Thank you for your reply.
I am aware of this procedure, but I would like to know if anyone else has encountered this issue, since I suppose that it is not limited to my system and has to do with the api.
I would provide the log file at the earliest convenience.
I also realized it this morning, but since I last run the scraper a few days ago, I did not know for sure if it was something that occurred today or not. It seems that it emerged today, according to the latest posts in TheMovieDB - Movie scraper.
Is this problem affecting both the themoviedb movie scrapers: the old (metadata.themoviedb.org-5.2.6) and the new (metadata.themoviedb.org.python-1.3.3)?
Is the solution as simple as using the python one? I am still using the “metadata.themoviedb.org-5.2.6” on kodi 18.9 (osmc).
I looked through the code for the Python version of the scraper just to refresh my memory (I helped with a little of the API related stuff), and it shouldn’t be affected by this issue. It gets a list of all the images and then does it’s own sorting and filtering. I’m pretty sure the python version of the TMDb TV show scraper should also be fine (I wrote most of that one). The issue seems to be specific to the older XML based scrapers.
The transition to the Python scrapers is not mandatory for Kodi 19, but it is highly recommended. The python scrapers are the default scrapers for Kodi 19, so if you move to Kodi 19 and then add a new source, it will use the Python scrapers unless you change it. The XML scrapers will probably be removed all together for Kodi 20. And just for clarity and disclosure, while I am a member of the Kodi development team, decisions like that are made by the team, so I’m reading the tea leaves and giving you my personal take on the XML scrapers for Kodi 20.
I still have this issue on my Vero 4K+ and can’t figure out how to fix this.
Newly scraped shows do not have a poster.
The new python scraper is limited to 1.1.34 on Leia and will not be updated anymore
Think I found the solution. I was still using “The TMDB Movie scraper” and I need to use “The TMDB Movie scraper for TV Shows”
