If tvdb_augment_data hits a network error, e.g.:

tvdb_augment_data could probably be enhanced to operate the way you say - that is, just run on cached data - but the reality is that pretty much all of Shepherd and its grabbers requires network connectivity, so while this enhancement could be made for tvdb_augment_data, the reality is that its of negligible benefit as the chances are any guide data you have is pretty much hosed.

I'm happy to entertain the idea of this enhancement but by the sounds of it, the only real benefits are if you are running tvdb_augment_data without using shepherd. If that's the case, I'd like to hear more about how you're using it.

Happy to discuss more in the mailing list.
