Metadata is not retrieved for TV shows if the file name is "too perfect"

There are tools like Filebot (filebot.net) that rename and retrieve subtitles for your video file collection.
A clean file name for a movie after using this tool would be "movie name + year": "Star Wars Episode VII - The Force Awakens (2015).mkv". Movian works fine with this format and retrieves the right metadata.
A clean file name for a TV show after using this tool would be "show name + season/episode + episode name": "Marvel's Daredevil - 2x01 - Bang.mkv". Movian always fails to retrieve any metadata.
Please note that the open subtitles plugin always finds the right subtitles in both cases. Could it be that Movian only looks for S02E01 instead of "2x01" too? It does not make any sense that it cannot find any metadata even when presented with the full episode name, but it works fine with only "name of the show + S02E01 + release name group / info garbage"

Seems to work now based on my tests by renaming files.
This aligns good with 5.2 release that I want to focus on making Movians metadata system a lot better.
Any input / feedback / ideas are most welcome. (But please post in another ticket or on the forum)
