    @stdly, that info relies on the scraper-script you used during import.

    You would need to obtain an updated version of said script, or adjust the settings to correspond with what you want, and then rerun the import.

    Not sure if the default IMDb scraper-script has specific support for release-date, or if it re-uses the date-added value. In the latter case you would have to adjust the Moving-Pictures advanced setting away from "current" then. But that only relates to the datestamp of the file you are adding.

    With IMDb+ I added full support for the imdb.com available info for release-date.

    Have the same issue while it worked fine a few weeks ago at least with movies which should have release dates (Tropic Thunder below), noticed it after upgrading to 1.13pre as I did a quick check thru all the plugins.
    All plugins are up to date thru Extensions manager and the version info is:

    Mediaportal: 1.13 pre release
    IMDB+: 2.0.0.281
    Moving Pictures: 1.8.1.0

    @Rick164, can you give me the moving-pictures.log file with debug+scraper-debug options enabled, so that I can see the IMDb+ scraper-script results? (check the IMDb+ wiki page on how to do so)

    Am on a much older version myself, and if I update to debug then you are looking at many weeks lost in me tweaking the new stuff the way I like it :)

    @ltfearme, do you have any ideas otherwise what might be happening?

    @Rick164, sorry, please enable Debug mode in MediaPortal config, as it otherwise does not actually add the scraper-script-debug lines to the log files. Also delete the movingpictures.log right before you re-import "Tropic Thunder", as I otherwise have to deal with a dozen asynchrone events happening at the same time, which makes log files extremely hard to read to locate a problem.

    No need for IMDb+ log, as this is all within the MovPic one (this part is all the scraper-script side, not the IMDb+ plugin).

    Yeah, MovPic scraper-debug needs to be enabled. This causes a single movie import to generate like 1-2MB of logging in the movingpictures.log file, which is why I really just want to get the "one" movie import results, and nothing else.

    Ok, found 1st reason why it does not work for you.

    Log tells me:

    Which means because for you ${movie.release_date} was already set to "28-11-2015 19:29:29" it is skipped from getting updated with your current IMDb+ plugin settings.

    Adjust the IMDb+ plugin setting to update all fields on a refresh (the other option would have been to send movie back to the importer), and let me know if it works then.
