[FIXED] Metadata from history - ERROR: Could not extract a valid PID from ARRAY(0x321a2f4)
#1
I've just discovered the existence of the various metadata options and so was trying to download it for all my historical downloads.

However I'm seeing this error for both metadata and thumbnails, using the cmd examples in the Help docs:

>get_iplayer --metadata-only --metadata --history --skipdeleted ".*"

The metadata and thumbnails download fine for specific programme PIDs, so any ideas what's wrong?
