    I've seen this issue before. I've found that if I move the folder to a new location (not scanned by Moving Pictures), re-run the importer, close Mediaportal config, copy the folder BACK to the movies folder, and then re-run the importer for a second time, the movie shows up. I'm not sure what causes this issue, but this fix always works.

    Thanks RoChess! The IMDB+ scraper looks really interesting. I've wanted a way to force English movie titles, and the grouping of sequels would also be useful. BTW, I checked the Moving Pictures bug trakcer and it appears the latest default IMDB scraper still has the issue.

    One feature I've really wanted in Moving Pictures is an on-screen keyboard to search for movies. The one in Windows Media Center works well, and I think this would make finding a specific movie a lot easier than using the remote shortcuts which I can never seem to figure out. This was mentioned a while back by one of the developers. Is it on the roadmap?

    :D

    Search is coming in the next major release and is already partially coded.

    If anyone is curious, I built a tester app to experiment with different search algorithms and search categories. Obviously the final search will be in the MediaPortal GUI but this gives an idea of the functionality. To work it must be run on a machine with Moving Pictures installed. Also feedback is welcome but I am providing it as is, use at your own risk.

    I wanted to check to see if there still was any plans to restructure the database to improve loading times for large collections when dynamic actors and directors are added? Currently its taking over 10 minutes on load where it says "Updating Categories Menu" This is for a collection of about 2350 Movies.

    Thanks to the team for all their hard work on this plugin.

    I am aware very large dynamic categories have some performance issues and I would like to improve things. Everything takes time though and we have to prioritize.

    Side note though, I don't think the issue is the database structure, pretty sure it's the logic to populate / update the dynamic categories.

    Great thanks for your response, I think you are right the logs show it trying to perform inserts when it is doing that loading. I don't see this issue in the Bug Tracker, would it be helpful for me to add it so other users can vote and comment on it as well?

    Fantastic piece of software. I love having all my films available at the touch of a button and with the new IMDB+ scraper, its even better. The one thing I hate, having to go into MP Config/Plugins?Moving-Pictures everytime I want to add new films. Are there plans to do the same as My TV Series have done and put an icon on the desktop that goes straight to Moving Pictures?

    Keep up the good work guys.
