Default Duplicate of Duplicate Entries

This was mentioned a few releases ago, yet still seeing this glitch.

I have a good sized collection of movies, some of which have been rereleased with the same name.

Charlotte's Web (1973 & 2007)
Journey to the Center of the Earth (1959 & 2008)
The Pink Panther (1964 & 2006)

The auto indexing usually tags both videos with the most recent imdb listing and they are located in a folder within the indexed list.

I have tried both ways I know to remedy the faulty entry.

(1) Wrong Video - Change video from within the indexed list, or
(2) Wrong Video - Change video from Browse to attached storage.

Both ways above retag the video correctly, (minus cover art on The Pink Panther (2008)) yet within the folder there are extra entries.

All entries launch a movie, yet it may not be the right one depending which of the entries you select. (Only 2 physical files, yet as many as 3 to 6 entries may be in there.)

Underlying problem is in the way Boxee handles files with the same name even though the files have the (YEAR) appended making them unique.

This issue is on the Mac version and the Apple TV version.

I have had many reindexing while in Alpha, which is expected, yet with the imminent move to Beta I see this as a stopping point for more mainstream adoption when added to the well documented "Special Characters" in the imdb listing not indexing properly.

Mainstream people want to plug it in and it works.

I do realize that in its present form the Apple TV with Boxee will never be mainstream. The Mac version on the other hand needs these issues addressed before Beta IMHO.

Kudos to Team Boxee as well as the other App Dev's
