Hi Hika

Can you explain this. I don't understand.

All you need to do is go into mythfrontend -> setup -> Artwork and Data 
Sources -> Television Metadata Source

Change there to whichever script you want and it will use that script 
for shows that do not have the inetref filled in.

If you link one of the other script names to ttvdb.py then those 
recording rules and recorded shows that have ttvdb.py_nnnnn in the 
inetref will lookup the wrong show because the nnnnn is different for 
each of the sources.

Maybe this works differently in 0.27. Does 0.27 have the Artwork and 
Data Sources entry?
