Yes, dupe detection need unique reel #s and / or timecode on the clips

if the timecodes all start at, then every reel# should be unique
or, you can have one reel#, if the timecodes are all different

if two completely different chips have the same reel# and TC, then they will be flagged as duplicates.

[raju bhai] " is there an easy way to give your source clip in the browser a reel name?"

yes, in the browser, find the reel column, and enter a name.
pretty easy ☺

once one had a reel name, you can elect al the clips, right click on the new reel name,
select it from the small menu that pops up, and all the other clips will adopt that name as well.
so IF the clips have unique TC, that will work for you.

[raju bhai] "I have about 50 clips in my browser, and I don't want to ascribe a reel to each and every one"

it wouldn't take too long, but i understand.
here's what i do in these situations:

put all the clips into a new timeline
double click on the first one to open it into the viewer
Command 9 to open item properties
Command C to copy the name
escape to close item properties
Modify Menu > Timecode to open the Modify Timecode window, (actually i;ve given this a shortcut using the keyboard layout window)
in this window the timecode field is selected, but TAB will jump to the reel field
Command V to paste the clip name as the reel name
Enter or return
then DOWN AROW to jump to the next clip (Still in the viewer)

as this is ALL keyboard commands, i have this programmed into a macro in Quickeys, or Keyboard Maestro,
so 50 clips would take a couple of minutes.

[raju bhai] "i only need to apply a reel name for those 1 o 2 clips in my browser."

OK, good idea!

find the clip in the timeline, double click it into the viewer, and give it a reel#
if there are no fields to write in, just click the little check box net to Source TC.
