    I recall there once was a thread by taco i think, explaining how to search for covers with very few characters in the name, can anyone refresh how i get the cover for the movie 9 for example?

    That was probably before the search engined switched ... better for some things, not great for other...

    site:r1db.com 9 - Google Search

    you can try google site search, most our covers should be indexed

    site:r1db.com/covers/ 9

    you'd put that in the search line.

    You can also search by the IMDB ID now...

    If you were searching for 9, you'd find the title at imdb, then check the url
    http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0472033
    In this case, you could search for 0472033 to find "9" --we're still in the process of adding imdbID's to some titles, and some may be incorrect, but for the most part this should help out a lot.
