Hi,
I'm not sure about the Canada reference in the post title, but judging by the image, Australia seems more like it.

Hi,
I briefly checked this out and it appears to be a valuable tool.  You have my sincerest appreciation and thanks!  I heeded your advice regarding the need for an exported XML file.  Also, the Help file appears to be an outline devoid of data. 
I was sadly mistaken in the belief that most of my profiles were complete.  I suspect that the best way to handle the deficiencies are to choose a Tab, make as many corrections as possible, export the collection anew, and then move to another Tab.
If I can be of any help please ask and I'll do what I can to oblige.  And thanks again.

Hi,
I just did a profile refresh and noted that there were format changes indicating that three dvds were not anamorphic when they were.  Is there something going on that I'm not aware of?  The only name that I recall was "Survivor".
Also, I understand the requirements for birth years but what type of proof is required to have one removed?

Hi Christopher,
I have a phone withe Android 4.4.2 and a tablet with 6.0.1 and have no problems like you describe.  Clicking on any cast member results in a complete listing of all of their profiles.  I'm always able to return to where I started no matter how circuitous the route or which cast member I choose.

Hi Ronnie,
An alternative to Profiler Android!  I have an old phone on which I've never been able to get all the Profiler data to load.  How does it handle incremental updates?

Hi kd5,
It seems that if you had a program that could extract the needed info from the Windows OS version of Profiler and convert it to the format used by the Android version, along with any needed metadata, that would work.  That would be simple but to my knowledge no such program exists..

Works fine now.  Previously, after Searching and clicking on the appropriate title a blank area would be displayed where normally you would see the IMDB webpage for that title. But after clicking the "Movie" tab and "Scan Page" the data would be displayed.

Same indications as TraunStaa.  However, after clicking Scan page the Cast and Crew data is displayed and can be copied.

I recall watching the broadcast in a department store window in downtown San Francisco a few years back but this is from Wikipedia:
"On March 7, 1955, NBC presented Peter Pan live as part of Producers' Showcase (with nearly all of the show's original cast) as the first full-length Broadway production on color TV."

Hi,
I just checked and was not able to change the text color either.

Hi,
While checking this title I noticed that the images for Tom Holland and Steve Ditko are incorrect.

Hi,
While updating the database on my tablet I saw the "0 connected" message at the bottom of the desktop Profiler screen.  I assumed the transfer had failed but I was distracted and when I returned the transfer was proceeding.  I suspect that, previously when seeing this message, I assumed the transfer had failed and restarted the process.  My hope is that after seeing the subject line anyone who experiences this will be advised.

Hey bs,
If that were true I'm sure we would have heard about it long before now.

I don't suspect either program.  I'm sure it's totally unrelated.  From what I can determine when Windows did an automatic check for updates it discovered something it didn't like and triggered the problem message.  Sorry for not making that clear.

Hi,
I apologize for the delay in responding.  I've checked both "Database Query" and "Find Double Dips" and know that both do what I want but haven't checked either thoroughly.  While checking I got a warning that my copy of Windows was not genuine accompanied with a black screen.  I've tried various things but just end up looking at a blank window or one with an unhappy smiley face.  I'm looking forward to investigating both programs.

Hi,
Thanks for pointing me in the right direction.  I suspected that "Datbase Query' could help but in the description I couldn't be sure.  After your post I checked again and clicked on Screenshots.  It shows it checking for duplicate titles.

Hi,
I've been adding Blu-rays and was wondering if there is a simple way to check if I already have the DVD.
I put my discs in binders and haven't been checking for duplicates as I've added the Blu-rays.  I have separate groups of binders for the DVDs and for the Blu-rays.  I can view my collection alphabetically and look for duplicates but I'm wondering if there is a simpler way.  I have over 6000 discs.

Hi media,
I don't understand in what way you think I was being dismissive or that I was requesting that someone write code for me.  From your post it seems that it appeared that I was requesting either or both.  I wasn't.  I reviewed my posts here and am truly baffled.  The CCV plugin did exactly what I was looking for but I wasn't aware that it had that capability.  I do regret the confusion.
After viewing the images exported by the CCV plugin, even if it isn't complete, I quickly realized that my idea wasn't a good one.  Not infrequently, when adding a disc I notice discrepancies or images that are not particularly evocative of the actor.  I thought that simply viewing a list of the images would allow me to make notes as to what images I'd like to change.  As it turns out my focus has only been on the main actors and I really have no idea who most of the supporting actors are or what they look like.  The exported list makes no such distinction.  I'll just continue what I've been doing.
Jim F.

P.S. I just reviewed my posts and saw my reference to "the master cast image database".  I was referring to a file or folder on my computer where all the images were stored.  Perhaps this was the confusion?

P.P.S. Referring to your last post items 1 & 2.  These appear to refer to what I have done or am currently doing.  I hope this posts clarifies that was I was looking for an alternative.  Please ask if this doesn't satisfy your request for an explanation.

Hi,
I'm looking for a way to view the images I have, not some Invelos master list.  Whenever I add a disc I view the images and replace any I'm not satisfied with.  As usual, my tastes are at some variance with the rules here.  If someone appeared in thirty or forty movies when they were in their twenties and did a cameo when they were 90 I'll choose an image that I find most evocative. Something like that anyway.
Using the CCV plugin I haven't been able to do a compete export.  It creates a 249MB file and locks up.  I don't know if the problem is due to a limitation of the plugin or some bad data on my system.  Still checking.

H mediadog,
I was briefly overwhelmed by the replies and when I saw the reference to CCV plugin I had to try it.  I didn't realize that there were pictures accompanying the names when a profile was being edited.  They're a bit small so that's not ideal.  Where can I find the "Headshot Master Database" you referred to?  That sounds promising if the CCV plugin doesn't complete.
Even though I subscribe to a topic I'm never notified.  I have to check into that also.

Whew!  All is well with Profiler.  All of my images were replaced with blue rectangles after I had the freeze up.  I immediately exited Profiler and did a complete database repair and no problems now.  The exported images are exactly what I was hoping for and alphabetically they went from A thru Z.  I didn't know in what order the profiles were being scanned so I guessed alphabetical and chose a profile near the end with a character with an image  in a single profile.  The actor showed up in the exported listing.  I next guessed by collection number and an actor in one of the highest number profiles did not appear in the listing.  So the listing is not complete.  I'll try to minimize all background tasks and try again.

It seems that the CCV plugin us the answer.  I have it running now.  It appears that it's extracting the data from each profile.  Oh no! It appears to have frozen at 2489 profiles.  I was really hoping to extract the data from the master cast image database  if such a thing exists.  I didn't want to have duplicate images.  I'll investigate further.

Hi,
Is there a plugin or tool that would let me view the Cast pictures along with the names without having to check each Profile individually?

Hi media,
No, I haven't found what I was looking for yet.  After scanning the the available tools I just wanted to express my thanks to all who created them.  I've only used your BulkEdit on several occasions when I made major changes to how I have my discs categorized but it saved me days of typing each time.  Most of the addons address needs that are not mine but that hasn't diminished my appreciation.
I'm going to start a new thread with a title that describes, at least in general, what I'm looking for.  When I'm scanning titles in a forum I appreciate seeing titles that give info about what the post is about rather than something like "I need help!
And my specific thanks to you for what you've provided!
Jim F.
