I already tried the myth:// source but it is not really working for me. I had some weird results in database afterwards.
I just learned about nfo files and I think that will be my next try. Actually I am using outleradams mythical librarian script to prepare my recordings before they get imported. It is already using mythtv database to do its job and it is not far away to create additional nfo files for the items it can't find at an online source.

I do know that the TMS-based grabber I use gives the TMS program ID, which consists of the "Show ID", followed by the number of the show. So, for example, if you had:
That would be a generic (un-numbered) episode of "Medium", which is Show ID 713516. If you had:
That would a showing of the 113th episode of Medium (In this case, the episode "Psych", which is (in this case), Season 6 Episode 13). The grabber I'm using (mc2xml) doesn't provide the "Original Air Date", but it seems that data is missing from TMS' feed anyway, as it doesn't seem to be in Schedules Direct's feed either.
I'm not sure how/if this helps, but it is good to know.

I could look at putting in support for a regular expression to parse out the season and episode number from the program ID if the original air date isn't set.
Let me know if you'd consider using that. Would be done as an advanced setting underneath <myth>.
