Which I've been doing assiduously over the last few days.

I've even been into /var/lib/mythtv/fanart and deleted the files, reset the metatdata, and tried again. It still shows the old fanart. But I know for a fact that tmdb.pl -B is returning  link to the new fanart - which means mythvideo must still be using the OLD link. How can I clear the connection between my video and the fanart link I no longer want?

Clear your theme cache.

rm -rf ~/.mythtv/themecache/*
