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.

in the link below, which is detailed for series with more than 10 seasons.

http://www.videodb.info/forum_en/index.php/topic,4044.msg19493.html#msg19493

This is also useful for other users.

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.

Oh, thnaks. You are right. Even if I did read, it was 4 years ago and I'd for sure forgot it. I just rarely have series in my database. Well, it is important that there is workaround at least. Not meany series last for more than 10 seasons anyway.
Thank you for your devoted work!

IMDB Movie (episodelist) (a) script

IMDB Movie (episodelist) script
VERSION:      0.1.1.6
DATE:      02/05/2020


I fixed the IMDB Movie (episodelist) (a) script and the IMDB Movie (episodelist) script, which now works with Proxomitron. A detailed description for use can be found at these links.

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

Hello Ivek. Can you please explain what's the difference between these two scripts? What one can do what another can't? I'm trying to get the largest possible set of data, but I am lost in a "forest" of scripts. Also, I would use your answer for "How To" messages HERE

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 has 10 seasons, the script will download a list of all 10 seasons.

NCIS: Naval Criminal Investigative Service 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.

I want to try the fix but I don't remember how to update the script.  It has been several years since I had to do it.  What files do I search for on my computer?

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?

Thank you for your great work, Ivek

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.

   If Pos(' (TV Episode)',Title) < 1 then
      AddSearchResult(Title,'','',URL,'');

Thank you for your great work, Ivek

Thank you very much.
