I'd look in mythmetadatalookup.log for the actual command that was run, e.g.:

     ... Running Grabber: /usr/local/share/mythtv/metadata/Television/ttvdb.py -l xx -a xx -C xxxxx

Then run that command from the command line maybe even include the --debug option.
You can even append:   ;echo $?   to the command line to see the code that would
be returned to mythmetadatalookup.

It appears that 140 (GENERIC_EXIT_KILLED) replaces all status codes except GENERIC_EXIT_TIMEOUT
in mythsystemunix.

I'm wondering if that's masking the true error. Running the grabber from the command line should tell.
