So happily having finally gotten all my TV series dialed in [so much of my aggravation turned out to be caused by my using unapproved middot separators • doh! ], I’ve begun working on verifying my movies.
I’d discovered Infuse sometimes gathered the wrong metadata for some of my movies (admittedly due most often to the non-standard way I named my movie files, or their mismatched theatrical release years compared to TMDB’s database), but I didn’t notice because (unlike with TV shows) Infuse (properly) overrides TMDB’s poster and fanart with my local artwork and movie titles with the customized title text included in my local .nfo files.
Originally I’d only notice when I’d try to use Infuse’s nifty search feature to find movies (by title, or actor, or crew member, or movie series collection) and movies I knew were in my collection did not appear. After such discovery, I’d go a little insane trying to figure out what happened (I struggle from severe OCD, clearly).
Eventually it occurred to me that the best way to search for movies in my collection that weren’t picked up correctly by Infuse / TMDB on initial import was to (1) delete my database and batch-rename all my local metadata .nfo and .jpg extensions so Infuse wouldn’t see them prior to (2) re-running a new collection import —— and then looking in my library for (3) titles placed in Other category because TMDB couldn’t find a match and scrolling through my imported folders with (5) in list view (6) with option Show Filenames enabled visually searching for (7) mismatches between my filenames and the movie posters displayed (which would have been downloaded anew from TMDB).
So, here’s my first quandary following this process:
The movie is the outstanding “Moon” from 2009. It’s named “Moon (2009).mkv”. Infuse / TMDB identifies it instead, frustratingly, as “The Twilight Saga: New Moon” (also from 2009).
Edit to add: Also discovered same issue with “Lion” from 2016 (scraping as ‘The Lion King’ even though that movie came out in 1994!) and I can’t figure out a way to scrape the 2nd movie to come out in 2017 with the exact title “Escape Room”…
How do I resolve this?
