Description

For some odd reason the Boxee Box does not like 2012, it would not identify automatically on its own so I had to use .nfo files to tell it were to get the information.

So to get 2012 to identify correctly I had to use:

2012.(2009).part1.avi
2012.(2009).part1.nfo
2012.(2009).part2.avi
2012.(2009).part2.nfo

Both .nfo files are simply one line: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1190080/

So why should you have to create two .nfo files?

You should be able to just use 2012.(2009).nfo as the Boxee Box should realize that's it's a stacked video and there is no need for more than one .no file and no need to have part in the name.

This would make it much easier for the end user and I believe is the expected behavior. But since it's some what broken..
Please support both methods. As in, don't break the current support and simply add support for a single .no file for stacked videos that don't require part in the file name.

The API CMetadataResolverVideo::RemoveYear is whacked. It is finding something that vaguely looks like a year at the beginning of the file, ignoring the properly formatted one in parens, and screwing the whole name up. My example is with 20000 leagues under the sea. Here's what I get in the log:

20000_Leagues_Under_the_Sea_(1954), newName = 0_Leagues_Under_the_Sea_(1954), year = 2000 (cleanname)
