Talk about anything no holds barred, just keep it clean.

Updating to my database is simply inserting the TMdB and IMdB id's into my database so the titles can be linked to their sites. If you look at this title A Beautiful Mind you'll notice the links at the bottom of the description to both IMdB and TMdB next to the green check mark.

The tool I link to is a crude one at best that I had written for myself to use. It updates both my database with TMdB's id's and TMdB's databse with dvdid's. I know there is no instruction and doesn't make much sense, but without any incentive (read interest by others) I never cleaned it up.

To be honest I used dvdxml's api to pull down the dvdid's then queried the MS database for the info for my initial seed. I was hoping to crowd source from there, but haven't seen much interest (other than spammers) so I have fallen short on the updates.
