Tried renaming the file, as well as moving the offending directory so that files there were not indexed, but PseudoTV seems to know its still there... Is there a way to zero the DB? I tried reading troubleshooting and FAQ, saw no mention of DB or non-english characters. Read a post in this thread where it was supposed to be fixed, but appears not.

Also - re: donations - is it just some arbitrary amount in the paypal? Nothing more formalized than that? Happy to contribute, just want to make sure im doing it right.

--UPDATED: Renaming the file is not enough, you must also remove it from the XBMC DB (choose to play, file not found, remove) and then PseudoTV will move forward. Copper, Hannibal, even SNL have titles that are giving PseudoTV fits. It seemed doable before I hit Conan - every other episode has a '?' in the title...
