Inaccurate Episode Matches

Great idea, but I'm having a major issue with the episode matching being inaccurate.

Leading me to wonder if my combination of icetv guide data and Oz setup stores the episode data somehow differently than you expect?

Have tried with several episodes of several series and no luck.

It looks as though it is trying to match the broadcast time with the episode name.


e.g. series "how i met your mother" file has metadata episode name & sub title = "false positive" which perfectly matches s06e12 on thetvdb

however the script gets series correcctly but id's episode as "s05e03- Robin 101"

Am i using it wrong? do i need to map fields somehow?




feel free to delete this post, l just realised i was using a really early build, i must have got from elsewhere, however now nothing works!

If possible, please copy/paste the log that the file generates when it runs. That will give me a good start at understanding what is happening.

Thanks for the reply Philip.
Its working fine now that i'm running the right version! i had picked up build 4020 from a forum somewhere wthout realising how old it was, but hey it led me here.

I did have an issue with the series m*a*s*h until i spotted the <change_char to=" " from="*"/> node in the config and substituted "*" for " "

its a really useful script, thanks for making it available for us all.
