This seems pretty basic and I was surprised to find I couldn't do it. It's the most important piece of personal information for any title in your Wishlist.

It is. At the very top.

It's not on mine. It's on the General Information tab for me. Perhaps it's in both locations and I missed it. This is an older screen shot, I found on Google, but the Sort Title is in the same location for me. I can't find a screen shot of "Personal Information". I'll double check when  I get home. If it's in both, are they the same or different fields?



That's the Edit screen, not the Personalization screen. The personalization screen is the bottom option on the right. You can also reach it by pressing CTRL-P or right-clicking on the title and selecting "Personalize."

That wasn't really my question.

This particular edition is already IN the database with an incorrectly capitalized title. The contribution system doesn't see a difference between "Salem'S Lot" and "Salem's Lot," so it doesn't let me contribute a change.

And, BTW, if you enter "Salem'S Lot" into the Capitalization Tool, it returns... "Salem'S Lot," so the capitalization tool appears to have a blind spot for this particular error.

My question is, how does one alert the administrators to correct this typo? More relevant, why doesn't the system recognize the difference between "Salem'S Lot" and "Salem's Lot?"

The Best Buy Steelbook of Salem's Lot (UPC 883929-648481) is spelled "Salem'S Lot," with the second S mistakenly capitalized. I tried to submit the profile to correct the typo, but the contribution system seems to see "Salem's Lot" and "Salem'S Lot" as identical.

Is there any way to flag the typo in the title so someone can correct it?

This is probably a completely impractical suggestion because it would require a complete rewrite of the database, but I think in the long run, it would make the database smaller and maintenance of the database way more efficient and easier.

DVD profile information (UPC, edition, media companies, format, cover art, audio tracks, subtitles, HDR, 3D, region, SRP, case type, anything that could be unique to a particular SKU) should be separate from movie information (title, original title, cast, crew, production year, studio, running time, rating, rating information).

Every DVD, Blu-ray, and 4K release would reference the same data for the movie itself, so that if the cast/crew were correct for the DVD version of Black Hawk Down, it would automatically be correct for the Blu-ray and 4K versions, too.

Admittedly, this might make things like TV shows tricky, because every episode would need a separate entry, but it would, again, make the database more efficient. As it stands now, the database design is pretty inefficient and the database contains way too much redundant information.

If you check off a child tag in the "All Tags" view, the program automatically selects all of the parent tags, all the way up the tree. If you check the same child tag in the "Favorite Tags" view, however, it doesn't affect the parent tags at all.

This should be consistent across both views. My tagging system assumes that parent tags will be automatically checked, so the Favorites view isn't that useful to me, as is.

You would think it would be easy, given that DVD Profiler flags duplicate titles when you add them, but there doesn't appear to be an easy way to see them from the database.

The only way I can think to suggest would be to view the owned list alphabetically by title. That would group duplicate titles together at least.

To break the task up into chunks, filter on Title, Starts With so you can do movies by the first letter of their title.

I think when you say an Atmos track is 7.1 or 5.1, you're talking about the embedded TrueHD "core" track. An Atmos mix is channel independent. 7.1.4 or 5.1.2 refer to the number of speakers in the playback system. It has nothing to with the Atmos mix itself.

I'd like to see an option to indicate if the source for a 4K title is natively 4K or if it was upscaled.

I created a filter for UHD discs (4K selected under formats) and saved this filter. When I reload the filter, however, 4K is not checked under formats.

I'd like to have custom collection categories that, rather than having titles assigned to them, would display the results of a saved filter.

For example, I could create a filter that displays titles from the Criterion Collection. Assigning that to a category would give me a Criterion Collection tab on my Collection List, even though my Criterion titles are still assigned to my Blu-ray or DVD custom collections, where they belong.

This feature would probably need the option to exclude titles from the Ordered and/or Wish List categories.

This is something to just fix in your local as the online won't see the difference.


It can tell the difference when I refresh the profile. DVDP replaces the correct profile with the incorrect one.

However, after I ran the database cleaner and remove any unused cast profiles, this doesn't happen, so it's only a problem if both cast records are still in your local database.

So I guess the trick is to clean your data periodically.

Background:

Laura San Giacomo is credited for Stephen King's The Stand as first name "Laura," middle name "San," last name, "Giacomo."

Obviously, her last name is "San Giacomo" and that's how she's credited everywhere else I can find (Sex, Lies, and Videotape; Pretty Woman; Suicide Kings, etc.), meaning I have two records for the same actor, one correct, one incorrect.

The name is obviously spelled the same in both records, just with San in the middle name for one, and as part of the last name for the other.

So I updated the profile, replacing the incorrect profile with the correct one. When I try to submit the corrected profile, the database says that it has not detected any changes. (Note, I refreshed the profile before I modified it, so the most current profile for this title has the wrong actor record). Apparently, the contribution system can't tell the difference between:

Laura San Giacomo

...and...

Laura  San  Giacomo
