Import of Video as Recording - No Metadata

So I've seen it eluded to in a couple of threads recently that there is an issue with an updated API with TVDB... So is BMT permanently defunct now because of this?

I ask because I imported a couple video files as TV recordings, and the meta data search doesn't seem to be returning anything after the search is initiated...

Clients: PC Client x 2, HD-300 x 2 (1 Using Netgear MoCA Coax Bridges), SageTV Miniclient on NVidia Shield x 3

They (TheTVDB) are slowly fixing the API used to get data. My understanding is they are working toward fixing all 3 versions of the API, though they are working from newest (v3) to oldest (v1). I'm unsure which version of the API BMT uses, but I think it'll be working someday.

Why they knowingly did this with such a broken API, I'm unsure of. Hopefully they learn their lesson.
