No worries. I just appreciate the help. Thanks.

The ttvdb.py is working perfectly, I believe. In MythTV, I'm getting
correct metadata. I believe even the artwork urls are correct, because
they work in a browser. The problem comes when MythTV tries to download
from any of the urls. I get a message on my frontend that the download
fails and in the logs I see "Tried to write <url>, but it appears to be
an HTML redirect or corrupt file (filesize 0).".
