Im having the same problem with some of my TV shows. Most of them are tag correctly but for a few it just don't work... Sometimes i try to edit manually and add the imdb id and then rescan and seems to work, but for most of the time it doesn't

The last part of the IMDB URL is the code, so for Lost the URL is http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0411008/ and the code is tt0411008. In iDentify, just click the Edit Tags button, and you'll see a field for it. Paste it in, then click Rescan Items.
Thanks so much!

Searched the forum before asking the question and found this answer.

Having some problems with tagging the US version of Shameless and Once Upon a Time for some reason.

EDIT: Just tried this for Season 02 Episode 12 of Shameless (US) and I rescan and it still isn't picking it up.

Ive been doing the same thing with IMDB codes for movies and everything works great. Now I am trying TV shows and can't get it to work. Anything different I need to do for TV shows?

make sure in the edit screen for iDenifty its shows it as a TVshow and make sure the S01E01 info is correct than hit rescan

I believe that identify does not look at the IMDB codes for Tv shows. I experienced the same problem with Shameless. Just rename file to shameless.(us).sxx.exx and it will work.

your correct it uses TVdb.com for tvshows im pretty sure so those codes wont help, usually like above changing the type and having the S01E01 or whatever season and episdode works
