TVDb's old Api stopped working

Hi,

Can you explain what about the search functionality you feel is broken? On the API? Or the site?

first of all:
I am very grateful for your site which still even when I have problem , remained my main reference
I am showing my gratitude by sending my 260k uniq/day (Today's) users to your site as first priority (96% from 4 countries usa uk...)
imdb is my second priority and I dont use others [tvmaze...] despite of I have their working code
I like tvdb and I support it with all the power I have
so ,
if you see such nagging from me ,its just for solving the issues in tvdb to give users better experience

here is my ""last One hour's issues""" which I already reported it few days ago

I need to repeat that this problem started after your last change for solving time out also changing your search function

................
in last hour these happened:

I sent this title to api:
The Curse of Oak Island [id 276515]
but api got this:
http://thetvdb.com/?tab=series&id=377720 which is The Curse of Oak Island: Behind the Dig
or got this:
http://thetvdb.com/?tab=series&id=363580 which is The Curse of Oak Island: Drilling Down

.

I sent this to api:
American Greed : id 170491
but it gets:
http://thetvdb.com/?tab=series&id=349857 - American Greed: Deadly Rich


I sent this to api:
Vanderpump Rules : id 265577

but it gets :
http://thetvdb.com/?tab=series&id=332405 - Vanderpump Rules: Jax And Brittany Take Kentucky


I sent
My 600-lb Life [id 257540 ]
api's response is:
http://thetvdb.com/?tab=series&id=372331
which is
My 600-Lb Life: Where are they Now?


I sent:
The Feed: id 283993
but it gets:
http://thetvdb.com/?tab=series&id=361038 - The Feed 2019


Live Rescue
to
Live Rescue: Emergency Response

and it continues
.

I asked if you have something in mind which I can give the coder to fix part of my problem

Now you need to check what you did in last upgrade which is causing this issue

I've been having issues since last night. It seems to be up and down. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. It's almost always slow....

Are you getting a time out? Can you send us an example?

hairball is correct
since last night [the time I reported the case , but I thought theres change in tvdb api because for over 1 h , api's response was empty]
BUT
[[[congrats]]] = no time out
which is big achievement for tvdb team

last one [seconds ago]:
http://klikr.org/1dca923b3d03f2d024f076945a62.jpg

[completely empty response from api]

which should be like:
http://klikr.org/78a53a99890299e55c914addf959.jpg

[TVDb has hi priority and when it has a case then no other references]

again: this problem started last night
at this moment , it happens , maybe 1 per 10 cases , or 2
