I am looking in "videometadata" and I see many entries in subtitle,
season and episode which I did not enter and could not have been
fetched remotely (mythtv is blocked from internet access).  These
entries must have been made by mythtv by parsing the filename for
information and at the time the entries were made, most certainly all
"metadata lookups" were disabled.

It seems like something is populating these fields when I scan/update
the Videos directory even though all metadata lookup stuff should be
turned off.
