    Using database IMDB_MB13x - the process is not populating plot and summary fields so not much use when viewing in Media Portal (it does seem to populate other fields ok.) This also happens with the IMDB (IMDB with AKA) database. It doesn't happen with the TMDB database - however that one doesn't automatically process files with dates included, and sometimes automatically picks the wrong film when there are several duplicates with different dates. This didn't happen at some point in the past on my machine, but I don't know when it started. Its obviously annoying as picking up info for films becomes a laborious business with these processing anomalies.

    Yes, I'm busy with a fresh install of 1.16 on some new hardware, and have noticed the same thing. I'm guessing the grabber scripts need updating due to some change at the IMDB end.

    OK, have found a new updated grabber script here that seems to work ...

    "IMDB_MP13x - missing Country and Language

    Perhaps the one that the MP Configuration program retrieves as the latest version should be updated?
