    Hi! I noticed that IMDB+ / MovPics still downloads Finnish language covers if they are available instead of the English ones. Is it possible to fix this behaviour as well? Thank you!

    Can you please redo a clean import (keep deleting movingpictures.log until things have stabilized on background import tasks) on just one movie? That last log file took me longer to debug due to the extra asynchronous stuff from other tasks mixed in.

    It could also be that your cover art is grabbed by another scraper-script source if you have others active, such as TMDb.

    v4.10.4 released -- Supports MPAA Unrated-rating by converting it to NR to rely on the existing MediaPortal logo "NR.png" image.

    Example movie is "Color Out of Space (2019)", but I am sure there are many others.

    For those (like me) preferring the old fashion logos in their skin, I've Photo-shopped the logo and attached are the white and grey version to use as you please for your respective skin (rename to NR.png).

    For Titan skin this would go into: C:\ProgramData\Team MediaPortal\MediaPortal\skin\Titan\Media\certification

    v4.10.5 released - Include "Not Rated" for NR-rating match as well.

    Tried to look for more "Unrated" movies to do an update on, and good thing "1 (2013)" was right near the top, because that one is marked as "Not Rated", so had to adjust IMDb+ to account for that scenario as well :cool:

    Need help, as in testing v4.10.5 ran into "The 300 Spartans (1962)" which is rated as "Approved" as per the old original MPAA Hayes code.

    Technically it is not "Unrated/Not Rated" to qualify for the same NR conversion.

    Based on: - IMDb it seems a "G" rating would be fine, but I don't think I have enough old movies to justify that conversion on all encounters.

    Suggestions?

    Anybody interested in cleaning their collection, I used "SQLite Expert Personal" to have a copy of MovPic dbase open, while MovPic config was also open with the real dbase (to avoid corruption).

    Queries used:

    SELECT certification, COUNT(certification) FROM movie_info
    GROUP BY certification

    That gives a quick overview on all the different ratings your collection currently contains.

    SELECT title, year, certification FROM movie_info
    WHERE certification = 'Not Rated'​
    ORDER BY title

    Which then allows you to narrow it down to each individual rating that seems out of place. Entering the first few letters without any break immediately jumps to that movie when you are inside the "Movie Manager" tab with focus on the movie list.

    Another option obviously is to copy "NR.png" to "Not Rated.png", but also keep in mind that ratings often update.

    On a small collection you can always just use the IMDb+ plugin option in GUI to mass-refresh your entire collection while watching a movie. Once I push out a new plugin update I will add more filter options to refresh a large collection in sections. It currently supports refreshing in chunks based on starting letter of the movie, and plan to expand that with Genres, Ratings/Certifications, and other grouping that might be useful.

    The comedy "Zack and Miri Make a Porno (2008)" was in my collection with an "X" rating from an old import. In most European countries 11-and-older are allowed to watch that, but in prude USA they prefer to freak out over nudity with gore and violence totally fine :censored: It is now refreshed to an R-rating which is more appropriate for that movie, but I wonder if they needed to do a few edits to get reassigned.

    Sorry, I forgot to report back on this. The problem was that I had themoviedb.org as the first online cover art source. When I changed this to IMDB+ with imdb.com as the second source I now get proper English language covers.

    That would do it (y)

    At least it works now, that is the most important part.

    There are advanced settings to allow multiple sources to provide cover art, and then you can switch to the cover you like in GUI. I've mapped the fast-forward and fast-rewind buttons on my remote control to that whenever I'm inside the GUI navigating the movie-list. FanartTV is another nice source you can activate.

    No idea why I never noticed it before, or if something happened, but recently caught weird sorting for "The Pink Panther".

    GUI showed it as:
    • The Pink Panther I
    • The Pink Panther II: A Shot in the Dark
    • The Pink Panther III: The Return of the Pink Panther
    • The Pink Panther IV: The Pink Panther Strikes Again
    • The Pink Panther (Remake) I
    • The Pink Panther (Remake) II
    • The Pink Panther V: Revenge of the Pink Panther
    • The Pink Panther VI: Trail of the Pink Panther
    • The Pink Panther VII: Curse of the Pink Panther
    • The Pink Panther VIII: Son of the Pink Panther
    And reason for this is that Moving-Pictures strips any weird character from the SortBy order.

    That means '(Remake)' becomes just 'Remake' which then gets sorted between the 'IV' and 'V' Roman Numeral entries alphabetically.

    Changes made to Moving-Pictures will allow this behavior to be configurable in "Advanced Settings" under the "MediaPortal GUI" > "Sorting" section.

    Default entry will be [^\w\s] that looks for any non-alphabetical character that is not a space.

    Changed that myself to ["] as I do still want quotes to be removed from those made-for-TV-movies, but not remove the :[]() characters that influence IMDb+ sorting, and the results are now:

    1599268456729.JPEG

    @ltfearme will release new MPEI on Moving-Pictures in due time that will contain the update.

    Changes made to the sorting expression can be tested very quickly. Switch to the "Movie Manager" tab. Select any movie in the list on the left side, and use CTRL+A to select all the movies. Then under the Gear icon in the top right you have the option to update the sortby field. This will be done almost instantly.

    PS: If you manually verify the sortby field, keep in mind that it is also forced lower-case to avoid any issues with case-sensitive sorting.

    MediaPortal development group reached out that v2.3 will contain script-engine support, so that should technically mean I can adapt IMDb+ to also support MediaPortal v2.3+ the way it works for Moving-Pictures.

    Just a matter of finding time :whistle:

    I've noticed IMDb+ on occasion failing to import. Thought it would survive the new imdb.com updates, but the changes must have been more extreme. Will try to fix it this weekend if I can catch a failure more consistent with HTML source logging active.
