It keeps getting longer and longer between issues. Any problems?

Things are working pretty good overall, but I record re-runs of America's Funniest Home Videos on our local FOX affiliate so my wife has something random to watch in the afternoon. They usually get detected as S01E01 and then get dumped into the Season 1 folder with the same name, so XBMC doesn't see individual episodes.
MythTV seems to consistently have guide data info, but rarely seems to mesh with the data from TheTVDB. I'd prefer just to port the Ep Num and Guide Info over to XBMC, I think.
Is it possible to create an exception or something similar?
Here's the output of manually processing one of the files:

It had no title and there was no airdate in the tvdb.. So it matched on a title. The title matched every title there ever was because it was blank so it chose the first one.
I'll add a new rule so if there's no title and no airdate then it will match as a generic showing.

Notifications to XBMC - shrioux - 2011-10-04 20:26
HI, I've been using mythical librarian for a couple of years now, and have had very little issues with it.
However, about a month ago it stopped sending notifications to my XBMC front ends.
Mythical diagnostics says it failed to communicate
Press any key to perform XBMC Notification test...
Performing XBMC Notifications test
SENDING REQUESTED COMMANDS TO:XBMCbase:8090
COMMUNICATIONS NOT ESTABLISHED: XBMCbase:8090
XBMC Communications ***FAILED***

MythTV Database Test: ***PASSED***

XBMC Communications: ***FAILED***
File System Checks: ***PASSED***
-----End of diagnostics-----
XBMC Communications have failed. Likely causes: Improper IP address,
or XBMC is not equipped to handle external network commands in settings.
mythicalLibrarian will not send messages or library update requests.
I have tried sending to the system by hostname and IP, I've changed ports and everything. I even ran mythicalLibrian update about 3 days ago, and same thing.
I have no idea why it stopped sending the notifications. The system can ping the front ends, and all other systems I have (sickbeard, couchpotato, android remote) have no issues sending the notifications.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Interesting... I heard they were moving to the JSON soon. Are you per chance running a newer beta version? This could be the cause.. In which case I'd have to reformat the network commands to fit the JSON methods.
tell me what you get when you run this in a browser...

I ran http://xbmcbase:8090/xbmcCmds/xbmcHttp?command=ExecBuiltIn%28Notification%28mythical%20Librarian%2Cadding%20show%20$tvdbshowname%20to%20library%29%29 from a web browser and it sent the notification as well as posted the ok in the browser.
I ran mythicaldiagnostics and got the same error. I also forced myth to record a show and there was no notification or update to my XBMC.
Other then address changes for trouble shooting, I have not made any changes to the mythicalLibrarian configurations. I have no idea why it just stopped. I should also note, as I realized I forgot to mention this in my previous post, that its not even updating my XBMC, I have to manually update the library right now(not ideal ).
I should note Im running XBMC Live (version 10.1 GIT:unknown compiled March 9th, 2011)
Also I have 3 XBMC machines and none of them will receive the updates/notifications from myth, but all other tools do work fine.
Any other Ideas or sugestions? do you need any more information?

Odd... but there is no communication from mythicalLibrarian.... That is the actual command which mythicalLibrarian sends. I can't really troubleshoot without seeing more. Try using only ONE IP address in mythicalSetup... see how that goes. If it works, then add another one.
- shrioux - 2011-10-07 21:32
I have already tried that, I only have the XBMCbase:8090 address in there right now. I also sent the command you asked me to run, from the box that runs mythicalLibrarian. Its so weird that its only mythicallibrarian that is affected.
