Okay - That, along with the previous suggestion led to the solution! So the
command failed with the home directory set to mythtv, where it had
previously worked running as just the user mythtv. So this led me to check
the cache directory of /home/mythtv/.mythtv and sure enough, as previously
suggested, no tvdb_api directory existed for that user (I previously
checked my user's home directory). So I created that directory for the
mythtv user with the right permissions and  lookup jobs now work.
