We have tried pinging The TVDB website using our server and the website returned the above results. If thetvdb.com is down for us too there is nothing you can do except waiting. Probably the server is overloaded, down or unreachable because of a network problem, outage or a website maintenance is in progress...

Can't Access The TVDB - Troubleshooting Instructions

If the site is UP but you cant access the page, try one of the below solutions:

Browser Related Problems

Force a full refresh for the site. This can be achieved by pressing CTRL + F5 keys at the same time on your favourite browser (Firefox, Chrome, Explorer, etc.)

Clear the temporary cache and cookies on your browser to make sure that you have the most recent version of the web page. For instructions choose your browser :

Fix DNS Problems

A Domain Name System (DNS) allows a site IP address (192.168.x.x) to be identified with words (*.com) in order to be remembered more easily, like a phonebook for websites. This service is usually provided by your ISP.

Clear your local DNS cache to make sure that you grab the most recent cache that your ISP has. For Windows - (Start > Command Prompt > type "ipconfig /flushdns" and hit enter). For details choose your operating system :

If you can access a website at office or from a 3G network yet it's not working on your computer, it is a good idea to use an alternative DNS service other than your ISPs. OpenDNS or Google Public DNS are both excellent and free public DNS services.

Check our help page for step-by-step instructions on how to change your DNS.

down for the last 9 hours, but sometimes up for a few minutes.
made a fresh kodi install, and now i can't scan my genesis library.

ps Phillipe Absil: there's not a real alternative for the tvdb unless you know korean. (and don't mind it has little result for western tv shows) in that case use/install the DAUM add on.

Thetvdb.com has been completely offline for several hours. No scraping or API access. That brings app dev to a sudden halt for now.

Yeah it's down right now, again. Oh well. It'll be back online eventually.

Anyone having trouble using the API? The 'GetSeries' endpoint worked a few times yesterday, but isn't working again today.

XBMC alternative scraper, uses TVRage instead: github.com/thebandit/xbmc_tvrageapi_tvscraper/downloads

Hmm. that's a bummer. Ripped a whole sh*tload of DVDs from my collection, and now I can't import them to XBMC yet.
Yeah. first world problem. I know. But still a bit of a bummer.

I'm using xbmc tvdb scraper and I keep getting the message that it cannot access the tvdb server when trying to add information to the TV shows I have in my library. I checked and have the same problems on my raspberry pi and on my windows laptop. Any idea what I need to do to have access. Other scrapers like themoviedb work fine.
