The file parsing method within mythtv has a special rule for multiple dots
inside the file name.

I do always enter on special video/tv-series names the correct inetref
value in
I -> Change Video Details -> Edit Details
One gets this value by searching on tmdb.org or themoviedb.org and it needs
prepend this number with either 'tmdb3.py_' or 'ttvdb.py_" inside the field.

Then I perform the actual search by
I -> Change Video Details -> Retrieve Video Details

This makes searching much easier, giving more accurate results.
