Could you run the scraper on one of these movies and post a debug log please?

Thanks for the fast response here is the scan for "The Perfect Storm" sorry it took me so long to check the forum
If you need others scanned let me know.

I read almost the whole thread, but I can't find my answer.
I have Eden installed with the default skin. I would like to have the IMDb rating and the Tomato rating on the info page, and if possible the critic consensus. I think this script can scrape that for my movies, but do I need to have a special skin to show it?
Can someone tell me more?

Just updated the scraper to match Team XBMC's IMDb scraper changes. Which are:
- added: Set title scraping from TMDb
- added: Get Trailers from TMDb
- refactored: scraper settings
- fixed: outline was not scraped under certain circumtances

Sorry for delay jman. Unfortunately this is a problem with the way Rotten Tomatoes have linked the imdbid for The Perfect Storm (tt0177971) and the movie in their database. The scraper gets the RT rating by following this link http://www.rottentomatoes.com/alias?type=imdbid&s=0177971 which as you can see is a DVD called 'Big Boats & Busy Harbors' - not quite what we are looking for.
These mistakes between the IMDb id and RT page has been mentioned by many developers here and in some other threads. That specific thread was started 10 months ago and still none have been corrected. I can't say when or if this will ever be fixed. The only way around this is to manually edit the database (crap I know!)

This isn't really possible. Currently the database can only hold ratings details from one provider. However, after the release of Eden the developers are now adding new features. Perhaps put a feature request, in the appropriate forum, to be able to hold multiple ratings from different sources and see if you get a response from other users who would like the feature and developers if they have any interest in adding it.
The possibilities would be pretty cool from a user interface standpoint. Multiple ratings from IMDb, Rotten Tomatoes and Trakt, giving a pretty thorough overview.

Thanks for the response I thought I noticed it picking up that wrong movie in the debug log.
Not sure if this is possible but would it not be better to use "Rotten Tomatto" as primary/first scraper rather than using imdb as you won't loss anything if it does not match the IMDB ID as Rotten Tomoatto has everything you need anyway.
I still have to say this is the best sraper available as it picks up all the movies & gets about 95% of the RT ratings for my movies.
(I have tried just the "Rotten Tomoatto" built-in with XBMC Eden but it fails to get the rating from RT)

The functionality of this scraper has been rolled in to Olympia's Universal Scraper. I would strongly recommend using this scraper from now on as I won't be maintaining this one any longer.
@jman177 - This scraper was always intended to provide only supplementary info' to the IMDb scraper. I believe there is a working RottenTomatoes scraper in the Team XBMC repository now that uses the official RT API to get ratings, etc. However, it has many fewer features than the new Universal Scraper which I would urge you to use.
