    Since a couple of weeks I'm experiencing slow connection to the TVDB.com leading to a lot of time-outs, see picture below.

    I'm not the only person having this problem according to the forums at TVDB.com, so it must be something at their end.

    My question is: can we change the default time used for connection time-out in MP TVSeries, make this longer so I the program can work without my continuous intervention again. At then moment I have to re-import 4 or 5 times to get all the series info that was missed due to time-outs on the previous imports.

    Doesn't make sense from my point of view. Today I tried to add some new episodes to an existing season via browser. After 1 hour I gave up because the website was down every 5 minutes. theTVDB.com has become unusuable. As stated here (http://forums.thetvdb.com/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=12205) they have upgraded their service contract with cloudflare. This should result in much faster response times for everyone. But it doesn't.
