Kodi is having problems with TVDB's API - https://forum.kodi.tv/showthread.php?ti ... pid2918567 - where an XML response seems to be expected, it's getting JSON back (for, for example /search/series?name=Magic%20Knight%20Rayearth)

Has something been changed in the last couple of days?

I'm not really particularly familiar with Kodi's inner-workings, nor TVDB's api, I just want to get library indexing working again.

It looks like you're expecting an XML response from the v2 API, when in fact this response comes from the v1 API. If you're expecting XML and getting JSON, you should switch to the v1 API.

This was working just fine before, and as far as I know neither the client software or the calls it's making has changed.

Was something changed on the API recently? Because if it was, you've broken downstream
