I am using SB for many years, but it is no longer working properly for a few months.

SB no longer updates the epsiode list (e.g., latest episodes are not shown under tvseries) and also NFO/metadata for snatched episodes is no longer added (snatching and renaming still works though). See below the error log, which I am getting in hundreds of line.

2016-05-08 17:01:04 SHOWQUEUE-REFRESH :: Unable to connect to TVDB while creating meta files - skipping - We recently timed out, so giving up early this time
2016-05-08 17:01:00 SHOWQUEUE-REFRESH :: Unable to look up show on TVDB, not downloading images: Could not connect to server:
2016-05-08 17:01:00 SHOWQUEUE-REFRESH :: Unable to look up show on TVDB, not downloading images: We recently timed out, so giving up early this time

I am not sure whether this is SB related or may actually be an issue with TVDB.

Curious whether other have experienced this and thoughts how to resolve?

Thanks in advance!

Or sonarr.

Sickbeard is no longer maintained. Hasn't been for over a year now. It's only a matter of time before it's totally dead.
