I've found two movies (so far) that aren't found when I do a search from within the MP 1.01 Config application, but are easily found by going to the IMDB web site and manually searching. Both of these movies were found when I searched from MP 1.0.

Heartbreak Ridge
Last of the Dogmen

Does anyone have any idea what is keeping MP from finding these movies on IMDB?

    If it cannot find the movie, but you can find it on imdb, do following:
    from the link: imdb.com/title/tt0091187/
    take the tt0091187 part and use it as a string to search in mp. That should then find the needed movie.

    I also suggest using MovingPictures plugin, which has built in much more intelligence into finding the correct movie automatically.

    I tried WIP 157 and these 4 movies now show up correctly. The bad news is I have a vary similar issue with one key difference I tracked down last night that WIP 157 didn't fix so expect a new thread soon.

    Thanks for all the assistance; it is greatly appreciated. Rather than going the suggested route: I decided to do was I had stated earlier. I deleted all partitions (after taking the respective images, of course), then used Partition Master to do a surface scan, on the raw drive. As it came back with zero bad clusters, I thought it...

    How do you check it? And why keep it when we have an IMDBID in the database - it's almost 100% guaranteed accurate identification of the film, IMDBURL is just unnecessary information that will clutter the database.

    OK, this is specifically for people in Belgium (Vlaanderen) who are using Telenet Cable with MediaPortal 2. Next year (Edit: this year, in march 2020) the Telenet provider will stop broadcasting Analog TV and Radio signals on their cable, and make the switch to Digital (DVB-C). The radio signals will disappear completely, so you'll...
