Actually, there is a warning when I run ttvdb.py: I see
"InsecureRequestWarning: Unverified HTTPS request is being made.
Adding certificate verification is strongly advised. See:
I still get what looks like correct metadata. I also notice that the
banner urls returned within the xml, although http, redirect to https.
I'm not sure how that would lead to Mythfrontend failing to download
them, but I guess it could be connected.
