TVDB agent not working following library move

pearsonbpearsonb Posts: 8Members, Plex Pass Plex Pass

my TV library used to live on a Windows machine using TVDB as the agent. Over the weekend I moved my media on to a new server running Ubuntu. When I create the TV shows library if I set the agent to TVDB it says your changes could not be saved. However if I pick the local media server agent the library creates successfully. The problem with this is it doesn't download the cover art for each show, can anybody tell me what I might be doing wrong when trying to use TVDB?

    firewall/add aware blocking url with "banner" in it that thetvdb uses.

    Absolute Series Scanner (ASS): Seasons+Absolute mode series scanner managing subdirectories and AniDB type specials,with a logging off all files (skipped on top of root folder, then sorted one line per file with regex used and info, all series sorted alphabetically) and one with the filelist to reproduce the library on my end with dummy files. It also add all files and recognise specials pretty accurately.

    http AniDB Metadata Agent (HAMA): Some good info there, will have to re-write it at some point... Data folders are kinda mandatory... Huge libraries can fetch 10gb in space. If you have no poster but other metadata is showing, create "Plug-in Support/Data/com.plexapp.agents.hama/DataItems" agent folders as indicated in the readme on GitHub

    Impressed by the agent recognition rate? Consider donating few euros through Paypal: Absolute Series Scanner + HTTP AniDB Metadata Agent. (Donators: xnaas, Sven-7, Niegen, Vorador, Fratal, T. Mayville,  A. Estremera, KJKingJ, Blindsay, ...lacking space)
