Before anyone starts snickering, this is NOT for me, it's for my Mom (seriously).

The following two shows aren't scraping from TVDB:
Real Housewives of Potomac, The.S02E08.War of the Darbys
Real Housewives of Cheshire, The.S05E10.A Midsummer Night's Mare

TVDB shows that those two episodes are there. All other shows are working fine and have no issues, even in the same series. Both episodes yield effectively the same error (except of course for Season, Episode and TVdbID numbers)

How can I enable a full debug to help, or can this be recreated on your side?

Yes, for now, but expect tvdb breakages for a while, until MC is switched over to TVDB's V2 json api.
Trying to figure it out now.

Hi vbat99.
Have you had the time to make the change to tvdb v2 api yet?
I couldn't find it in the release notes anywhere.

Thanks in advance :-)

Not yet, Life is getting in the way right now, but it is progressing...slowly.

Fair enough, personal life comes first :-D
Do you know of a nifty workaround, or should i let kodi scrape the tv series?

Currently MC is working for scraping of TV series and Epsidoes.
TVDb site is still maintaining Version 1 of their API, and some issues that are creeping in they will fix until they fully change over.

please be patient, MC will change over to V2 api before TVDB closes off Ver 1.

Oh, then maybe i'm just having some other error.
I'm having trouble scraping Game of Thrones Season 1

I get the following:

Just checked with Danish language and this episode scraped correctly.

Probably an issue with TVDb, that has now been resolved.

Yes, APi V2 should solve these sort of problems.
