    MP-TVSeries focuses on managing the user's TV Series library with minimal user interaction, allowing for a more user friendly and ease of use experience.

    The MP-TVSeries plugin will scan your hard drive (including network and removable drives) for video files, it then analyzes them by their path structures to determine if they are TV Shows. If the file(s) are recognized then the plugin will go online and retrieve information about them. You can then browse, manage and play your episodes from inside MediaPortal in a nice graphical layout.

    The information it retrieves is coming from theTVDB.com which allows any user to add and update information. The plug-in will automatically update any information so should for instance a series description change, this will automatically update for you. Please go there and support zsori (author and admin) by adding data and uploading artwork. Remember, without this database none of this would be possible. All fields available there are/will be supported.

    • Recommended Requirements: MediaPortal 1.2.0 (Alpha)
    • Minimum Requirements: MediaPortal 1.1.0 RC3

    Show Spoiler

    • Fixed trakt.tv manual synchronize from configuration not working after entering username/password. Needed to close and re-open for changes to take affect.
    • Fixed series original name being cleared and looked up again after each update scan if not using English for Online Language.
    • Fixed series original name not being set if there was no english translation online. This could result in error to find subtitles as series name would be empty. Also fixes the issue where online lookup would be done everytime Original name was required.
    • Updated Subtitle Downloader library to v2.3.0.


    TVSeries v2.6.7 - v2.6.8 Maintenance Release Change Log
    Show Spoiler

    • Added Synchronization of your library including watched state to trakt.tv. Synchronization can be manually run from configuration or have the plugin handle this automatically in GUI. Toggling watched states from GUI will also be reflected online but you can only set something unwatched if it has not been scrobbled online. Removal of series/episode is not yet supported but is available via API.
    • Added option to Ignore series from being Scrobbled/Synchronized on trakt.tv.
    • Added ability to map ACTION_PREV_PICTURE and ACTION_NEXT_PICTURE to remote control button or keyboard button. When action is recieved, it will cycle the series/season artwork. This is a shortcut to invoking the context menu and selecting Cycle Artwork.
    • Fixed 'Mark All as Watched' option applying watched state to episodes that were in database but not visible on screen. Will now respect 'Show Local Files Only' setting, also will check that episode has aired, ignoring episodes with future air date.
    • Fixed theTVDB.com Series ID not being sent to trakt.tv when episode was scrobbled. This was a minor issue as we were sending correct original english title as well.
    • Fixed trakt.tv play count not incrementing after 1st watch if episode did not play to 100%.
    • Removed the trakt.tv user API key from configuration as it was un-needed, we can re-use the developer key.

    TVSeries v2.6.1 - v2.6.2 Maintenance Release Change Log
    Show Spoiler

    • Issue 426: Added Find\Filter button to Parsing Wizard to execute filtering when ready rather than immediate filtering when typing.
    • Issue 490: Retrieve online languages on a separate background thread when loading configuration so UI does not lockup.
    • Issue N/A: Encode series name before doing lookup on API.
    • Issue 494: Fixed 'User Rating Prompt' not being able to be disabled from GUI if no account id has been defined.
    • Issue 493: Fixed case where files on mapped share that were added to database before 2.6.1 were not being removed when files no longer exist during local scan.
    • Issue 333: Ability to UnHide episodes, seasons and series from GUI. Will use 'selectedColor' of skin list control property to identify hidden episodes. New Options menu item in GUI 'Show Hidden Items' will allow you to toggle hidden episodes from view, this property is shared with the one currently used in Configuration.
    • Issue 214: In-line sorting of specials were still being shown in episode views when Season 0/Specials season was set to Hidden (This was because the individual episodes were not hidden as well). Setting a season to hidden/unhidden will now recursively set the property for each episode as well now. Users with current specials hidden and episodes not hidden will have to do a toggle manually to fix that up.
    • Issue N/A: Added 'Ignore on Scan' option to context menu in the configuration details tab, removed from property grid. 'Ignore on Scan', stops updates on a particular series.
    • Issue N/A: When setting series as Hidden, also set 'Ignore on Scan' on. When Un-Hiding series set 'Ignore on Scan' off.
    • Issue 478: Episode Count for Season is not updated in season list facade when there is hidden episodes from view. Count will be based on what is seen like with 'Show Local Files' setting.

    • Issue 485: Fixed facade colour turning to remote colour when doing a local scan.
    • Issue 488: Added 'Skip' to the Manual Series Lookup dialog. You could only press ESC or BACK previously which may not be obvious to user, having both entries 'Skip' and 'Skip / Never Ask Again' is much clearer.
    • Issue N/A: Renamed 'Approved' to 'Approve' in series match dialog. Fixed small alignment issue in configuration->import tab.
    • Issue 486: Updated Spanish Translation (thx joarreba!)
    • Issue 483: Fixed manual import not being executed immediately when initial import is still delayed.
    • Issue N/A: Some cleanup of the Debug logging.

    • Issue 481: Automatically add required Parsing fields in Step 1 of Import Wizard 'Series Name', 'Season ID' and 'Episode ID'. Removed the Add Columns link when nothing supported to add plus minor UI changes.
    • Issue N/A: Added small delay (20 secs) before starting first File Scan when 'Scan remote shares is enabled', this will help for both CPU usage on start-up (which directly affects other plugin background tasks and also enough time for NICs to have initialized...this can help avoid a unnecessary Add Run).
    • Issue 460: Really fixed SubCentral not being available to enable/disable from configuration if launched from Installer. Forgot to wrap the subcentral path in quotes before parsed to PluginConfigLoader.
    • Issue 477: Fixed 'Insert Disk Message' not spanning multiple lines in Dialog.
    • Issue 476: Fix unhandled exception when exiting back from Series Panel in Import Wizard if there was unfinished edits.

    • Issue 436: Fixed 'Aired' order missing from available orders in Import Wizard.
    • Issue 472: Fixed issue where importer tried to match episodes that no longer exist on disk.

    • Issue 439: Fixed series search being executed in Import Wizard if user didnt enter in a custom search string. This would result in no match found since no valid series had been entered.

    • Issue 463: Fixed issue when deleting an episode that has no online-data also deleted other episodes with no-online data.

    • Issue 349: Removed the Subtitle complete dialog that appeared after successful download of subtitle.

    TVSeries v2.6 Release Highlights

    trakt.tv:
    trakt helps keep a record of what TV shows you are watching. Based on your favorites, trakt recommends additional shows you'll enjoy!:

    • Sends your episode play state online e.g. Currently Watching or Last Played. Builds up library online automatically.

    • Synchronizes you library including watched states online.

    Note: more features will be supported in the future as the API evolves e.g. view friends profiles in GUI etc.

    Import Process:
    Improved Import Process in configuration:

    • Importing in configuration has had a major overhaul, its now a wizard based process.


    • Users can change the local file information before import begins in the wizard e.g. edit the episode number or season number if tvseries does not recognise it.


    • No more annoying popup dialogs awaiting series approval or episode order approval. This is now done as part of the wizard.

    • Wizard also allows Local File to Online Episode Matching, e.g. Aired, DVD Order, Title matching or users can manually match an episode from the list.


    • Improved feedback of Import Process, users can see a breakdown of the entire import procedure instead of a single progress bar.


    • Improved Default Regular Expression, so now even more files are automatically recognized. Click Reset in 'Regular Expression' page in configuration if upgrading.


    • Improved DVD Ordering such that it uses the Aired Order if DVD values are not set online.


    • Forcing a new online match for a series online will now always prompt to choose series.


    • Users can now change the 'Local File to Online Matching Method' for a series from the GUI in the Action Menu. This allows your files to be re-matched against different ordering such as DVD Order.


    • Users can now sort the episode view by DVD Ordering or Aired Ordering.

    Note: Due to changes above, users whom already have episodes imported by DVD order need to delete these series from database and re-import.

    User Edits:
    User modifications on database now persist:

    • You can now edit a field in the database via the Details screen in configuration and have its data persist. i.e. it will not be overwritten when an online update is run. For instance you can modify the Genres or a Series Title to your preference.


    • Changes done to fields in database are highlighted with a different colour in configuration.


    • To restore the default data for a field, simply delete the contents and it will automatically restore.

    Play Behaviour:
    Pressing 'Play' button on a series now has a whole range of play options:

    • Configuration 'General' tab, allows user to modify the behaviour of the 'Play' button when a series is selected. User can set to play the first unwatched episode, random episode, latest episode etc.


    • User can also configure to display a menu of choices when 'Play' is pressed.

    New Episodes Indicator:
    New Episodes for a series can easily be identified by user in banner views:

    • Configuration allows user to display a 'New' image icon on a banner/poster in 'WideBanners' and 'Filmstrip' layouts.


    • Behaviour of image can either be changed from 'Recently Added Episodes' or 'Unwatched Episodes'. This can be changed in the 'General' tab in configuration. Option can also be disabled


    • New Skin Settings for skinner to control the position of the image on a thumbnail.


    • If setting is enabled, but skin does not support it. A text style image is overlayed on banner/poster.

    Note: see Blue3Wide for reference settings and image.

    Subtitle Central Support:
    Support for SubCentral has been added to TVSeries:

    • SubCentral for TVSeries can be enabled in the 'Extras' tab in configuration.

    Note: the SubCentral plugin must be installed manually. See SubCentral plugin for MediaPortal for more information.

    Video Play and OSD Images:
    New Image support for OSD and custom Skin Properties on Play:

    • Skinner can now change the image pushed to the skin in OSD. This can be configured in TVSeries Skin Settings. Series Poster, Season Poster, Episode Image or even a custom image can be displayed.


    • New 'Play' properties can be created in Skin Settings e.g. skinner can create a property to display 'ClearArt' as seen in some XBMC skins on the OSD.

    Note: see Blue3Wide for reference settings

    General / Misc Changes:


    • New option to display full filename in dialog when choosing subtitle to download.


    • Updated MediaInfo support to include new fields, better support/detection for HD codecs. It's recommended users Update MediaInfo using the link in the 'Details' tab in configuration. Skinners may need to be aware of some possible changes to some fields.


    • Fixed issue with importer failing to detect move/copy of folders to local import paths.


    • Full details of episode played in playlist view will now be shown in OSD.


    • Added Watched/Unwatched icons to playlist view.


    • New setting in configuration to add only 'Unwatched' episodes to a playlist.


    • When removing a custom view, all series associated with that view are now removed also.


    • Renamed 'Force Online Match' has been renamed to better describe its function.


    • Improved support for user defined scripts before/after playback.


    • Added Regular Expression support in 'String Replacements' section.

    Contributors
    We would like to thank all team members past and present and the community for their support, patches and bug reports.

    Hi Damien,

    thanks a lot for the new release and for all the great work!
    You refer to subcentral and that it has to be installed separately. Where can I get release of that which is installable for the normal user?
    I only know about some svn at subcentral - Revision 61: /trunk.

    Luca

    We still handle subtitle downloading internally, so users have a choice when the plugin becomes available for download

    hm, it could also have been created by the new streamedmp skin...

    I renamed the clear art files I found on the xbmc forums with their tvdb id: 2shared - download converted.rar
