#11747 closed Bug Report - General (fixed)

Searching for can render the frontend unusable

When searching for a video metadata, may not always succeed rendering the frontend unusable.

Searching for metadata creates a window that can't be dismissed and is showing until data is found. Sometimes no data is retrieved or can take a significant time to be retrieved (several minutes). While the "fetching..." window is showing, you can't do anything

You have to kill the frontend to be able to use it again...

In 382bca5f1a6ada128cd25bd62dcb5ab905d062b4/mythtv:

Use notifications to display the metadata search in mythvideo

The notification can be dismissed allowing to use the frontend while the search is occurring. Failure to retrieve the data will be shown instead of just being dismissed silently.
While a search is in progress, editing the metadata for that particular video is disabled.

Fixes #11747
