I'm using Kodi and their scraper for TheTVDB. Recently there have been quite a few back and forth changes made to season 10 of Robot Chicken.
I am now finding that episode 12 onwards of the show isn't getting scraped correctly. My issue is that I get multiple episode 12 and 14 listed instead of the actual episode names correctly. Episode 12 & 13 are both identified as episode 12 and episode 14 & 15 are both identified as episode 14. I have tried removing and rescanning the series multiple times.

I created a forum topic at Kodi ( and devs there have looked into it and concluded it's an issue on the TheTVDB side - perhaps due to the multiple edits to the season.
Hoping someone can look into from this side.

Not entirely sure if I've posted this in the correct section.

To confirm the OP, over at Kodi we have looked at the issue and concluded the TVDB API is sending incorrect episode information. Seems that older, deleted episodes are being returned in the API along with the correct episodes.
