So I have been using the 2.4.9 Sept 9 beta successfully for a few months now and everything has been working well with exception that sometimes MCEBuddy downloads(?) empty series poster artwork and I have to replace the 0k jpg with the proper one from TheTVDB manually.
However, everything else was working.
Now after installing the final 2.4.9 x64 build of MCEBuddy last night, none of my files are being updated with the program metadata – ie; no metadata inside mkv files, no posters, episode titles aren’t added, etc.
If my origin episode is titled, The Flash s01e01 - Pilot.mkv the output from MCEBuddy the output is s01e01 - - Pilot.mkv. It adds a hyphen to the output thinking that the first hyphen was part of the name and not a separator.
alternatively, other files are creating new series folders with the series name and episode
\Television Series\The Flash s05e08\Season\se00 -.mkv
I didn’t notice this issue until this evening when I saw odd appearences show up in my Plex TV collection. There were only about a dozen episodes processed since the update, but every one was incorrect.
Since my each episode goes through 2 stages of MCEBuddy conversion before they get to my collection, and only the original wtv files are preserved, I had a bunch of re-encoding and converting to do again but that was simply a matter of clearing my history in MCEBuddy and placing my wtv files back in the Rec TV folder.
However, I would like to keep my MCEBuddy software up to date and use the most current version.
Does this problem sound familiar to anyone?
As I said, my wtv files go through two passes through MCEBuddy
Pass 1 = MKV Unprocessed with Comskip. This places the commercial free episode into my folder for HW conversion using A’s Video Converter (AMD Chipset)
Pass 2 = Also MKV Unprocessed w/o Comskip. This takes the transcoded file, adds back the missing series metadata, renames the file and places it in my TV series folder(s).
Logs? I’m sorry to say that the logs all got deleted when I uninstalled 2.4.9 and replaced it with the Sept build.
System Windows 10 x64
Firewall has MCEBuddy exceptions and even tried a conversion the Firewall disabled.
I was eager to try the newest version because of the whole Plex ‘unknown language’ issue! Yikes that is so much more annoying now that Plex automatically goes online to find subtitles which never match my recordings or are no more than SPAM.
