Metadata from thetvdb.com broken?

Looks like BMT metadata lookup from thetvdb.com is broken?

Or is it just me?

Did anyone pick up BMT from Stuckless or will this be the end of getting metadata via BMT?

Are there alternates?

Is there a method to have BMT pull metadata from another source?
I only see thetvdb.com or themoviedb.org

I checked thetvdb forum and it looks like almost every app is broken right now. The new API (v3) was suppose to allow old clients using the previous API (v2) to work without problem. I don't think it was their intention to break compatibility for older apps using the old API, I think they are just running into some problems migrating everything. Hopefully it will be able to be fixed on their end and we won't need any updates to BMT. That might be wishful thinking though.

Looks like thetvdb got their stuff fixed.
BMT is working again for Find Metadata from them.

I think possibly we are going to find ourselves in this same predicament again in a week or so. I've been getting emails from thetvdb personally indicating I need to update my account info with them or my API key will no longer work after December 31st. I suspect the owner of the API key used by BMT (or rather the thetvdbapi library it uses) is getting similar emails, though it appears the project is no longer maintained (last update four years ago), so doubtful anyone will receive or respond to them. In theory someone could pick up the thetvdbapi project that BMT uses and fix this, but you can longer get the API key version that project uses, so a quick key update seems not to be an option, and moving to the updated API key version appears to require substantial code changes.

Hopefully I'm wrong, however just in case, is there something other than BMT that can be used to pull in metadata and fanart for SageTV?? Though I'd hate to change, I've been happily using it for many many years now.

Thanks.
