May or may not be related, today I tried to add a new TV show & no results were returned.
I tried "Drive", "Merlin", "Lost" & nothing.
I tried older versions of Media Companion that I know work still no good.
I'm suspecting that the TVDB service is down, even though I can do the a search from the site itself. Perhaps we need a way an easy way test if the site is up or down?
