Package: tellico
Version: 2.0 4.3.2 (KDE 4.3.2), Gentoo
Severity: grave
Compiler: x86_64-pc-linux-gnu-gcc
OS: Linux-2.6.31-gentoo-r2 (Gentoo)


first of all, thank you so much for this nice pice of software which I hardly found in the past but later... I hope one day it'll be part of KDE-tree.

Up to now I used upcscan (http://blog.pdark.de/tag/upcscan/). However since the amazon aws changed to that access-key-validation, this didn't work anymore and also I searched for something less "closed". So Tellico basically satisfy me even I found some minor issues (for a beginner not so easy to recognize I have to change to Musik-database before I can search successfully an automatic or questione-dialog would be nice).

However, this report referrs to another issue:
I have successfully setup the amazon data in Tellico and can find music CD's in amazon which can bei merged to the database successfully as well. However, I have many many UPC's which I cannot find. One example is "Taj Mahal" Phantom Blues. It is definately listed in amazon http://www.amazon.de/Phantom-Blues-Taj-Mahal/dp/B0000000M4
Again others I can definately find so basically it should work. However I even found it is a difference if I search in amazon-us or -de (latter one finds more). My CD-collection is ~1000 issues and unfortunately ~25% cannot be found :-/// 

I would like to support you in debugging, please tell me what I could do. I could also pass you the list which I had in upcscan so you can verify (with this bug-report cannot add atachements but per your request I can send you...

Thank you very much in advance for your support

Very best Regards
