Hi guys,

is there possible to get info about Series by specifying IMDB ID ? I can not find method for it, but in results is this info. I tried to specify also 'tt0290978' as search string, but no success.

Thanks.

yes! use it well.

thetvdb.com/api/GetSeriesByRemoteID.php?imdbid=tt0290978
the output is similar at GetSeries.php.

the wiki documentation is missing and there was a topic but apparently has been deleted.

regards!

I adapted the code from getSeries to getSeriesForRemoteID.
if you see the code is very simple.
Maybe if you change the query and use episode table and write the episode output like http://www.thetvdb.com/wiki/index.php/A ... ode_Record

thanks, I understand, imdb is working for series, which is nice. But I am looking for the way to get info from imdb id of episode, for example how I get info for s01e01 of http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0636289/ ? I have just imdb id of that episode.

When calling GetSeriesByRemoteID I get empty response. You mention "getSeriesForRemoteID" so I tried also this one, but it seems as mistake. So, if it is possible to get info for episode by imdbid of that episode, let me know please.

There is nothing in the api for getting episodes by imdb at this time. All the features of the api are documented in the wiki.
Please don't PM me. Post in the forums instead unless there is a very good reason for a PM or I won't respond.
