Do you have any news about the new API release date ?
Looping through all my series and checking if there is any changes on your side becomes heavy (bandwidth and server load on your side).
The idea of the Update.php with the previous time was so clever, but is useless if we don't have a full copy of your database (which I don't want).
If the new site and API is not released in a near future, maybe it would be better to update the current API to add the serie_id on each episode received from the Update.php. In that way, we could minimize further calls to your api and make the step 4
of your "Future Database Processing
" usable in that case (http://www.thetvdb.com/wiki/index.php/Programmers_API
Thank you in advance for your answer,
