I´m using the program since a longe time - its really great. Just have one question:

How long does it take for Rename My TV Series 2 to get episodes from TVDB? On the main page of TVDB the episode S14E15 of the german tv show

Notruf Hafenkante 

is still there, but in Rename My TV Series 2 it is not showing - there is only S14E14

Can anyone help?

Thanks

Hi Henkyy73,

Thank you for the compliment - glad to hear you like the application.

RMTV stores downloaded data in a database, to reduce the load on TheTVDB servers.

Obviously data can get "old", as you have noticed, so for that reason in settings you can set how "old" data is allowed to get (eg. "expires").

Look in "Settings" under 'Finding TV Shows". There is an option "Cached Episodes will expire in X days".

By default this is set to 7 days and after those 7 days RMTV will reload data from TheTVDB when you're accessing that particular TV Show.

You can set it to "always" expire by entering the value "0".
However, most TV  shows are weekly, and setting it to 0 will generated an undesired traffic load for TheTVDB.

Instead of changing this value, you can click on "Force refresh" under "Episodes" list (next to the "Settings" button).

I just tried it just to make sure (had to switch to German because the show data in English is super limited it seems) and I can see the entire Season 14 (20 episodes).

Hope this helps

Again me.

I changed yesterday some informations of the tv show CHEZ KROEMER for season 2.

I did all you said, changing to value "0" and force refresh - Rename shows only 2 episodes of season 2

https://www.thetvdb.com/series/chez-kroemer/seasons/official/2

What did I wrong?

Thanks :-)

Hi Henky73,

I just did a search and it now shows season 2 more complete (if that is what you meant).
You may have to click "Force Update" again - and maybe at that time TheTVDB had not pushed the new data through to their API (although I doubt they'd have 2 different databases).

That's weird ...

Did you try using the beta version? (read this post first)

Do you think I have to try the new beta?

Tried to install the beta but I alway get this message:

ERROR

Unable to create SQLite Database.

Closing Rename  My TV Series now.

I deinstalled the normal version first.

Are you using Windows, macOS or Linux?

On that note: did you remove or rename the old database?

The old database is stored here - just rename the directory to something like "Rename My TV Series.old".
When starting the application it should create a new directory with the needed files.

MacOS

~/Library/Application Support/Rename My TV Series

Linux

~/.config/Rename My TV Series

Windows

c:\Users\<username>\AppData\Local\Rename My TV Series.

Sorry - I totally overlooked your previous messages ... 

So you're on a Mac - me too (I actually develop the app on a Mac)

I´m using it on MacOS.

Tried to deinstall 2.0.10 with Clean My Mac and tried to rename the directory. Both didn´t help. I get the same ERROR when I try to install

RenameMyTVSeries-2.1.0-beta-macOS-64bit.dmg

Don´t know what I did wrong

Which version of macOS are you running?
And can you try this in Terminal and tell me what the output is?

sqlite3 -version

Right now I'm working on Catalina (10.15.3) and the sqlite statement shows me version "3.28.0".

I´m still working on MacOS Mojave.

Terminal says: 3.24.0 or do you need more information?
