Kodi add-on confuses TVDb & TMDb Ids
I'm really looking for help, but this is the only forum I can find. My Kodi installation with Trakt add-on is reporting The Orville as The Debbie Reynolds Show. I've figured out that they have the same id on different websites. The TMDb Id for The Orville is 71738 and the TVDb ID for The Debbie Reynolds Show is also 71738. I'm using TMDb as the information provider in Kodi. How do I make the add-on report the correct show?
I think it is a requirement to use the TVDB based scraper. Check out https://github.com/trakt/script.trakt and the readme seems to indicate that.
Sure thing. I didn't realize the addon was third party. Thanks for the link to the source. The developer is quite a large douchebag, this is going to be unpleasant.

I'm just going based on this in the readme.
"Local media should be played in Kodi library mode and you should use TVDb (for tv shows) and TMDb (for movies) as your scrapers. TV shows are identified using their TVDb ID. Movies are identified using the IMDb ID. This allows Trakt to match the correct show or movie more accurately, regardless of the title."
If you'd like, please post the Kodi log file in the github project as a new issue and give some details and steps to reproduce the issue. Thanks!
But It works fine for all other shows so it's obviously not a requirement.
