I'm wondering if there's even a need to automatically add new shows found to the Database.

Here's what happends in theRenemer:
Everytime you drag a show in, it check the Database if that show exist.
If it does, it takes the IDcode (used to be called ttcode) and goes to that IMDb's page.

If it does not exist in the Database, it will Google that show.
Google returns the page in IMDb/

With the titles found, it automatically ADDS that IDcode to your database.

This is done intentionally. ASSUMING the next week, you will want to find that show's episode title again.

Problem I see now is that your Databse can end up very long over time (if you don't do house cleaning).
Loading the database when theRenamer startsup, scanning through the list can be slower than just Googling for that show when needed.
(I'm talking over 1000 rows in your database to see a noticeable difference in speed)

So what do you all think?
DO NOT automatically add new shows to Database? Just let users add manually for problematic filenames?
Google is really really fast in returning a query. Google site has to be up of course.

Having a short list means faster startup, less memory used too.

Anyways, ALWAYS keep a shot list for Database and Force Shownames.
Delete any rows that you know you will never need.
Especially the ones that came with the installer. Those are samples only.
