It depends on what you're after-- If all you're trying to get is artwork,
then all of this is unnecessary-- you *only* need to edit the recording
rule, pick the correct "House" from the list of returns when the query
happens, and run mythmetdatalookup --refresh-all; mythmetadatalookup
--refresh-all-artwork , after which point your existing House recordings
will have the correct inetref, you will have artwork for at least one
season, and all recording of house will use it.  Everything you have asked
in this thread only pertains to assigning the correct S##e## value to each
item.  If you want that, yes, someone will need to put localized titles
into the TVDB- from our perspective we would prefer that this be the
"official" titles, which would ideally be what the guide source provided
(it appears not to be).

Inetref on the rule will propagate to the resulting recordings, and will
also be used as the key to load artwork.  Subtitle will be used with title
or inetref to assign season and episode values.
