Most movies I have use a full stop to seperate words in the title. When Media Companion scrapes it leaves these in, which is usually ok.. however some titles will return a different IMDB page reporting > 500 partial matches if you scan with the full stop. This causes a blank nfo file to be generated with no error. Either an error or the scraper removing the full stops (which I believe XBMC scraper does) should resolve this.

Examples include:
The.Dark
The.Man
The.Return

Further to the bug where IMDB reports > 500 matches not being handled, I am finding that scraping with the full stops is causing many other movies to come back with inaccurate results where removal of the full stops results in the correct scrape. eg:
rambo.first.blood scrapes as Rambo (2008)
rambo first blood scrapes as First Blood (1982)

Given that pretty much every movie out there is coming with full stops to seperate the words in the name, I would like to ask if the scraper could be updated to strip out the full stops. I believe this is the approach XBMC uses and it certainly gives much greater accuracy.

Cheers,
