[mythtv-users] Important: Changes to Metadata lookup in March 2021

Need some clarification on the Artwork and Data Sources settings and 

My understanding which is probably wrong is:

- The backend runs the metadata lookup job when a TV program is being 
recorded as a part of post-processing.

- You set the sources of the metadata lookup for the backend via the 
mythfrontend setup -> Artwork and Data Sources

So my question is if on one x86_64 mythfrontend, I change to the new 
TheMovieDB.org V3 Television, will that fix the problem for the old site 
being shutdown?

I ask because I had it set right on one frontend and then checked this 
morning on a different frontend and it showed the old tvdb setting.
