I don't know about trunk (I run 0.23-fixes), but I had this before when
I've made mistakes with the file names so MythVideo was unable to detect
the season & episode numbers for new videos after a scan.

I've also noticed it with the new hashing method since 0.23.  If I add a
video file with a generic name, and then I do a scan before renaming it
to the proper format the episode & season numbers don't get picked up in
subsequent scans as the contents of the file is the same. So only the
filename changes and the rest of the metadata is left alone.

Have you checked the metadata for the video you're trying the grab on?
If it doesn't have a season & episode number specified it will assume
its a movie and do the lookup using TMDB instead ...
