You should be running mythicalLibrarian as the same user who runs mythtv. I will see about adding a note on that at the start of mythicalSetup.

Good to know. MythTV runs under the mythtv user, as does mythicalLibrarian, but generally when I update/setup mythicalLibrarian, I do it as my own user.

mythicalLibrarian hasn't been working for me today.
I had a poke around today and it was the communication with thetvdb.com that was failing as it was getting back a 301 redirect when trying to get the series information:
curl can follow 301 redirects if you add -L to it's command line. I've added -L to all the curl calls to thetvdb.com api and all appears to be working well again now.
Not sure if anybody else is seeing this problem, but hopefully helps somebody.

I just finished transcoding all of my recordings to remove the commercials. I ran the --scan and most everything was added to showings.
Maybe the same issue mellowpellow had?

I had a related issue to mellowpellow and divingmule - when running mythicalLibrarian --update, all the install checks show "pass" until the test of Mr. Rogers at the end; it fails to find the episode information and throws an error. Must have been a change at thetvdb's end?
- mellowpellow - 2011-04-09 20:13
Yeah that sounds like exactly what I was seeing, everything was ending up in Showings as the mythicalLibrarian script couldn't fetch the series/episode information. As you said looks like something changed at the thetvdb.com.
A couple of caveats about my changes below:
If you're not used to editing shell scripts wait until it's fixed properly by by outleradam.
To fix it I edited my /usr/local/bin/mythicalLibrarian script and changed:
line 849, from:
line 879, from:
line 903, from:
line 1182, from:
Basically anywhere that curl is used to access http://www.thetvdb.com/api you need to add -L to the command line arguments.
