    **Edit; This is actually still happening on 1.0.1.16489, but is not listed in the bug report form options.

    I have a whole bunch of TV titles that are not automatically resolved by Boxee. When I attempt to manually identify them, I can find the title in search, but when boxee attempts to fetch the meta details of the title, it returns immediately with "Sorry! Unable to bring the movie details".

    This bug has been happening for about 3+ months now, I see various reports of it being fixed but it never is. I also tried nfo scraping which is apparently implemented (BOXEE-4303), but that also does not work.

    Here are some of the examples of the titles that are unidentified/unresolved..

    ./South Pacific 2009 720p Blu-ray DTS x264-SSG
        South Pacific E01 2009 720p Blu-ray DTS x264-SSG.mkv
        South Pacific E01 2009 720p Blu-ray DTS x264-SSG.nfo

        South Pacific E02 2009 720p Blu-ray DTS x264-SSG.nfo

        Stalingrad.2of3.The.Kessel.Xvid.mp3.avi
        Stalingrad.3of3.The.Doom.XviD.mp3.avi

    ..and many more.

    Please let me know if I can provide any more information, This is the #1 bug for me in my boxee experience.. the recent improvements in filtering and local content display have been great, but please please please fix this awful bug.
