2015-09-13T12:06:04 MCEBuddy.MetaData.VideoMetaData --> Checking for metadata title and series correction
Can anyone help me? I've searched and can't find much. I'm getting the following error when MCEBuddy tries to access the metadata providers:

INFORMATION> 2015-09-13T12:06:04 MCEBuddy.MetaData.VideoMetaData --> Downloading Series details
2015-09-13T12:06:04 MCEBuddy.MetaData.VideoMetaData --> Meta correction results, dont' overwrite title -> False

It's a problem with your DNS. It resolving it back to your own machine where trying to access TVDB

Thanks, I know it's a DNS problem. Just can't figure out where the issue is. I'm able to access the internet with every other program on the same PC, just not this one. Nothing unusual in my DNS settings or Hosts file. Can't figure it out.

Check if antivirus is interfering or try to reboot.

Someone had reported the same issue last year I think. If I remember correctly some third party was interfering. You can try to search the forum to see if it helps.
