IMDB pluging and a specific movie import error
« on: January 21, 2011, 01:42:54 pm »
Movie in question: Blackout (III) imdb: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0822791/

IMDB states its from 2007 but when importing the record PVD puts it in 2008

PVD version 0.9.9.21
IMDB plugin version 0.9.6.2

The title is not "Blackout (III)," it's "Blackout." If you use that, you get a long list of items to choose from, one of which is "Blackout 2007."

I know the name its Blackout, as i linked the imdb number also, if you import that record into PVD the date its automaticly set to 2008 instead of 2007 as should be.

The same error its for http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0897347/ The Echo (I) (2008) which its set to 2009. I atached a picture with the error.

The error probably comes from how IMDB shows the release info in the movie page. Example: for http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0897347/ The Echo (I) (2008) the release date on the movie page its 28 May 2009 (South Korea), but when you enter the full release dates the 1st date its France 25 May 2008 (Cannes Film Market)

Okay, I can reproduce it now. I'm not sure what's going on, but you may be right. It looks like when there's an "I" suffix added to the title or year, instead of getting the year from "(Year)" in the heading, it's getting it from the release info in the subheading... :-\
