[mythtv-users] Get errors on one show's metadata grab

     I did some checking and I think the issue is with the XML that 
thetvdb.com is returning with their API (not from their web site). Here 
is the URL that ttvdb.py uses to get all episodes of "The Daily Show 
with Jon Stewart" 71256:

Try that URL out in a browser and you will get an error which ttvdb.py 
traps and then returns nothing to MythTV.

Here is the same URL for the "The Forgotten" 94981 series and you will 
see the returned XML has no errors.

I read a few days ago that thetvdb.com is moving to a new cache server 
and there will likely be some issues. There is nothing that MythTV can 
do about this problem. This same move caused a lot of response issues 
during this past week.
