Noob scraper questions

Mon Sep 24, 2018 10:33 pm

Hi guys! I have been trying to get the sportsdb setup on my kodi system for the past few days now, and i'm not having much luck really.

I have regressed to the point now where i have downloaded the example file structure, added this onto my hard-drive and scanned it using Tsdb, but i cannot get it to pull-in any of the artwork.
It does pull-in the description for the event, just no artwork at all.

I have installed the sportsdb addon via the repo. Is there any other addons/scripts required in-order to pull-in the artwork?

I have seen a few posts which mention that i should include the round number within the file nMe, but i cant see the round numbers included within any of the filenames of the example file structure which i downloaded, so not sure if that is still the case?

I am truly stumped guys, so if anyone could possibly help at all i would be eternally grateful! Thanks so much! :)

Hey yes round number is important because Kodi uses it as the episode number, I believe its required by that scraper.

You can add a round number by editing the event on this website. I would advise starting with a single event that you know has all the data included for testing purposes. I seem to remember the artwork is the event "thumb" as well, but of course you could easily change this in the scraper code to something else.

I've not seen the developer for the scraper for a few years now, but it did work the last time I tried it!

Artwork hasn't worked for me in quite a while either - been just manually adding it for now. Not just you.

I don't see any reason why it would have changed, but I don't know the scraper code too much.

Certainly the "Episode thumb" in Kodi is equivalent to the "Event Thumb" here which is strThumb on the event lookup api.

I really should test this sometime :)

OK I sat down and finally tested the Kodi Scraper again, images were indeed broken so I fixed them :)

See the main Kodi thread for the new download.
