Just wondering if there could be an option to pull short rating information so that instead of "Rated R for such and such and extreme something else..." it could just pull "R" for the rating?

+1 this would be preferred over the full contents of the MPAA stuff off imdb.

Is the norm not something like PG18 SNVL where S=Sex, N=Nudity, V=Violence & L=Strong language?
I believe there was a previous request to output this graphically in some way based on the scraper result.
I wouldn't mind something along the lines of what is depicted here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Television_content_rating_systems - if that isn't asking too much... but maybe this opens the door for too much debate...

not every program would be able to display an image like that.

I'm busy with other things at the moment, it would certainly be possible to shorten the rating to :-
G
PG
PG-13
R
NC-17

It would also be fairly easy to display this in a graphical manner as an overlay. I'm not sure I would want to do anything more complicated than this.

I'll look into it in the future.

That simplfied ratings display would be perfect. Anything more complicated should be left to folks making skins and such. I really just want XBMC MC to be great at managing the meta data and assets associated to the media. Graphical representation is, imo, outside of the scope of what I'd look for XBMC MC to do.

As far as scope of request:

G
PG
PG-13
R
NC-17

covers the entire scope of the request. Thank you for looking into it.
