I have tested the integration with mythtv and that works. Even beter
than I had expected!
I thought it possible that mythmetadatalookup would simply use the
script name in the inetref, but I thought first to test what would
happen if I renamed tvmaze.py to ttvdb.py and it worked. So good that
the inetref was after the hit changed to reflect tvmaze.py.

However, if you do not copy either tvmaze.py or tmdb3tv.py to ttvdb.py
searches won't work, it will always come up with a tmdb3.py reference.

So choose which of the two you want and copy (or simlink) that one to
