I suspect you and Graham are just now encountering the issue fixed with
this ticket:
I don't know why you weren't having problems getting TV series metadata
before now. But I'll bet that now your problem is missing and/or out of
date python packages. If so, you will need to upgrade and install some
python packages so that the new version of ttvdb.py works. The ticket
comments should help you figure that out.
