Hi Billy, I've also had this issue with the previous 3.x

I'm having a few mis-scrape problems with a few films, and any film with an ampersand '&' in the title,

Dumb & Dumber
Fast & Furious

I end up with Dumb & Dumber (0000)

I have all my movies named as per the IMDB e.g

Dumb & Dumber (1994).avi
Fast & Furious (2009).avi

It's not a big problem, because you can simply select 'editor' and do it manually, but with over 1,500 films its a bit of a chore to check each and every one for a mis-scrape Shocked

When using the last of the 'old' generation [2.2.92] I do not have as many movie mis-scrapes Question

This is a bug in the imdb.dll library which I have just fixed.

I will upload it tomorrow.

The program has been rewritten, overall it is much improved, although little things like this can slip through, they are easily fixed once reported, and this is the first I have heard of this issue.

Hi Billy, many thanks for the quick reply. I'll await your update and then I shall unleash it on my test folder again. Would you still like a list of films its struggling with? It may help as all my films use the IMDB naming convention.

Oh, I've thrown a few shekels your way tongue keep up the good work, this is a top piece of software cheers

I've just uploaded the new imdb scraper library, its in the announcements forum. It fixes the issue of movies titles that contain the "&" character.

And once again, many thanks for your generosity.
