What Was New

A new release/update (3.9) to the Personal Server is now available to download.
12/14/08 changed their message format when returning multiple titles for a movie.

A change was made in IMDB_Functions.php to correct that problem and can be downloaded from here for the Personal Server users until a new release is posted. NOTE: Save the file to your hard drive then change the extension from .zip to .php. I only changed it to a .zip to make it downloadable. It is not really a .zip file, but a .php file.
10/6/08 changed their message format for the User Rating field, so Cinema Premiere had to adjust its software.

In IMDB_Functions.php, searched for<b>User Rating:<\/b> and changed the <b> to <h5> and the <\/b> to <\/h5>. Emails have been sent out to Personal Server users on how to make this minor change until a new release is posted.
After not being able to figure out why Cinema Premiere could not connect to, I decided to update the program to be able to retrieve movie information by title as well as UPC. I felt certain that Cinema Premiere's IP address had been blocked by so I could not freely use their information. After spending many hours on the Amazon update, as I was testing it I found importing from was working again. I'm not sure if it had anything to do with the email I sent or if it was just good fortune.

Anyway, I have not spent a lot of time testing the Amazon changes so please let me know if there are any problems.
On Sunday I was notified by a user that when trying to import movie information from, a fsockopen error is received. On Monday, I researched it and could not figure out the problem. The same code is used in the Personal Server version of the movie manager and it still works fine. I contacted Bluehost, my server provider, and they said nothing had changed on their end but suggested that perhaps has blocked Cinema Premiere from using their movie information. I have submitted that question to and am currently waiting on a reply.

To top that off Amazon has completely restructured their XML web services and I am waiting on a reply from them to get the correct format to pull back movie information from them.

Hopefully I will hear something soon and be able to get this resolved. Sorry for the inconvenience.
When importing a database to the Personal Server from the online movie manger, if the time field was empty, an error was occurring. A fix has been made to the import database function for the Personal Server. a new Personal Server update will be released in the near future. If anyone wants the update before it is released, just email me and I will attach it in an email.
