Comment (by simon.sinister@…):

 Replying to [comment:1 dekarl]:
 > Steve, I'm trying to come up with a solution that makes sense for all
 kinds of recording rules. e.g. manual recording of the "monday night
 movies" time slot or a people search.
 > If you manually set up series recording rules you can also manually
 enter the reference to thetvdb. That way MythTV should directly pull in
 the right series level information, ignoring the recording title.
   The patch I provided 14 months ago completely solves the problem. There
 are only 3 methods which search for a metadata match:
 MetaGrabberScript::Search(const QString &title, ...),
 MetaGrabberScript::SearchSubtitle(const QString &title, ...), and
 MetaGrabberScript::SearchSubtitle(const QString &inetref, ...). My
 solution updates the first two. The third one ignores the 'title'
 parameter, so it needed no update.
   For the scenario, you mentioned, the third method should be invoked,
 since you're providing the inetref value.
   See metadatadownload.cpp
  * handleTelevision
  * attempt to find television data via the following (in order)
  * 1- By inetref with subtitle
  * 2- By inetref with season and episode
  * 3- By inetref
  * 4- By title and subtitle
  * 5- By title
 MetadataLookupList MetadataDownload::handleTelevision(MetadataLookup

   The original Component 'MythTV - Mythmedatalookup' was correct. The
 original Type 'Patch - Bug Fix' was correct. All I need is someone with
 privileges to review my solution and merge it in.
