What I'm asking, if it's not too much trouble is at least to have an option to choose the title.. besides the scraper already connects to imdb.. And I think it should be easier, because IMDB automatically shows the title of my country because it figures it out with my ip, so, when the scraper scrapes imdb, it will be looking at the title that is right for my country.. Maybe the option could be something like "Show movie title based on your region", and what it does is to scrape the imdb main title, as it automatically will appear translated, in a few words, fetch the imdb title.. I would like to see it implemented if it is not too much trouble..
what you are asking for is for a combination of scrapers, which in essence is a good idea, although not very easy to implement: you are suggesting to do a first search on a larger database, and then go with the result (assuming unique, which is not always the case) to FA and perform the FA query. any movie scraper works almost in the same way: it first checks for the main entry in the main database (usually by title only), and then IF IT'S FOUND it queries other databases for data completion/enrichment. since this is the FA scraper, the main database it uses is FA, and the titles stored in it are only the Spanish and the original version, not any others. so if you want to use the FA scraper you will have to stick to FA's restrictions.
I understand your concern, since there are a few things I have locally which aren't found on FA although IMDB has them (I truly can live with these ~5% of my local items). unfortunately there's no way on XBMC to search 2 different databases and filling your local database with one information or the other by prioritizing them or depending on whether you find information in one or on the other database. if what you look for is always found on IMDB, then you should use IMDB as your main database, hence the IMDB scraper should be the one you should use, and if you want to add FA information then you'll have to ask the IMDB programmers (or program it yourself) to include a FA enrichment function.

I have seen a couple of "network error" messages lately, but the scrapper does work fine most of the times, so I'm pretty sure it's a matter of a particular query that is not being able to perform punctually. if the problem persists you will have to debug it, and seeing that debug log we would ultimately be able to help you solve it.
