But alas, the 'recognized' auto scan/search results only provides this result:
A Christmas to Remember (1978)
Furthermore, there's also this movie of the same name that is not shown in the scan result:
A Christmas to Remember (2015)
So why did Coollector just suggest A Christmas to Remember (1978), am I missing something here?

In the 'Scan Results' window, maybe there should be a another tab called something like 'Same Name but Different Year(s)' or 'Not Fully Recognized'.
RayMann wrote:So, IMO this is an obvious issue, and likely a deal breaker for me.
Except for this issue, I think Coollector works great, yet because of this issue, I will keep on looking for other solutions.

RayMann wrote:The errors it found were that the year was off
I scanned them again in CMD and all went smooth
RayMann wrote:so I ran them through EMDB and it was much easier
RayMann wrote:As for the idea of comparing every file with the poster in CMD, I find that absurd compared to what EMDB did for me.
RayMann wrote:In the end, this is the the sum of what I'm getting from you here:
I don't take issue with your issues, CMD is fine, I just don't care to fuss over it, if you don't like it move on.
