Hi,

I have a smartlist that matches all items in library and "Only Duplicates" is set on "On".
It mostly tends to do behave how I expect (i.e. identifies duplicate files I have), at times it fails to do so. I am usually able to figure out why that is the case (e.g. one comic number is "1" the other is "01"). However there are occasions when I am just unable to understand why the duplicate files was not identified. I tend to sort out the issue manually and forget about it.

This time I have decided to attach the comicinfo file for both comics and see if anyone can help me understand why this is happening :) .

Could it be the Black/White setting difference? The first file says yes, the other says no.

That was very well spotted :), however it still does not get picked up :pinch: (after modifying both appropriately).

I really do not understand why on some comics duplicate identification just fails :huh:

The duplicate matcher checks for Series, Format, Volume, Number, Language, Month, Day, B&W.

Thanks :) - great to know exactly which field have an impact.

Interestingly today the two comics were picked-up as duplicates. Nothing has changed since I removed the B&W status 2 days ago (as per sykoone suggestion). It looks like the change took sometime to come through.
