Well there are new mythbusters on TV and there is new episodes mess. Someone started season 2018 whilst we just started with 2017. I removed the episodes from 2018 and added them to 2017. Can an admin please remove season 2018 ?

....and here we go, the situation I warned against when the admins decided to go for years as season numbers.

And as things are, you just destroyed a correct episode list. If you have to delete episodes (which neither you nor I have rights to do, and for good reason) you should always ask on the forums instead of just mangle the show...

How is this complicated? What year is it? USE THAT.

Well, sorry apparently I made a wrong judgement call, I presumed that a season that started in 2017 would continue its numbering also when episodes aired in 2018. This until a new season started in 2018. This seems not to be the case.

But to abuse someone of crack usage who does his own little thing with art and series around this database is a little bit over the edge and does not motivate at all.

Yeah, sorry about that, I'm a bit cranky when I don't sleep, you deserve better than that.
Still, I figured you of all people knew to not nuke listings from high orbit, so I was more than a little irritated.

The OFFICIAL MythBusters website on Discovery.com lists all seasons by number NOT years, the current season being 20. Should not theTVDB respect the official listing scheme?

Long discussion, basically this series was a broadcast mess, so the tvdb admins had to find a solution. Just read the entire discussion you are replying to. Decisions were made and sorted by year it is !

There seems to be a problem with Season 02/2014 and Season 06/2008

When using normal episode order, everything seems to be ok.

When using DVD order, it is messed up.
I deleted whole show from kodi and did full scan with DVD order.
Directory contains files with both old and new seasons (1-16 and 2003-2015). I get almost everything with new season numbers expect:
Season 2, Episodes 1, 3-13 are found
Season 2004, Episodes 5-9, 11-20 are missing
I have 2-3 missing episodes so few episodes in that list might be ok.

Season 6, Episode 1 is found
Season 2008, Episode 9 is missing

From web I can not see that DVD info is attached to those episodes.
Maybe someone with proper rights can take a look and see if everything is in order.
Or maybe kodi is doing something strange - but kodi should not find anything unless tvdb returns that particular season/episode info.
I deleted everything again and when using DVD order kodi found those 02/06 season episodes again (and did not when DVD order was off). So I guess it is not kodis fault.

I guess the best solution would be to do full DVD season/episode numbering on all episodes so there is no need to manually sort and rename many-many files when you had library set up long ago with old numbering - now you want to add few missing episodes and essentially you are screwed because of the new numbering. DVD order would save you.
Or delete DVD information from those few episodes. So you do not get mixed data from old and new numbering scheme.
