Not finding ANY of DC digital books #56

I'm not sure if this counts as a duplicate to the no books found or not, so feel free to mark as a dup and close if you think it does Evilhero

I've tried to add most/all of the DC digital first books and literally none of them are showing up when attempting to add even though a search turns them up and they are listed on Comic Vine. A partial list of what I've tried:

Superman Beyond
Batman Beyond
Masters of the Universe (May also be He-man and the Masters of the Universe)
Justice League Beyond
AME-Comi Girls
Legends of the Dark Knight
Smallville Season 11
Batman: Arkham Unhinged

I have not been able to add a single one of the Digital First books to my pull list yet but my non-programmer eyes can't see why they'd be any different to search for/add than anything else. I understand they may not be found if they aren't put on usenet but at least it should allow me to look for them right?

They're only different because they're not listed on comics.org ... Mylar uses ComicVine for initial search results and then when one is selected it jumps to comis.org(GCD) to find the match and pull down the needed data. It does this because it needs issue dates (used in searching for nzbs) which Isn't easy to get with using comicvine. I've been fiddling around and got Arkham Unhinged to work but the rest won't. I buiit in exceptions for when it can't find a match on GCD but it exists - I'll have to revisit this and maybe just have an alternate fallback to use CV only which might cause problems with searching because of no issue dates.

Fair enough, I just wanted to make sure you were aware of it, if I leave
the books as errors in my Manage Comics list (where it lists the Comic ID
instead of the title) once the issue is resolved will it correct that, or
would I need to readd them once it is working (just trying to figure if I
should clean up my manage list since i"ll have to readd or leave it.)
