[mythtv-users] How to use tmdb.pl with MythVideo/MythWeb

For those of you using either trunk or 0.21-fixes who want to use 
tmdb.pl with MythWeb's "IMDB" lookup or for any 0.21-fixes users who 
want to use tmdb.pl with MythVideo, there are instructions at 
http://www.mythtv.org/wiki/Tmdb.pl .

Note that if you have already downloaded and installed tmdb.pl for use 
in 0.21-fixes, you'll need to do so again to get the MythWeb portion 
working (do the download /and/ the install again--using the 
current/updated instructions on the page).  Similarly, trunk users who 
haven't updated to r20306 (from earlier today, Apr 4, 2009) or beyond 
will need to download an updated tmdb.pl (either by updating all of Myth 
or just by following the instructions on that page).

Having done so, myself, I can say that the quality of the posters is 
/significantly/ better than those I used to get with imdb.pl.
