Command-line job not working as PVR job

Hi all

I've got a job that I want to run as a PVR job, it works fine when I run it from the command-line, but when I run it as a PVR job it says there are "0 Matching Programmes". I'm sure I've made a head-slappingly simple mistake, but can't see it. Can anyone please help?

/usr/local/bin/get_iplayer/get_iplayer --category=Films --modes=best --subtitles --thumbnail --output "/path/to/dir/" --file-prefix="<name>" --whitespace --type=tv --get .*

PVR config:
category Films
modes best
subtitles 1
thumb 1
output /path/to/dir
fileprefix '<name>'
whitespace 1
type tv
search .*
