comment How to get Mythtv to use TMDB version 3 api
How did you install tmdb3.py, and where did you get it from? I saw this version, but haven't tried it yet. I'm trying to solve the same problem myself.

Can you give more details on the "security reasons"? Is it any different if I use sudo to run a shell as the user, as Florian suggests above?

Ahh, of course. I'd forgotten that under *nix not all groups are created equal. ;)
