Thanks Doug,

I've started the frontend with -v media, however nothing is logged. 
Which logging option should give me the right info?
mythfrontend -v extra gives me this:
2010-11-22 17:18:47.327 Fetching details in Video Home
2010-11-22 17:18:47.327 Fetching details in
2010-11-22 17:18:47.328 Fetching details in All
2010-11-22 17:18:47.328 Fetching details in Thriller

If I understand you correctly, the first call to tmdb gets a list of 
matches, one of those containing <inetref>9799</inetref>
The next call gets the details required for Mythvideo (metadata)using 
the inetref

Manual queries give the right data, however an "update details" from 
myth does not insert metadata.
The "update details" works fine for other video's.
