Error: Kodi not building the TV Shows database with TVDB
Postby bpdlinuxer » Thu May 24, 2018 12:25 pm

Hi Guys,

I have a Directory with all Game of Thrones episodes (I'm starting to watch now) and I'm having problem getting kodi to build the database using TVDB. I have the files in a SMB/CIFS path with this structure:

--Game Of Thrones S01
---Game Of Thrones S01E01.mkv
---Game Of Thrones S01E02.mkv
--Game Of Thrones S02
---Game Of Thrones S02E01.mkv
---Game Of Thrones S02E02.mkv

In the logs I can see the TVDB API is rejecting Kodi in the request.

This is part of the error:ERROR: CCurlFile::Open failed with code 404 for https://api.thetvdb.com/search/series?na...anguage=en


Let me know if you need something else to detect the problem.

Thanks in advance.

I believe it is SMB causing you the issues. Maybe give Kodi 18 a shot see if it works better. I believe Krypton is having issues with SMB1 or 2, not sure not. I read that somewhere. Leia is playing nicer with SMB.
