Album scraper does not find information

Sun Dec 20, 2015 5:43 pm

I am struggling with getting the artwork etc. for an album in Kodi on Linux:
Mike + The Mechanics - Living Years
I can get the information for the artist, and the album Hits, and the Living Years information is in theAudioDb.
If I use the http string directly, the information is returned.
The scraper seems to set up a cache .json file which does hold the correct information. I deleted it and it was recreated, but no information was returned by the GUI.
The debug information is:

Code: Select all

As you can see at the end, the results are empty.

I can't find anything about this when searching the web.
Does anyone have any ideas on what I may be doing wrongly, or what further debug information I can get?

Any help greatly appreciated.
