We were made aware of a situation last week where special characters where causing some movies not to show up correctly in Windows Media Center. For instance, if the movie title had an ampersand (&), colon (:), slash (/) or a few other characters, Media Center would not show any info for the movie.

The easiest solution was to just remove those characters from the xml file just before you download it. So, when you receive your dvdid.xml, all special characters are stripped from the title.

If you have any movies experiencing this problem, our suggestion is to download the dvdid.xml for that movie again. Or you can just manually edit the dvdid.xml you already have. Your choice.
