Well, the TVDB website is back up and I am trying to use jamu.py to get
the metadata for my shows.

I am using a modified version of jamu which looks at the full pathname
of the files and gets info that way (and judging from the logs it is
working) but I get a jamu crash.

Below is the full log for the crash:

[mythtv at mythtv scripts]$ ./jamu.py -l en -bMIVN

I know that there was an error getting the information from TVDB and it
seems like the data for that particular SID is missing. Does anyone
know what is going on there?

Is anybody else getting similar errors from missing TV series?
