I have 'force US title language' set. I have tried different combos of "popular titles" and "partial titles" options to be set, but the scraper always seems to be selecting the alternative titles instead.

for example: "2001: A Space Odyssey" is set to "Two Thousand and One: A Space Odyssey". Another example is "Zoolander 2". It's set to "200lander". Neither of these titles are the main titles as shown on IMDB.

"Force title" always search on AKA page for the title: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0062622/rele...dt_dt#akas
It use the first AKA title that don't contains "working" (title) in the description.
If you'r from US you don't need to use forced titles (IMHO).

The other two options are only to reduce the search results.

Hi Dan, the big challenge if I don't use force USA title is that I then get the foreign language title, which I don't want. How does it get the foreign language title when the movie name is in english and exactly matches the main title name on the site (minus special chars). What's interesting is the scraper is getting the 'main' title (the one that normally shows up on the main IMDB page) in the 'original title' field, when using forced language. This is almost always the title that I want.


Here a link to the movie page - the main title in in english, and the 'original title' is foreign. Ideally this is how i would like it to be scraped. Not sure I see a settings combo to ensure this happens. What are your thoughts?
