I have my Boxee running pretty well, but I remove my HD for add new movies, but something happen I have 2 DVD rip on my HD and the boxee used to identified them but now when I preform the search for identify the movies said not found. The most strange stuff is it used to work fine.

Maybe not what you were looking for but you can always "flush" your database and rescan. This link (http://boxee.zendesk.com/entries/325781-reset-erase-the-database) will get you there.

I've had several problems today with both the boxee software on Mac and Windows, and the Boxee Box with identifying movies from IMDB. I think there's something going on with IMDB right now. I've had movies that formerly identified with no issue fail to identify today.
I had 3 MAJOR films I ripped from my collection fail to identify. Boxee simply says returns no results when I attempted to identify them, but I restarted a bunch and kept trying and trying and eventually the software populated a list of choices.
Not sure exactly what is going on, but the signs point to a connection problem with IMDB.

I bought a box for my folks for xmas and when setting it up for them I was noticing a disproportionate number of files were coming up as unidentified.
The interesting thing was that when I went to the manual identification screen, I deliberately simplified the search criteria in order to pick something up and still had no luck, instead getting 'no results found' message....that was until I got frustrated and just kept pressing the search button over half a dozen times and all of a sudden 'no results found' turned into a big list of results!
So I think you are on to something about the IMDB and, if I were a betting man I would wager that due to the expected throughput over the current few day, it looks to me that IMDB have set some pretty aggressive time out on their APIs.
