[mythtv-users] Problem with ttvdb.py

I'm missing some information about TV Season and Episode numbers in Myth
and decided to do a bit of research into why. It looks like you would
$ mythmetadatalookup --refresh-all
In order to fill in this information. But there are still some recordings
that do not fill the information in, but yet it exists in tvdb. When
exploring this a bit further, I get a lot of output from the command, but
this one little snip is of interest. It looks like it executes this:
2017-02-08 16:12:27.926741 I Running Grabber:
/usr/share/mythtv/metadata/Television/ttvdb.py -l en -a US -N 272472 Pups
Save a Blimp; Pups Save a Chili Cook-Out
2017-02-08 16:12:28.325963 I Running Grabber:
/usr/share/mythtv/metadata/Television/ttvdb.py -l en -a US -C 272472
2017-02-08 16:12:28.576924 I Result Found, Season 0 Episode 0
2017-02-08 16:12:28.576983 I Returning Metadata Results: PAW Patrol 0 0
If I look the information up in tvdb, it is definitely in there as "Paw
Patrol" S04xE01 and S04xE02, but mythmetadatalookup says it returns 0.
So then, I try to execute the ttvdb command...
$ /usr/share/mythtv/metadata/Television/ttvdb.py -r -i -N 272472 "Pups Save
And the information it returns back is 'returned zero results'. I thought
it was a bit strange, so I substitute the series id (272472) with the
series name, and I am starting to get some information back. For example...
/usr/share/mythtv/metadata/Television/ttvdb.py -r -i -N "Paw Patrol" "Pups
Save a Blimp"
This will then return information about the particular episode.
Now "Paw Patrol" may be a bad example because the half hour(?) show has two
episodes in it, so the recording will place a semi-colon to separate the
two. But, this is happening on more episodes than just this one.
I think what the problem is that ttvdb searches on the tvdb series ID
instead of the name. I was wondering if anybody was having a similar
experience or if this is a known issue...or something that I'm doing wrong.
