Craft seems to have a limitation when generating unique URI for > 100 entries with the same title.....

I have a channel with YouTube videos in and some are spread across 140 parts all with the same title, and craft auto appends a -1 -2 etc. on the slug but fails when it reaches 3 digits.

Is there anyway to change this limitation?

At the moment it just responds with this:

Internal Server Error

Could not find a unique URI for this element.

To resolve this we added a new config setting for the upcoming 2.2 release called maxSlugIncrement.

It defaults to 100, but you can bump it if you need it to keep finding more unique URIs.
