#226 closed enhancement (fixed)

reconciler_mk2 gets title translation wrong almost every time for certain channels.

Description

The reconciler gets title translation wrong for VH1 and MTV, with the majority of programming too similar for the current algorithm, ending up with something like:

Title: George Michael: Videography Subtitle: Coldplay

rather than Title: Coldplay: Videography Subtitle: Coldplay

Instead of attempting to tailor/workaround each of the 20-odd problematic titles, simply skipping title translation for these channels fixes at least part of the problem.

Agree it's a problem, but we need a solution that doesn't just disable the whole function across entire channels IMHO.

Perhaps a better solution would be for the reconciler to check for the presence of the sub-title in the part of the title before the ":" and remove it from the title.

Replying to kfkzgsbbizk: I have a similar issue with the program 'Oz' on SBS. Or, rather, an program which BEGINS with the word 'Oz' gets translated to 'Oz' (such as 'Oz and James's Big Wine Adventure‎'). It might also be a good idea to implement a 'skip list' rather than skipping a whole channel - so we can tune the reconciler to 'ignore' certain titles? Just a thought!

Closing because Mike is a dev now and must have either address this or decided it's unneeded.
