mythweb, imdb form and tmdb number

Post by trumee » Tue Oct 22, 2019 3:26 am

I would like to specify 'tmdb' number manually to metadata parser as the frontend is not able to pick up correctly. Mythweb has the a form entry called 'imdb' where i have tried to give the tmdb number in integer form. Unfortunately, that doesnt seem to work as i get a "1 request pending" but nothing happens.

What is the correct way to specify the tmdb number via mythweb or the frontend?

I've never updated the metadata from mythweb interface.. but in mythfrontend the numbers require a prefix.

The prefix for:-
- movies is "tmdb3.py_"
- tv shows is "ttvdb.py_"
(do not include the double quotes)
