Short story - I only discovered MC a couple of weeks ago, used it to scan my films for xbmc which it's done brilliantly. Today I noticed that films were being scraped with their French title - I live in France, but all the films / titles / folders are in English. That wasn't a big deal because MC was still picking up the alternative titles, so I could just toggle to the English.
From this evening, though, when I scrape a film I'm still getting French titles, but now with no alternatives, and plots, ratings, genres etc are all blank. I've tried a fresh download, and tried it on another pc, with the same result. TV series are still working fine. I wondered if anyone else had a similar issue (the lack of plots, info etc rather than the forrin language).
Thanks in advance for any replies

Dave.

imdb changed the format of their pages, looks like the scraper needs to be changed to allow for the changes.
