  1. Fix images

    Alright, so the site that Simkl gets TV show data from, TheTVDB, has recently undergone some changes. Since those changes, images for TV episodes are no longer appearing for some shows- old images that have already been there stay, but any new ones added on TheTVDB will not appear on Simkl.

    One example of a series with this problem would be MasterChef. On Simkl, the latest image shown for season 10 is "Someone's Toast"(https://simkl.com/tv/20473/masterchef-us/episodes/#s10). However, on TheTVDB, the latest image shown is "One Pan Wonder" (https://www.thetvdb.com/series/masterchef-us/seasons/10).

    An admin from TheTVDB responded to me saying, "If any…

  2. Delay new shows appearence by a day or account for timezones

    Be able to introduce a delay before seeing new available shows. I live in germany and new shows appear when it's midnight in the US but they will only be aired about 10 hours later. So either take my timezone into account or to make it easy, a checkbox with a +1 day delay would be fine.

  3. Search results sould show exact BEGIN matches first

    Search results sould show exact BEGIN matches first.
    When I search for "the magicians", when I type "the magic" I should see this result before "care bears: unlock the magic". Results should also be sorted by rank and also titles I watch should come befrore everything else.

    There is currently a bug in the search that does not sort relevant results first. We’re looking into it, something to do with collecting search stats incorrectly.

    Searching for “the mag” should display “The magicians” at the top when it’s working correctly.

  4. Bugs in Windows app.

    When running it causes strange behaviour in already opened windows. Sometimess you need several tries to switch between opened explorer windows for example. Or when switching from browser window to explorer window the focus changes, but the browser window stays on top for some reason. Or you need to click on explorer icon in taskbar several times to see the explorer window on top of somethimg already opened.

    Most likely you have multiple Microsoft Visual C++ versions installed on your computer and the tracker gets stuck, uninstalling them usually helps. You can find Visual* in: Control Panel\Programs\Programs and Features

  5. Overwrite existing entries when importing

    Scores, watching status etc.

    You can change\remove your watching status and rating in tv\movie details. Will look into how we can make the overwrite function for stuff already on your watchlist without breaking what you have already marked as watched.

  6. Save custom anchor href link per show

    I would like to save a link to my favored streaming site for each show.
    Launch out button/anchor in extension list of shows.

    Please add the option to import from Tv time, because this site it's free and super easy to use.

    Currently, this is not possible. We don’t have the TV Time API key and they have not responded to the API key request. Ask TV Time to allow Simkl to import your data and give them the API key. Or Aks TV Time how you can export your own watch history data.

  10. Use profiles from TV apps on AppleTV/Roku etc. to import/track viewing history

    This will be a LOT of development hours...but...

    To address "Why can’t just import my browsing history from my cable provider?"...Well, I'd wager most of the users of SIMKL are digital natives. As cord cutters, using boxes (Roku, Firestick, Chromecast, AppleTV) or just a smart TV, BUT ALSO, we still use our parents Xfinity login credentials, a tedious strategy for importing is (theoretically) possible.

    A piecemeal method to import history from those Smart TV/Roku/Apple TV "apps" (that REQUIRE a license/login from a cable provider): FOX, CW, ABC, etc. To import viewing history from say a user’s FX profile (that’s connected…

  11. Need to reload after going back a page

    REALLY wish had Amazon Prime importing history. Also, doesn’t apply to me, but Apple…whatever iTunes/AppleTV app would be a good media importer.

    +Stretch goals might be to import from those “TV apps, HBO GO/NOW, FOX, NBC, (you can see them on Chromecast, AppleTV, Roku), to import from a user’s FX profile (that’s connected to their Xfinity account to authorise it) could be cool.

    For UI changes
    If feasible, in Chrome you can have custom search engines, so, in the omnibox (where the URL is) I can type www.bbc.co.uk TAB and then type “X tv series” and return & Chrome takes…

    1. Amazon and other sites don’t currently have history page of your watch list or APIs. If you know any, please let us know.

    2. You can use https://simkl.com/search?q={search_term_string} for search

    3. Could you please try disabling Adblock or try using Chrome browser and see if you still have a back button issue? If yes, What page you open then go to, when the back button breaks?

  12. Merge anime seasons into one show

    It would be much better if you could merge Seasons 1 & 2 of Attack On Titan, My Hero Academia, and any other anime in need on your site into one show.

  13. Erroneous second season of "Planet Earth" (not on TVDB)

    I tried to fix this myself on TVDB, only to find that TVDB was correct and Simkl was out of sync with it. Not sure if this is a deeper problem or not (I don't know how often data is refreshed).

    I know this was added here before but being able to report errors natively in Simkl would be much more user friendly than having to post here (think of trying to attract the average web user).

  15. Turkish TV Shows

    It would not be bad also add Turkish series. The community of the Turkish series is huge and such a page as Simkl with Turkish TV Shows would be unique.

    Спасибо, добавили в поиск, доступен тут: https://simkl.com/tv/531710/sashatanya но пока что На tvdb нету названий эпизодов http://thetvdb.com/?tab=season&seriesid=270414&seasonid=521732&lid=7 поэтому не импортируется в Simkl серии. Пока что необходимо чтобы были названия серий (вы можете добавить сами на tvdb) чтобы можно было отметить серии в этом сериале. Мы попробуем добавить в будущем возможность импортировать без названий серий, добавили в todo.

  17. Add screenshot to an episode

    It would be nice if we can add a screenshot or an image to an episode that it doesn't have it. Like it happens with this show

    Right now you can add screenshots directly into thetvdb.com for that episode and it will appear on Simkl as well. This will help the whole TV community.

  19. Integration with Lightswitch for Chrome, with Hue Lights

    It would be nice if lights in your house would change with every episode you watch, or movie, when you finish or start a new show.
