Hi all

Just started using this great application but have run into intermittent issues when searching tvrage for episode information.

It returns this error : tvrage.com: read time out

This can happen when I search for a show or when I select a show and then want to go to the next step to select the seasons I want.

Any help or advice would be appreciated.

This is a problem from time to time. Their website is not super stable. Sometimes they get more visitors than their hardware can handle.

Is there another website you can import from like IMDB.com

TVrage.com has been offline for over 24 hours and who knows when it will be back up, and I know IMDB.com is always up and running

maybe add a option for people to select if the want to use TVrage.com or IMDB.com

It has been some time since I checked out the IMDB API, so I don't remember why I decided to use TVRage instead of IMDB, but I must have had a pretty good reason. TVRage has had various problems though time. Let's hope it gets online again soon.

Would it be possible to look into IMDB.com again?

And add a feature in the program to allow users to choose which site they would like to get their info from. I know this adds quite a bit more programming but if it makes your users happy its well worth it in the long run.

TVrage.com has been down now for about 2 days and very unreliable for the past week at least.

TVRage may not be coming back
