    Since upgrading to the latest version of MP2 I have noticed that no newly ripped movies will appear in the library unless I add the IMDB "tt" code at the end of the folder name. Previously using the format TITLE (YEAR) worked 90% of the time. Now it doesn't.

    Obviously adding the tt code makes things foolproof, but it seems a bit necessary when usually the combination of title and year is also completely unique.

    IMDb is returning more than one hit for each of these names. Mostly TV versions, yet not unique.

    Don’t know how @henso implemented this.

    To be honest I'd prefer the option of a completely manual import process. At the moment I have to create the folder name that I think will work, wait for the import to fail, then tweak the folder title until it works. Then sometimes (certainly in the case of Stan And Ollie and Chrisopher Robin, re-import so that the artwork is picked up.

    An option to say "import the movie in this folder using this title" followed by the "re import" dialogue would cut out most of those steps.
