When you hit INFO on a video you should see a menu that has the
following entries:

Edit Metadata
Search IMDB
Manually Enter IMDB #
Reset Metadata
Toggle Browseable
Remove Video
Filter Display

The second option is the one you want.  The only time you ever need to
supply the IMDB number yourself is when that search fails to find
anything close to the title of your movie on IMDB.
