Hi John,

Sorry I mis-spoke about the OSD.  It is working fine for me, but that is
likely a function of the fact I'm running on a mini connected to the TV and
not using a built-in display like a laptop.

I've downloaded your latest build, but unfortunately no joy:

2020-07-18 09:23:18.326442 I  Running Grabber:
-l en -a US -C 105

2020-07-18 09:23:18.575312 I  Metadata Lookup Failed: No Results Back to
the Future 0 0

2020-07-18 09:23:18.741871 I  No results found for Back to the Future 0 0

It looks like there's an issue with the grabbers:

familymini at familymini ~ % APP_PATH=/Applications/Mythfrontend.app

familymini at familymini ~ % export

familymini at familymini ~ %
$APP_PATH/Contents/Resources/share/mythtv/metadata/Television/ttvdb.py -t

The modules tvdb_api.py (v2.0 or greater).

They should have been installed along with the MythTV python bindings.

Error:(No viable database module found.)

familymini at familymini ~ %
$APP_PATH/Contents/Resources/share/mythtv/metadata/Movie/tmdb3.py -t

Failed to import MythTV bindings. Check your `configure` output to make
sure installation was not disabled due to external dependencies

Failed to import PyTMDB3 library. This should have been included with the
python MythTV bindings.

Here's what I have installed:

familymini at familymini ~ % port installed requested
