John <smiling lots> I can't believe anybody would do real editing with nano. I have used vi since it ran on a PDP/11 with 100K ram, and have never looked back.

I changed the export from enabled to packages and I now have an issue that I only saw on Exit - the frontend GUI now occupies every 'space' in Apple terminology ie every workspace or desktop.

The grabber works

2021-01-31 21:24:19.855826 I  Running Grabber: /Applications/Mythfrontend.app/Contents/Resources/share/mythtv/metadata/Television/ttvdb.py -l en -a AU -C 79257
2021-01-31 21:24:20.338655 I  Result Found, Season 2 Episode 6
2021-01-31 21:24:20.338808 I  Returning Metadata Results: Planet Earth 2 6

but the clip shows no meta data (words or picture)
The whole grabber is iffy, but generally if you grab data a few times, resetting if it does not work, results in success.

ciao James
