It works like this: For movies it tries to match title + year, for TV show episodes it matches showtitle, episode number and season number. Currently not all informations in the XML are used. To compare items it builds a string from the aforementioned components. So for a movie is "<Title>+<Year>" and for episodes it is "<showname>+S<season number>+E<episode number>".
So in your case the matching movie has to have the title "Steve Jobs: The Lost Interview" and be from the year 2012.
So make sure that you actually have that movie in your database. If that is the case then please post the debug log. Hopefully I can figure out what went wrong. I assume it again (or still) has something to do with the unicode encoding. Do all unmatched movies have special characters in the name like ":" in the above movie?
What you say makes sense to me. In my case, both media folders (TV & Movies) should be exactly the same, since I run a folder synchronization process on them each time they are brought together (i.e., when I get home from traveling). So if I understand what you've told me, if the media folders have the exact same contents, and the libraries have been updated (automatically done when XBMC is started), I don't understand why some items could not be found.
Unfortunately, I've just left on another trip and (damn!) forgot to grab the traveling HD, so I can't examine what's going on until I return later in the week. When I get back, I'll take a closer look at the media folders, libraries, and exported .xml file, to see if I can determine the issue. I'll post back with anything I see, and will provide you with any data you might request to assist in debugging.
Just had a thought...I may be able to remotely log into the home machine and try some tests that way. I'll do so if I find time.
Again, thanks for all the effort thus far...
