Can't find the metadata for Sex&Drugs&Rock&Roll


I tried to use WDTVHubGen to get the data for Sex&Drugs&Rock&Roll. It couldn't find the show even though it is clearly in TheTVDB.com database. I even tried using the IMDB# tt3594982, to no avail. Please help!

Try using FILEBOT to rename the file


FileBot is the ultimate tool for organizing and renaming your movies, tv shows or anime, and music well as downloading subtitles and artwork. It's smart and just works.

Then wdtv should find it

"Try using FILEBOT to rename the file"

I'm sorry, I think you misunderstood. WDTVHG can find the file just fine. It's the database entry that it can't find.

The files are named with the following pattern: "Sex.and.Drugs.and.Rock.and.Roll.S0E0.*.mp4"

TVDB seems to be down has been intermittent since Saturday

Thanks to all that are trying to help! However, to be clear, again, it is NOT a file naming problem. Here is the list of files for which I am trying to obtain metadata:
Sex.and.Drugs.and.Rock.and.Roll.S01E01.Don't Wanna Die Anonymous.mp4
Sex.and.Drugs.and.Rock.and.Roll.S01E02.Clean Rockin Daddy.mp4
Sex.and.Drugs.and.Rock.and.Roll.S01E03.Lust for Life.mp4
Sex.and.Drugs.and.Rock.and.Roll.S01E04.What You Like Is In The Limo.mp4
Sex.and.Drugs.and.Rock.and.Roll.S01E05.Doctor Doctor.mp4
Sex.and.Drugs.and.Rock.and.Roll.S01E06.Tattoo You.mp4
Sex.and.Drugs.and.Rock.and.Roll.S01E08.Hard Out Here for a Pimp.mp4
Sex.and.Drugs.and.Rock.and.Roll.S01E09.Take My Picture by the Pool.mp4
Sex.and.Drugs.and.Rock.and.Roll.S01E10.Because We're Legion.mp4

Here is the listing in TheTVDB: http://thetvdb.com/index.php?tab=series&id=283345&lid=7

However, for some reason WDTVHG cannot find the database entry for the show (even if I manually search with the IMDB #). I'm practically certain it's because of all the &'s in the name; however, that's a bug and something the WDTVHG should handle.

Okay, I actually did finally get it to work. Yes, renaming all of the files from Sex.and.Drugs.and.Rock.and.Roll to Sex&Drugs&Rock&Roll did work. However, that's a clunky work around...

RodneyOakley wrote Jan 18, 2016 at 4:56 PM

The show on fx is actually called Sex&Drugs&Rock&Roll i have a feeling that wdtv strips characters such as the & sign but nor sure i am sure it removes . Though
I have my self had to re name files to their tvdb name to get them to work

JohnFran wrote Jan 18, 2016 at 5:20 PM

Agreed. However, my only beef with WDTVHG was, when I tried to manually retrieve the metadata it wouldn't work no matter what I typed in for the name or if I used the IMDB#.
