Scraper not working with manual IMDB ID

hello and good day

a long windows platform user here and recently I am moving into the N2+/COREELEC platform and i also decided also to build from the ground, including my libraries

however i am experiencing a strange problem as i cannot scrap a movie (actually any movie i tried so far) manually using the imdb id code

i replicated the problem with one movie with the imdb id code tt6336002, the title is “The Curious World of Hieronymus Bosch” and my debug log is here:

http://ix.io/3Ci6

any assistance will be hugely appreciated

many thx in advance

This is really a Kodi scraper issue I think, not a CE problem

From that I can see the relevant bit is here, and the last line is showing no results:

(So you sould probably ask over at the Kodi forums in the scraper thread)

mthx! yes i also suspected it has something to do with kodi or even with imdb and even kodi unrelated

anyhow, even imdb parsing NFOs have been giving me grief

for anyone having the same problem, work around for me has been to make a separate folder for offensive items, change content and use tmdb parser (ie not the universal movie) for this specific folder and then use parsing NFOs (text files with only the link to the appropriate movie in TMDB)
