    Hi there -

    Im running Moving Pictures 0.6.5 with Media Portal and LOVE it.

    But I am having a problem with the auto selection of movies. All of my movies are in the format Full.Movie.Name.mkv . It seems that with this format, most of my movies are autoselected. What is happening on some though is that if the movie is an alternative name of another movie, that other movie is chosen as a good match. A good example of this is "Class.Action" (the one with Gene Hackman), which gets autoconfirmed as "North Country" (which I didnt know is also called Class Action).

    Is there anything I can do when naming my movies to force the selection to be the correct movie?

    Hrmm.. well there is nothing you can really do in the plug-in to prevent this. I think the only option would be to manually modify the IMDb scraper to not retrieve alternate titles. You make a good point though and I opened a new issue for this suggestion. It wont make it into the 0.7 release but we will implement it for 0.8.
