#5886: imdb.pl 'search' doesn't find matches
 Reporter:  J-e-f-f-A  |       Owner:  ijr       
     Type:  defect     |      Status:  new       
 Priority:  minor      |   Milestone:  unknown   
Component:  mythtv     |     Version:  0.21-fixes
 Severity:  low        |     Mlocked:  0         
 I've found that imdb.pl lookups in 0.21-fixes don't always work. The
 search often returns empty, and I'm prompted to enter the data manually or
 enter the number manually.  (to workaround the issue, I do the search
 manually on imdb.com and enter the # myself)[[BR]]
 Some examples: [[BR]]
 There's Something About Mary[[BR]]
 Superhero Movie[[BR]]
 Testing from the command line:[[BR]]
 imdb.pl -M "There's Something About Mary"[[BR]]
 (returns nothing)[[BR]]
 But leaving off "There's" returns movie titles.[[BR]]
 I thought perhaps the apostrophe was the issue, but "Superhero Movie" has
 no puctuation in it (other than the space), and the title is returned if I
 search for just "Superhero".

 A 2nd, and probably un-related issue is that the cover art times out about
 20% of the time.  A 2nd search always pulls it in immediately though.
