Default Problem with identifying videos

I LOVE this new feature. I spent a few minutes identifying some unknown videos. But I have a stack of DIVX AVIs that identify but are not added to the TV Shows category. I have rebooted. It does work with some of the AVIs, but not all. And it works with my MKV and MP4 files without problem. Does anyone else have this problem?

I might be having the same problem. I have a bunch of AVI files that Boxee won't automatically recognize and add to my TV Shows. When I use the new feature to add them myself, it recognizes them at first, but won't actually add them to the TV Shows section, and if I quit Boxee and open it up again, it again doesn't recognize them at all.

The specific show this is happening with is The Simpsons season 2. I also have season 1 and it was recognized fine.

I have the same issue. I am trying to re identify the new season of dr. who (season 5 episode 3) which it is saying is from the old series in the 70's. All of cowboy bebop will not identify even when done manually. All of Last Exile will not identify if done manually. And various episodes of Stargate Atlantis season 1 will not resolve.

After searching I choose the tv option (eg: Last exile (2003)(TV)) and input the season number and episode and occasionally check the option that says apply to all in folder. It throws up a status throbber and returns me to the top of the unresolved video list and nothing changes.
