I found something in the metadata search that I think is a problem that I want to help fix.
If the show name has any punctuation, it is stripped and replaced by spaces and that messes up the query to tvdb
Example: try "Grey's Anatomy" It won't work. And dont even get me starteed about "$#*! My Dad Says" :)
I found the particular source code that I want to change, but I want to coordinate with you on it.
I tried contacting you directly, but got no response.
You are responding to other folks here, si I am trying again to contact you.
Sorry. I did respond, but your email bounced. This is a better way to communicate anyway, so thanks for the post.
Right, the technique I use to ensure valid URL characters is to replace any non-ascii character with a space. And I can imagine this wreaking havoc with some of the shows you mentioned.
Assuming you can checkout the source from the svn repo, build, make changes etc., then when you have a fix you want to submit simply create a patch by doing 'svn diff' and saving the result to a file. The best way to submit the patch is to open a bug in the tracker and attach it to there. I will look at it and if it seems good, I will include it in the source.
Thanks. I really appreciate the help!
Weird. My accountr settings look good. Oh well. I have made contact.
I plan to tinker with the tvdb API a bit to see what it will accept before deciding which way to jump.
