pyTivoMetaThis thetvdb timeouts

Does anyone know if pyTivoMetaThis is an active project?
Have any of you tweaked it yourself to fix problems?

I noticed that this kept timing out for me, and in the code it was doing this:

mirrorsURL = "the mirror url is here, but the forum won't let me post it" % APIKEY
mirrorsXML = parse(urllib2.urlopen(mirrorsURL, None, timeout))

But according to thetvdb, this is deprecated and you can simply hardcode it like this:


After making this change it seems to be working better, but I've only tested it a few times.

Have any of you tweak the code in ways that help make this work better? Would love to hear about any improvements you can suggest. Thanks!

It's semi-active. Most recent version is available here. Let me know if you still have problems.

Edit: I just (14:58 06/23/2015) uploaded a new version with a couple of minor fixes.
