I apologize if you already solved this - but i just had the same problem on
my 0.29 and I am on CentOS 7. I found out that my default - the tvdb api
was NOT installed. When I go to mythfrontend / artwork - it shows tmdb for
the movies as one of the source but nothing for TV or for Games.
Since I don't care for games, I didn't really research for it - but I found
I had to install python-pip, then do an upgrade like the link says. And
pip install --tvdb-api
That fixed it for *me*
IF you are seeing the same issue of "no" source for TV - this should help.
