Put the subtitle in quotes.  The logging output is not a reflection of the
command that is actually being run, where the subtitle would be
escaped/quoted.  There are no results for the show with that subtitle.

You continue to have the same trouble, and the solution is still exactly
the same as it was last time-- if your guide data is of poor quality, as
this is, you need to work around it by editing the recording rule metadata
and selecting the correct show, so that the recording rule has an inetref
and either an exact season/episode or more likely given this guide quality,
a season/episode of 1x01.  Assuming you have a *pristine database* without
manually added info, you can then propagate the inetref you have just set
from the rule to the recordings based on that rule with

mythmetadatalookup --refresh-all

Any recording which was made based on the rule you just edited will have
the inetref of that rule, assuming it was empty beforehand.

Hereafter, lookups for House would look something like this:

/usr/share/mythtv/metadata/Television/ttvdb.py -l sv -N 73255 "Del 11 av 23
säsong 2010"

Which will still fail because the guide data isn't correct, but the
recordings of house paste, present, and future will all have correct
inetref and will load whatever artwork is available for the show.  Once
mythmetadatalookup --refresh-all-artwork (or depending on the state of your
database, --refresh-all-artwork-dangerously) is run, it will go out and get
at least Season 1 artwork for House based on the rule.  All the "unknown"
episodes of house will pull up that artwork when no better artwork is


So, you're in a slightly better place as you're using the correct FE
language now, but the guide data is still poor and thus you need to follow
the wiki instructions for how to set the inetref for your rule and
propagate that data to the recordings.
