Downloading tmdb.pl

If you're using MythTV 0.21-fixes, tmdb.pl does not ship with MythTV, so you will need to download the script (as a non-root user in a normal directory, such as the user's HOME directory):

install -d tmdb/MythTV &&
pushd tmdb &&
svn cat http://svn.mythtv.org/svn/trunk/mythplugins/mythvideo/mythvideo/scripts/tmdb.pl > tmdb.pl &&
svn cat http://svn.mythtv.org/svn/trunk/mythplugins/mythvideo/mythvideo/scripts/MythTV/MythVideoCommon.pm > MythTV/MythVideoCommon.pm &&
chmod 755 ./tmdb.pl ./MythTV/MythVideoCommon.pm &&
popd

Installing tmdb.pl

The MythVideo scripts are typically installed in /usr/share/mythtv/mythvideo/scripts/ or /usr/local/share/mythtv/scripts/. The following code assumes they are installed in one of those two directories. If not, adjust the commands as appropriate.

if [ -d /usr/share/mythtv/mythvideo/scripts ]; then
  SCRIPTDIR=/usr/share/mythtv/mythvideo/scripts
elif [ -d /usr/local/share/mythtv/mythvideo/scripts ]; then
  SCRIPTDIR=/usr/local/share/mythtv/mythvideo/scripts
fi
sudo cp -R tmdb/* ${SCRIPTDIR} &&
unset SCRIPTDIR

When you're done with the temporary copy made when downloading the scripts, you may delete the tmdb directory:

rm -r tmdb

Configuring MythVideo 0.21-fixes to use tmdb.pl

Change the MythVideo settings to use the new script, replacing imdb.pl with tmdb.pl and removing tv=no;video=no from the Command to search for movie listings:.

Using the default menu theme, you can find the settings in Utilities/Setup|Setup|Media Settings|Videos Settings|General Settings on page 4/7. After making the changes, the settings should look like:

Command to search for movie listings: /usr/share/mythtv/mythvideo/scripts/tmdb.pl -M
Command to search for movie posters: /usr/share/mythtv/mythvideo/scripts/tmdb.pl -P
Command to extract data for movies: /usr/share/mythtv/mythvideo/scripts/tmdb.pl -D
