Only my PC based front ends have anything in the Artwork and Metadata setup
and it's TheMovieDB.org v3 that is mentioned in the OP. The Television
section has that as well, but can be changed to tvmaze, but it's set the
same as movies now. Android TV frontends don't have anything in those
fields, which I'm told is normal.

So I didn't change anything and the updates seem to have updated those
settings now for the March 31st change.
