I recently had an issue with XBMC not connecting to thetvdb.com.  I noticed it couldn’t connect to www.thetvdb.com but could connect to thetvdb.com.  I simply removed all references of www from:

Also make sure you pay attention to the regular expressions and remove the ‘\.’ as well.

I ordered a blank 4GB Class 10 SD Card, and some other accessories which weren’t required (dual USB plug, HDMI to DVI adapter).  It all arrived from CPC the following day – top service like always. More »
