TV banner is shown on website, but missing in API.

A place for developers to advertise their TheTVDB.com enabled app and get help from other developers with the API.

Show:

Code: Select all

https://www.thetvdb.com/series/the-hunting-2019
You can see it has a banner.

API request URL (searching by IMDD ID):

Code: Select all

https://api.thetvdb.com/search/series?imdbId=tt9690214
API response:

Code: Select all

{"data":[{"aliases":[],"banner":"","firstAired":"","id":366420,"network":"SBS (AU)","overview":"The Hunting is about two high school teachers who discover students are sharing nude photos of their underage friends and peers, and the consequence this has on the teens and their families. ","seriesName":"The Hunting","slug":"the-hunting","status":"Continuing"}]}
As you can see the banner is empty in API.

I have exactly the same problem since today. Confirmed field 'filename' is empty, also when testing using https://api.thetvdb.com/swagger#/

sample

Code: Select all

https://api.thetvdb.com/series/365722/images/query?keyType=poster
response body

Code: Select all

{
  "data": [
    {
      "id": 0,
      "keyType": "",
      "subKey": "",
      "fileName": "",
      "languageId": 0,
      "resolution": "",
      "ratingsInfo": {
        "average": 8.9,
        "count": 7
      },
      "thumbnail": "_cache/"
    },
    {
      "id": 0,
      "keyType": "",
      "subKey": "",
      "fileName": "",
      "languageId": 0,
      "resolution": "",
      "ratingsInfo": {

Yep, /series/75930/images/query?keyType=poster type requests are basically just empty scaffolding right now.

I have complained about the same issue here: https://forums.thetvdb.com/viewtopic.ph ... 88#p155488
I have also posted follow up comments.
No comment from anyone. Pervasive API issues/database issues/hosting issues after the rollback, and a "daily update" thread that isn't so daily at: https://forums.thetvdb.com/viewtopic.php?f=118&t=57706

Some transparency would be nice.
