Ripley's Believe It Or Not - 2019 vs. 2000 vs...

Postby Jeff_Haas » Tue Jun 11, 2019 3:58 pm

Here's an interesting one...

There is a new version of Ripley's Believe It Or Not, on the Travel Channel, hosted by Bruce Campbell. It just started a week or so ago. We have artwork, posters, etc. in the DB thanks to someone.

But, because it has the same name as the previous one that was on TBS in 2000, some of the artwork for the earlier series (with Dean Cain) shows up for this new version. So far I haven't seen artwork from the 1982 version (with Jack Palance!) or the kiddie cartoon from Fox.

Not sure how to resolve this. Any ideas?

Additional info: If you look up the detailed description of an episode, it's correct - Travel Channel, current poster with Bruce Campbell, etc.

What's showing up in some spots is the Fan Art from the old TBS version.

I forgot to mention that this is happening in Sage TV.

It appears to have the correct artwork on the show page now as far as I can tell. I don't see any artwork from older versions of the show.

Here's a little clarification...there are multiple series with the same name, see this search:
https://www.thetvdb.com/search?q=ripley%27s&l=en

Apparently Sage doesn't take into account the year on the end of the name, so what Sage is doing is pulling the art from Ripley's Believe It or Not! (2000):

So if I understand correctly, this is a Sage problem? Maybe you can bring this up in their forums:

You're right, after I originally posted this, I realized it was a Sage TV plugin issue, not an issue with the TVDB. I've raised it on the Sage forums but due to the age of the plugin, it may not get fixed. At this point I have manually deleted the incorrect artwork and downloaded the right images.

Thanks for following up.
