Needs a backend update to allow locking the show status when TMDB/TVDB mismatch like this.
We don't currently have a way to lock the status for mismatched shows like this. We'll need to do an update to allow this.
Still looking into the image fallback to other languages, not a super easy change with how it is currently setup to pull data.
I don't think the 8h delay would be the reason for not updating. Either it wasn't included in the TMDB "change" method or it for some reason errored out when trying to refresh. We don't have a way to look back that far and see if there was an error, but could have been API timeouts or some other malformed data at that time. Hard to say exactly especially since it refreshed ok manually.
Image updates will start tomorrow and it will look for movies and shows with a premiere date -14 days from today and +21 days from today, then queue those up for an image refresh. Hopefully this helps a lot and swaps out stale artwork for new stuff.
A small clarification, if a show/movie doesn't have artwork then it will pick up the missing poster/fanart once available on TMDB or TVDB, and they indicate the item has changed. That is why a show like "The Virtues" for example has a poster now.
I agree artwork needs some sort of logic to refresh. It works the way it does now to save bandwidth and so that artwork isn't constantly being pulled down from the image sources.
My main idea right now is to run a daily process where we look at movies and TV shows that have recently premiered (i.e. 7 days ago) then queue those up for image refreshes. Any sense what time frame is required until good artwork is available?
Waiting for TVDB removal.
These both exist on TVDB. One needs to be deleted over there first.
These exist on TMDB and TVDB, which is why they are both on Trakt. Once should be removed, then I can update Trakt to match.
TVDB only listed season 101, 201, 202, and 203 which doesn't make any sense. It will need to be corrected over there to be seasons 1, 2, 3 before I can update Trakt.
IMDB doesn’t have a public api, so no we don’t already use it.

So, this would be like sharing an image of that grid? Facebook sharing in general is super limited now since they changed what we can do, so I'm not sure its possible to do this effectively.
Are all of these games removed from TMDB as well?
I'll have an update out this week to use TMDB air dates if they are blank on TVDB. I don't envision moving to TMDB completely, but rather use it to fill in missing (i.e. air date) or better (i.e. hi res screenshots) episode data.
Scrobbles have a check to make sure the same data isn't inserted multiple times. I'll need to look into this for the manual watched history sync. It is not quite that simple since adding more lookups for every play will add a lot of performance overhead. This is likely a Trakt API v3 type of thing.
For now, you can run this in the browser console.
Looking into this, but Netflix provides very little data and the matching wouldn’t be the accurate.
I looked at the CSV file, but the data is very limited and it would be tough to accurately match episodes.
For example, Netflix gives this:
Lost in Space: Season 1: "Danger, Will Robinson"
So if we didn't have an exact title match, we wouldn't know which episode was watched. Using the names to match is not super accurate. I think a CSV import would be possible if Netflix provided IDs and actual episode numbers.
FYI: on the full screen mobile app, you can swipe the header bar left/right to go back/forward.
Regarding the mobile website, swiping on the header bar will navigate back and forward.
Also, I fixed the 2 shows you mentioned.
We can manually override the network on a season level. I'm not sure how best to apply this to the year in review, so I'll need to think about that part more.
I will contact our partners and see if they have plans to add this network.
Unfortunately no updates. I request they add this, but I haven't heard back if they plan to do so. I think it depends on if they can get the data in a reliable way from VRV.
Currently, you can hide a show from you calendar or progress page. Hiding from watched progress also hides it from your dashboard on deck. Hiding in those 2 places should work for most users.
This topic proposes a “dropped” status for a show. This would hide from the 3 sections mentioned above + add a “dropped” indicator in places such as the show summary page.
You can unhide here:
We give apps access to your list of hidden shows and seasons, but it depends if the app chooses to use that info. If they aren't, I would send in a feature request to the app developer since the Trakt API provides the data needed to hide your shows correctly.
To recap my previous replies, you can hide shows by clicking the Ø icon when viewing your dashboard up next, progress page, or calendar. There is no need to unwatch the items. You can unhide from trakt.tv/settings/hidden if needed too.
@Vicky we expose the hidden items for apps and plugins to use, but it sounds like whichever you are using might not use that data to hide within their app. I would recommend sending a feature request to the app developer.
Please provide your username so I can check if the items are correctly hidden. And also please send screenshots of the dashboard on deck and the collection progress so I can see if they line up correctly.
Do you see all the hidden shows listed at trakt.tv/settings/hidden? As I see it, the issue seems to be with the hiding either not working properly or not saving when you click the Ø icon to hide.
@Anonymous did you hide the show from your progress page? That removes it from your on deck as well. The watchlist is a special list for what you want to watch, so adding/removing to that shouldn't affect the progress or calendar.
@Anonymous you can hide the show from your progress page which will also hide it from your dashboard on deck. No need to mark it as 100% watched.
Liam, you can ignore seasons from the progress page as well. Just expand the percentage view, and there will be Ø icons next to each season as well.
Alan & Roxie, I'm not able to reproduce the issue. I just tested and was able to hide a show from my watched progress and it correctly hid from my on deck as well. If you have more info (i.e. browser errors, etc) please let me know. Can you confirm the show is actually hidden from the progress page too?
For the more recent comments, please be aware you can hide show from your calendar and progress pages directly to hide them from showing up. When hiding from your watched progress, this will also hide them from your on deck section.
I agree we need to limit it in some way. As mentioned in the other topics, it is not quite that simple due to different release dates around the world, early premieres, or press viewings.
Requested more info on which specific modals.
Which modal are you referring to?
If a show is re-appearing, that means a connected app is adding it back. Trakt itself autoremoves the show from your watchlist once you watch at least one episode. Some apps incorrectly try and override this functionality and add it back to your list.
Please review your connected apps at https://trakt.tv/oauth/authorized_applications to figure out which app could be doing this. I would also recommend contacting the app developer and request they stop doing this.
I'll look into adding a clear option, but for now please send a private support ticket with your username and I can manually clear it out for you.
Hmm, not sure we can easily do that. As you mentioned, the info that goes left to right on desktop, changes to up to down on mobile, which is what it is currently doing. The current layout seems to make sense since it lists the show title, percentage, then the info about how we calculated that percentage, and lastly the next episode you have to watch. Let me know if I'm missing something in my understanding.
