I'd like to confirm bug ID:2891257.
I can't fetch several entries from IMDB (although entry mentioned in bug ID:2891257 (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0374180/) imports to my database successfully). In my case, the example entry, which imports improperly, is http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0074483/ - only Plot field is imported, all other IMDB-based fields are empty. I can document it with similar screenshot, as in bug 2891257.
I have videoDB fetched yesterday (13 dec 2009) from CVS. I have noticed this behaviour on two separated servers. One of them has php-5.2.0+dfsg-8+etch16/apache-2.2.3-4+etch11 (Debian) and another php-5.2.1-6/apache-2.2.14-9 (RPM-based PLD Linux Distribution). Strange thing is, that when I tried to import http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0074483/ to demo database (http://videodb.net/demo/), everything imported properly (as seen http://videodb.net/demo/show.php?id=831947, need to login to see this entry).
I have no idea what is going on. Looks like demo installation works properly, and CVS version is somehow broken - it simply doesn't work with some entries, but with others works just fine (at least for me ;)). I have reproduced this situation (doesn't work in my videoDB, but works perfectly in demo version) with theese addictional entries: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0003805/ and http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0077369/.
