So this was running the script that's really known as imdb.pl (but you
used a link called tmdb.pl because your system was set up to run
tmdb.pl), right? Otherwise, the fact that it's running some imdb.py
stuff is worrisome--as that shouldn't be happening with tmdb.pl with the
"right" command lines.

No, in MythVideo settings in mythfrontend. The settings, "Command to
search for movie listings", "Command to search for movie posters",
"Command to search for movie fanart" (if you're running trunk), and
"Command to extract data for movies". They're on page 4 of General
settings under MythVideo.
They should all be "/path/to/tmdb.pl" and have the arguments, "-M",
"-P", "-B", and "-D", respectively--and nothing else. Of, if running
-fixes, they would be "/path/to/imdb.pl" with the same arguments, though
"-M" may have some extra junk.
