Metadata looked up from within the video player is now generic to the series rather than specific to the episode, so I don't see the episode title or the description of what happens in the episode. There also seems to be a problem with downloading artwork.

Paul great confusion here. It seems the movie grabber gets different data at different times.
Also I find (and this must be myth)

I->Change Video->Retrieve
gets generic metadata

Whereas menu->scan
retrivies specific data

but the scan way leaves out some movies and the I way is needed. Also the I way does not log what it is doing. I'll play with the logging to see if I can make sense here.

What we need is the developer[s] who crafted this feature to spend a little time polishing the debugging so we can unravel what is happening. The code is complicated and python is alien as it contavenes my personal ethos.
