Re: Tool to scrape TV Show Information for the WDTV Live Hub

Hi,

 

I would love to try this out, but the Sendspace.com site is down. Is there an alternate DL link?

Re: Tool to scrape TV Show Information for the WDTV Live Hub

Will this work with DVD ISO files?  I have my TV shows ripped as ISO and named Show Name - S1D1, etc.

Re: Tool to scrape TV Show Information for the WDTV Live Hub

How simple would it be to add a file re-namer to it?

 

Like 99% of the torrents i download have long annoying filenames with random upper/lowercasing

like

 

Breaking.Bad.s01E02.720p.English.2008.mystupidnamehere.x264.mkv

 

and then i have to go in and rename them all, make the s01e01 all Upprecasing cuz the hub is stupid about what case the letters are in so it has to be S01E01 to match the XML's

 

How simple would it be to just auto rename all the video files to the 'Base Filename" that the user will enter anyway, and it automatically writes the S01E01 to all the jpgs and xml's.. any way u could add an option to rename all the video files to match the xml's so that the user doens't have to do this seperately? have it make all the jpgs, xmls and rename the video files to match all with one click of the 'season' button? possible leave a box to checkmark if you want it to rename or not?

 

I'm just throwin ideas i think up when using this thing cuz i use it alot, so every little thing i run into and think oh itd be cool if i could just do this, i figger i'd post up here. Hope i aint annoyin ya or nothing haha, thing works fine as it is, just tryin to help out and maybe toss an idea you hadn't thought of at ya

No, this package won't work that way.... and I have no intentions of doing that right now...  It'd have to be smart enough to know which episodes are on which disk, and that is EXTREMELY challenging because, for any given TV series, there might be more than one DVD release that was authored differently, and the TV Database doesn't allow for that.

 

 

... but what I did as a workaround to that issue was create Symbolic Links for each EPISODE on the DVD to the ISO itself.

 

So my directory looks like this:

 

 

lrwxrwxrwx 2 root root 39 Dec 25 21:41 JAG.S01E01.iso -> /share/TV Shows/JAG/Season 1/Disk 1.iso
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 39 Dec 25 21:41 JAG.S01E02.iso -> /share/TV Shows/JAG/Season 1/Disk 1.iso
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 39 Dec 25 21:41 JAG.S01E03.iso -> /share/TV Shows/JAG/Season 1/Disk 1.iso
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 39 Dec 25 21:41 JAG.S01E04.iso -> /share/TV Shows/JAG/Season 1/Disk 1.iso
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 39 Dec 25 21:41 JAG.S01E05.iso -> /share/TV Shows/JAG/Season 1/Disk 2.iso
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 39 Dec 25 21:41 JAG.S01E06.iso -> /share/TV Shows/JAG/Season 1/Disk 2.iso
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 39 Dec 25 21:41 JAG.S01E07.iso -> /share/TV Shows/JAG/Season 1/Disk 2.iso
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 39 Dec 25 21:41 JAG.S01E08.iso -> /share/TV Shows/JAG/Season 1/Disk 2.iso
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 39 Dec 25 21:41 JAG.S01E09.iso -> /share/TV Shows/JAG/Season 1/Disk 3.iso
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 39 Dec 25 21:41 JAG.S01E10.iso -> /share/TV Shows/JAG/Season 1/Disk 3.iso
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 39 Dec 25 21:41 JAG.S01E11.iso -> /share/TV Shows/JAG/Season 1/Disk 3.iso
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 39 Dec 25 21:41 JAG.S01E12.iso -> /share/TV Shows/JAG/Season 1/Disk 3.iso
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 39 Dec 25 21:41 JAG.S01E13.iso -> /share/TV Shows/JAG/Season 1/Disk 4.iso
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 39 Dec 25 21:41 JAG.S01E14.iso -> /share/TV Shows/JAG/Season 1/Disk 4.iso
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 39 Dec 25 21:41 JAG.S01E15.iso -> /share/TV Shows/JAG/Season 1/Disk 4.iso
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 39 Dec 25 21:41 JAG.S01E16.iso -> /share/TV Shows/JAG/Season 1/Disk 4.iso
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 39 Dec 25 21:41 JAG.S01E17.iso -> /share/TV Shows/JAG/Season 1/Disk 5.iso
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 39 Dec 25 21:41 JAG.S01E18.iso -> /share/TV Shows/JAG/Season 1/Disk 5.iso
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 39 Dec 25 21:41 JAG.S01E19.iso -> /share/TV Shows/JAG/Season 1/Disk 5.iso
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 39 Dec 25 21:41 JAG.S01E20.iso -> /share/TV Shows/JAG/Season 1/Disk 5.iso
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 39 Dec 25 21:41 JAG.S01E21.iso -> /share/TV Shows/JAG/Season 1/Disk 6.iso
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 39 Dec 25 21:41 JAG.S01E22.iso -> /share/TV Shows/JAG/Season 1/Disk 6.iso

 So note how four episodes (1 through 4) all point to the same ISO.    

 

Works perfectly; and SymLinks take very little space.

Re: Tool to scrape TV Show Information for the WDTV Live Hub

Just tried the newest version and its awesome!!!!

 

I did get an error though on 2 different seasons. When i tried pulling info for South Park and for Saturday Night Live, i received the following error:

 

"An error has been encountered while trying to download the Artwork Information: Index was outside the bounds of the array."

 

 

South Park has 14 seasons and SNL has like 35 or so.... maybe that is the issue.
