[mythtv-users] Video metadata lookups are stalling

These last few days video metadata lookups have become a hit-and-miss
affair. Today I decided to investigate.

I've been adding a number of movies to my mythvideo collection. For some
of them the metadata came up OK, but not for several others.

The one I'm ivestigating is "Thor: Ragnarok". When I run the grabber
manually it works: running the following command as the mythtv user on
the master backend

$ /usr/share/mythtv/metadata/Movie/tmdb3.py --debug --movielist "Thor

dumps a load of relevant information as you would expect, but nothing
appears in the mythvideo client.

If I then go onto filling in "tmdb3.py_284053" in the inetref field
using the frontend (running on the master backend) and attempt
retrieving all details, the log says that it is running
"/usr/share/mythtv/metadata/Movie/tmdb3.py -l en -a GB -D 284053" but
nothing happens.

If I try and run this command myself, adding "--debug" I see that it
stalls on the following line:


Any ideas?

Thanks, Jan
