The call returns a tuple, and the [0] element just indicates if the call 
succeeded or not - since it's succeeding, it returns True every time. The [1] 
element should be the result data, however that's returning 'None' at the 
moment, so the call still isn't working correctly.

I'm looking at it and will let you know.
