Having managed to accidentally wipe all my video metadata (playing with a script... whoops) I've been trying to re-download it all again by using mythvideo and choosing the 'Download Metadata' option. Some Movies for which I was previously able to get information are now reporting an error - I get a popup which says:

Video Data Query Failed
syntax error at line 1, column 49, byte 49 at
/usr/lib/perl5/XML/Parser.pm line 187

After some debugging, it looks like this is because the query in question is returning a '404 Not Found' HTML page:
./tmdb.pl -D 0061405

<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//IETF//DTD HTML 2.0//EN">                                                                                                                                  
<title>404 Not Found</title>                                                                                                                                                        
<h1>Not Found</h1>                                                                                                                                                                  
<p>The requested URL /2.0/esi.imdbLookup was not found on this server.</p>                                                                                                          
<address>Apache/2.2.3 (CentOS) Server at api.themoviedb.org Port 8080</address>                                                                                                     

The script is submitting the request:

So why esi.imdbLookup in the response?
