    Please try copying the patch files over the top of the fresh install as the Year in the series.xml will not work without the patch.

    I did that. Still not work. This support can be closed. There is a work around, not preferred of course, but it works.

    Okay, even the work around is not working. For example, I have the TV Show The Middle that started in 2009. The file creation date is in 2020. When maintaining the file, it gives me The Castles of the Middle Ages TV show that apparently started in 2020. When I change the metadata of the file itself to the year 2009, I get a TV Show called The Middle Ages. So, I tried an xml file with series name as The Middle and year as 2009. Still getting the TV Show The Middle Ages.

    This is a huge ridiculous problem. When searching for a tv show called the middle (using Mezzmo's get online video metadata), the first show is Malcolm in the Middle. That would at least make more sense to show up as the tv show. But no, I get some obscure show about the middle ages.

    There is something seriously wrong with this setup. Do you know of a program that is free that will allow me to bulk change the metadata of a file? I use the regular file properties in Windows to change the year. But, if a program allowed me to change the series name such that Mezzmo recognized that change. And then I could maintain files in the file and get it to find the correct show, that would be okay. Of course, this didn't happen when I first put the show in Mezzmo. So, something is messed up with either Mezzmo on my computer (even though I did a fresh install a few months back) or there is an issue with the servers communicating with my computer.

    You could try using Tiny Media Manager . to see if you get better results from the metadata lookup. Putting the series name and year in an xml file in the same folder as the video should get the correct metadata but I also get 'The Middle Ages' when looking up the series using:

    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" ?>
    <Series>
    <language>en</language>
    <SeriesName>The Middle</SeriesName>
    <banner>metadata/01.jpg</banner>
    <Overview>Series Description</Overview>
    <Year>2009</Year>
    <imdb>tt1442464</imdb>
    </Series>

    I looked this one up on tvdb.com and this series has an alternate name, Middle. I made a series.xml file with this:

    <series>
    <seriesname>Middle</seriesname>
    </series>

    and Mezzmo discovered it properly. This is a tdvdb.com issue not a Mezzmo issue.


    Thanks,

    Jeff

    That works for this particular series. I will have to investigate with the other situations. We'll see what happens.

    TVDB has some quality issues. I am happy to help if you get stuck on any. My approach to TV series is like so:

    • Import one episode of a series into Mezzmo.
    • Ensure artwork and metadata are proper.
    • If not fix with get metadata properties
    • Once correct export the metadata.
    • Create series xml, poster.jpg, folder.jpg and fanart.jpg from exported metadata files
    • Import remaining episodes



    This has proven to be 100% for me. I have a few hundred TV series. It's a one time thing for each new series I add.

    Thanks,

    Jeff

    I have almost 14,000 TV episodes in my Mezzmo library with an HDHorerun OTA PVR system that is always recording new episodes. I had to find a way to automate this with high accuracy. Happy to help.
