Need help

Postby [email protected] » Tue Jun 19, 2018 3:18 am

So I'm a bit new to tvdb and I'm getting the hang of things for the most part, but having a bit of trouble getting a show to populate in kodi...

It is listed in the TVDB ...

Castles: Britain's Fortified History

But obviously windows won't let me name a folder of file with " : " I'm guessing this is what's causing the problem?

I've tried many combinations but nothing seems to work... Do I have to make some kind of nfo file? or is there a trick that deals with characters in show titles.

Regards, Mike.

Just zis guy, you know?

Generally, dropping the colon may work, but the preferred method is to associate the series with the colon in Kodi (Manage, Rename Series or Refresh (IIRC)).
