File did not match metadata pattern help

Aug 11, 2013 at 10:38 PM
I'm getting an issue with my files not matching the search criteria I put into MCEBuddy 2.1.14 (not a problem with 2.1.12). My log file shows the following:

2013-08-11T17:27:17 MCEBuddy.Engine.QueueManager --> File S01E09 - Framed.ts did not match meta data pattern

My criteria in my MCEBuddy profile are included in the last few lines of the log. filename filter = .ts, showname filter is blank and channel filter is .;~PBS I'm trying to convert something not recorded on pbs so theoretically should not be an issue.

Any ideas?

your problem is the network filter, what is

~
2013-08-11T17:27:17 MCEBuddy.Engine.QueueManager --> Network >ABC<, checking for network/channel filter >.;~PBS<
~

You should post your code or log file within the CODE quotes


Aug 12, 2013 at 1:11 AM
That's interesting, in channel name match in MCEBuddy I have listed
*.*;~PBS*
It looks like MCEBuddy is not picking up part of that then? What should I have listed in the code if I'm looking to encode any channel as long as it's not PBS?

Thanks.

I need your mcebuddy.log file and the conversion log file. There are two checks for metadata I need to understand where it is messing up

Coordinator

Also this looks like you're using an Argus TV metadata file. Can you upload the conversion log file AND the Argus XML metadata file to the MCEBuddy server, I'll try to replicate the issue and see what's going on.

Okay I found the issue, you've configured your filters as:
Show Selection Pattern -> *.*
Channel Selection Pattern -> *.*;~PBS*
That is incorrect. It should be:
Show Selection Pattern -> *
Channel Selection Pattern -> *;~PBS*
*.* tells MCEBuddy to look for a . in the metadata (anything before . and anything after .), that is ONLY used for filenames, it should be just * or blank for your show selection pattern.

That worked, thanks for the help.
Jan 20, 2014 at 1:38 AM
Just checked in the latest beta and the example in the floating help text for this option still says to use .;~ABC*
Jan 20, 2014 at 1:40 AM
That should have read *.*;~ABC*

Thanks will fix it

Interesting, I believe this is also the issue I am having with Build 13...and I confirm that the tool tips are showing as Verulamim states as that is the source of my filter formatting.

Will go and change my filters to the above format and report back - yip all fixed and running again...
