Just released 1.5.1 which has 2 additions:
Currently grabbing the movie set data is not optional, would people want this to be a setting or is grabbing by default preferred?
The optional prefix is useful for skins, such as Aeon Nox, which require the certifications to be stored in the database in a specific manner so that they can automatically display country specific logos. By default this is left blank so that only the certificate data is held in the database.

It isn't optional in themoviedb either. Beta3 will provide a setting 'use movie sets' for your library

I noticed that Olympia had taken out the setting he put in, I was going to email the mailing list to see if there was a reason why this option was removed. Better that the data is scrapped and then XBMC offers to use the data or not
Now just to get MPAA changed to certification+country in the database and we'll be extricated from the unnecessary hard link to American ratings.

Great news about the movie sets. So, once we get the updated plugin, what do we need to do to get the movie sets to group? Will it do it automatically, or do I need to remove the items and scan them in again? Will it work in playlists, too?

I re-scanned in one collection (my kid's Alvin & the Chipmunks movies) as a test. They show up fine under "Movies" but aren't grouped into a set on smart playlists.

I always found the IMDb ratings rather rubbish... Thanks for this!

Thanks again for the best scraper ever made.
I did however notice that it did not pickup rating for a couple of my movies:-
The Perfect Storm
Out of Time
It picks up everything esle though such as cover, runtime, plot etc but not the rating for some reason.
Rating Generated Using: Average Rating
Use the score aggregated from: All Critics
Then deleted the movie & tried again with these settings:-
Rating Generated Using: TomatoMeter
Use the score aggregated from: Top Critics
It still gives me everything except for the rating though tried it on my Windows 7 & also ubuntu live disk so its not a cache issue.
(I tested it with the moviedb scraper & that gave me a rating so I am guessing it is the scraper)
I originally thought that Rotten Tomatto has changed its formatting between the old & new movies which is not the case since Red Dog is newish (2011) & also to be on the safe side I checked another movie today eg. The Patriot and that got the rating so nothing on Rotten Tomato has changed.
Any ideas how to fix this problem?
(I used the Mortstar's repo & installed this scrapper addon a few days ago so it should be up-to-date & using XBMC Eden)
