episodes with IMDB[EN](HTTPS) script, without Proxo.

Post by: Ivek23 on May 02, 2020, 04:59:22 pm
I just thought, given what has been described, that the series has over 10 seasons. In this case, IMDB Movie (episodelist) script will never download seasons 1 & 2. If possible, however, the source code on this site does not allow it to be a download of all 11 seasons of the series.

Thanks for the explanation

IMDB Movie (episodelist) (a) script adds a URL series address in the URL normal box.

Doesn't regular IMDB_ [EN] [HTTPS] V 1.4.1.3 script already do this?

Anyway, the second and the last difference as I understand is that (a) script adds total number of episodes in a custom memo field.

Is it the problem this piece of code to include in regular IMDB Movie (episodelist) script v 0.1.1.6, so we'd have only one script for episodes then, or we have to have both episodes script?

In the PVD program folder, there is a Scripts folder where you copy the IMDB Movie (episodelist) script and the IMDB Movie (episodelist) script. You also need Proxomitron to make your scripts work. The Personal Video Database 1.0.2.7 MOD will also work for you if the use of a proxy server is embedded in Internet connection PVD settings.

Hold on to what was mentioned. It also adds the starting year of the series (for example: NCIS 2003). You also immediately see if the series has more than 10 seasons.

Is it the problem this piece of code to include in regular IMDB Movie (episodelist) script v 0.1.1.6, so we'd have only one script for episodes then, or we have to have both episodes script?

It is possible, but the IMDB Movie (episodelist) (a) script more displays results when searching for results. The IMDB Movie (episodelist) script displays only a few titles in the results. Titles are filtered.
