Since a couple of weeks I experience issues with the IMDB scraper in Moving Pictures. It shows HTML tags in the results :/

Please see the screenshots attached.
I use Moving Pictures

Anything I can do?
The Extension Manager shows that I have the latest version...

I think I found a pattern, it seems the error occurs always when imdb has classified the movie as a "TV Movie".
e.g. Andromeda Strain

    Thanks for reporting, now will need someone to maintain the original IMDb script. I suggest using scraper in the meantime (if it does not find a match you might need to add it online).

    You can also try IMDb+ scraper as an alternative to the IMDb included with the plugin.
