    MediaPortal Version: 1.2.0
    MediaPortal Skin: DefaultWide

    The new behavior of MP is stripped slashes (/) from string with movie titles. But if movie MUST have slash it's bad, for ex



    Nine 1/2 Weeks after stripping becames Nine 1 2 Weeks

    Face/Off becames Face Off
    etc

    May be make stripping more flexible or configurable (user add stripping subwords manually). There is no logs coz only visually problem.

    This is related to fanart handler and how to handle forbidden filename chars in titles when looking it's fanart file. I will see with cul8er how it handles titles like that when searching it's fanart filename.

    It's not a problem to revert this but then we loose fanart in cases like that.

    What's about creation of common function, which be used MP abd Fanart handler. This function stripped all forbidden chars from title for CREATION and SEARCHING fanart files. So no need to strip chars from title, only when need to display fanart, MP (or pluging) uses this function to get stripped string and by this string it searches fanart file.

    OK, cul8er is preparing new version of fanart for RC1 which will handle forbidden chars (just watch this thread https://forum.team-mediaportal.com/...dler-plugin-v2-2-5-503-mp1-2-beta-only-96533/).

    I will revert changes for movie titles to an original titles after he release 225 alpha version. What will be needed after patch is refreshing fanarts because of new filenames for database view.

    I also didn't like too much char substitution for titles but didn't have a choice or fanart will not work in database views.
