    I just added a number of series, new and additional seasons to existing ones, and only had trouble with 1 out of about 12. It didn't detect that the Animaniacs season was from the new 2020 reboot instead of the original and I had to fix that. Everything else added to existing series or created new ones fine.

    Which shows specifically are having problems?

    Splitting votes against two suggestions isn't going to get the idea any further along.

    Yes it's a nightmare, but there is no other option. TMDB is what's being used now, it's not going to change from the discussions I've had, so register an account and start contributing to improve it.

    How are you doing it in 6 clicks? I have a Sagas module on the home page, can get there in 1 basically.

    I think the best way to address this would be to have a landing page for each TV show. So when you click on a show, instead of just getting season posters you get a brief summary of the show and details about it that you can modify just like a movie page when you go into it. That way you should have Edit ability to modify the description of the show, change the title etc.

    As long as the display name doesn't mess with the actual DB name so that future episodes/seasons added land in the right spot, this would be cool.

    I'm not even sure Kodi does this as I haven't used it much, but it would be a nice way to manage TV shows.

    Interesting feedback about adding new content to an existing series, that'll be annoying. I'll see if I can throw in a new season of something in the next week and see if I can replicate. Would suggest logging that one via Contact Us as a bug rather than feedback here though.

    As for the completeness or structure of TMDB, that's something you have to address with them, not Zappiti.

    It's not a bug, TVDB has been removed as they changed their API and it now costs too much for Zappiti to use it.

    Check the changelog for confirmation TVDB is gone - https://www.zappiti.com/changelog

    "Due to the change of TheTVDB terms of use, series can no longer be analyzed with TheTVDB database."

    Your option now is to work on improving TMDB by joining the site and contributing until it becomes as good as TVDB, and hope they don't change their API prices either and leave us stranded again moving to yet another site...

    One wonders why we're not building up Zappiti DB, but that's a discussion for another day I guess.

    Would be nice but I don't see it happening any time soon. Best bet is something like TVmaze is added, but I don't think TVDB will ever be back unless their API cost model is updated again.

    I doubt the DS hardware is incompatible, it's probably DSM 7 that's the problem.

    Already suggested, use the search feature to add votes to existing. Also, not going to happen until new hardware models are released. See https://zappiti.uservoice.com/forums/310888-zappiti-english/suggestions/42604267-support-for-newer-smb-versions

    How can a player as old as the current models support a much newer NAS?

    New hardware is already in the pipeline, though not sure which chipsets will be used.

    I have no problem scanning documentaries as movies or TV shows, and then going to Categories where the Documentary category already exists. You just need to make sure TV documentaries are in the TV folder and film documentaries are in the Movie folder. That's it.

    You can also right click on the home screen, "Add a Module" and select Documentary. You can then re-order them so that Movies, TV & Documentary all appear side by side however you like.

    Similar was requested many years ago and knocked back. They didn't want to provide additional filters at a movie or tv level. Would be nice to see this tucked under Movies and TV rather than at a whole of library level though.

    According to comments on Facebook, current players cannot be upgraded due to the Realtek chipset. Only when they release next gen players will they have more modern SMB support. See posts below for comments in-line from Zappiti:

    The way the DB is protected I doubt they would approve this.

    So set your Showcase to be Categories then?

    This makes no sense.

    You can add as many TV or Movie folders as you want, just go to the Folders screen in Settings. I have multiple for Movies setup because they are in different locations.

    I don't understand how existing functionality gets so many votes?

    There used to be a movie wall style layout, agree it would be nice to have that back.

    Xavier: If you're using TVDB naming, what's painful about the process (other than manually correcting what it gets wrong)? It sounds infinitely more time consuming to have to manually create and point to each file, add images for every episode, season, etc.

    Robert: Do you need any additional help since the previous thread here - https://zappiti.uservoice.com/forums/310888-zappiti-english/suggestions/42301495-new-user-best-practices ?

    You want the names to match what https://thetvdb.com/ has at the moment, i.e. "The Office" will give you the original UK series and "The Office (US)" will give you the US version. Search for the proper name and use brackets where possible to clarify the year, even if it's not officially in the name of the show on TVDB.

    When I scan new content I have it in "G:\TV\Modern Family\Season 9\Modern.Family.S09E01.Episode.Title.mkv" and it scans the right folder. I don't like repeating the series name twice though, so once the scan & identification is done, I rename the file so the path is just "G:\TV\Modern Family\Season 9\S09E01 - Episode Title.mkv" and then re-scan to ensure the file is re-linked to the new name. Once you scan and identify something properly, you can rename the files to something else, but if you need to redo something later that could be an issue. I have a bulk file naming application called Advanced Rename and I use that often to add/remove text to files to help with bulk updates and use filebot to rename after Zappiti is done with the scans.

    My folder structure for the TV share is:

    Series Name\Season 1\episode files
    Series Name\Season 2\episode files

    So yes you can create subfolders, just keep it clean like that and make sure the filename when identifying has series name and SxxExx information to help identify the content initially. I found when I first went to Version 4 that grouping things alphabetically was a stupid idea, as it thought the W folder was a show. Make sure the first level folders under TV share is the name of the TV series. Subfolders for seasons are fine, but you'll still see all episodes in the season when you select it in the application, which means you might have 2-3 screens to scroll through episodes. As you watch stuff you can filter Hide Seen and that list gets shorter with each viewing until you finish the series.

    Sounds like a bug, you should use the Contact Support page rather than post a suggestion like this.

    There's also this similar suggestion which may be worth putting your votes to.

    Good call. I believe identification was much better in earlier versions and has gotten more difficult. You could quickly and easily do things in bulk on ZMC and they seemed to be better grouped.

    Would love to see identification improved, but I can't toss any votes to this as I haven't got any left.
