"The Man from U.N.C.L.E" not recognized

Hi James,

For some reason this specific file - “The Man from U.N.C.L.E (2015).mkv” - isn’t recognized automatically by The Movie DB inside Infuse. I can easily find it by editing metadata and searching from inside Infuse, but Infuse can’t find it automatically. It’s the only movie where this happens. Maybe a bug with all the periods in the movie-name?

Any thoughts?

This is on our radar to address, and actually affects other titles that include periods (.) or hyphens (-) as part of the actual movie/show title.

A workaround for now is to rename the file(s) without the periods (EG The Man From UNCLE) or use the edit option to search for a title manually. Either way, Infuse will show the proper title (with periods) when viewing details about the title.

I have about 650 movies in my collection. Each time I reload all the metadata, about six movies need to be manually corrected by editing the metadata and picking the correct one. The Man from U.N.C.L.E is one of these. The more annoying example is when the movie is correctly named with a correct year release added, but Infuse seems to want to pick a movie with a similar name released in the same year instead.

Only a minor inconvenience in an otherwise excellent product Firecore team.

FWIW, manual corrections are synced to iCloud and will be restored automatically when setting up a new device (assuming you are running Pro). This is done towards the end of the scanning process, so these changes may not be reflected right away when first installing Infuse on a new device.

Interesting James.
I assume that when you choose to Clear Metadata, these manual corrections stored in iCloud are also erased?
