All the IMDB stuff is stored in Myth's database. It isn't grabbed 
automatically, you have to say "look up this movie" in the video manager UI. 
The lookup is based on the file name (minus anything inside "( )" and stuff 
after a ".", see examples below), so yeah, name the files exactly as they 
ought to be on IMDB and they should be found. I have a few that required 
manual intervention, but most of the info for my movies was found no problem.


File: Old School.avi
Search string: Old School

File: Van Wilder (disc 1).avi
Search string: Van Wilder

File: Analyze_That.avi
Search string: Analyze That

(not positive on the last one, all mine have actual spaces now...)
