I recently started a movie collection and have been using the video database feature in MP Configuation to set up movie details. Everything works OK but I am missing the listing of actors. All that appears on the screen and in the database editor is the director's name. I'm using IMDB AKA and IMDB v1.3x as grabbers and currently using MP 1.5.0 with a Windows 7 PC. I feel that there is some set up information I am not providing. Many thanks for any help available.

Problem disappeared when I upgraded to MP 1.6.0 Final.

Actors listing do not work anymore in lower versions because of changes on IMDB pages. As the parsing code was hardcoded in MP source, it's not repairable so in 1.6 all code was extracted to a csscripts and can be maintained independently of MP. So if something is broken again in 1.6, new scripts can be downloaded just as regular movie scripts from GUI or Configuration.

Thanks for the explanation. It's good to hear that 1.6 gets around these problems more easily and presumably more quickly.
