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!

Hi,
I came to request some info as to what was available to solve a problem I'm having, but after looking over the many enhancements available I realized I've never expressed my appreciation for what has been provided to enrich and enhance the Profiler experience.  I'd offer explanations as to why I've been so remiss but that would just be an excuse and for this there is no excuse.  So, to all the people who've provided the many fine tools I'm expressing my sincere appreciation and deepest gratitude along with my promise to do better in the future.

Hi.
While looking at the "Twelve Monkeys" profile I noticed an image of an elderly man, Joseph Melito, having the role of "Young Cole".  Something seemed amiss so I checked and there are 2 Joseph Melitos.  I usually update the profile and move on but is there any simple way of notifying others of a minor discrepancy like this?

Not sure what it does but I Googled it and it's available from at least 2 locations.

Hi,
It's not my intention to contribute but it seems likely that asking here will yield the best results.  I noticed in the film True Crime there's an actor named Dan Green.  The picture that was displayed was not of the Dan Green in the film.  The Dan Green in the film is actually the co-anchor (along with Dina Ruiz/Eastwood) of my local NBC affiliate. Whats the best way to handle a situation like this?

NBC Dan is here:

HOLEY MOLEY!  Today I picked up the "Tales From The Crypt/Vault of Horror" double feature and have  a similar situation.
I've decided that for Grumpy , due to the similar titles, I'll enter the data for both titles into a single profile.  For Tales/Vault I intend to create a separate profile for each disc.  This works for me as I generally keep my discs in binders filed alphabetically.

Hi,
Thanks for the replies.  I should have been more specific.  I was adding the newly acquired "Grumpy Old Men/Grumpier Old Men" Blu-ray disc.  Profiler identified the disc and asked if I wanted to add it.  I answered yes.  After downloading the Profile I noticed there was no disc info.  I started to edit the profile to add the "Disc iD" but first had to click "Add disc" and then "Set".
I now see that the disc has a stick on label with a different UPC than the one on the cover itself which in turn is different from UPC that was downloaded.  I'm happy that Profiler knew how to handle the situation.

Hi,
I've always assumed That Profiler looks at the disc ID but today It identified the correct disc but the disc info was empty when I checked.

Hi Bite,
I'm not sure I understand your post but if it involves transferring profiles from your phone to the desktop Profiler you first click "Synchronize with..." in the desktop Profiler "File" menu and go from there to enable that ability.

Hi.
I use an Epson Perfection 3170 Photo scanner.  If I place the cover touching the edge a small amount is cut off.  I uploaded an image to Box but haven't found a way to display it directly here.  Here's the link:

Hi Dela,
I'm not exactly sure where the problem lies but for Amazon activation you click "Tools/Registration information..." and on the new window click on the Amazon icon and enter the key provided.

Hi golf,
I'm going thru the steps as I write this.  I've just added the "DVD Title" block and just noticed that if I hold the left button down with the cursor on "Hold for preview" it displays the current title; but back to your problem.  By clicking "Save & Close" I see THIS



I'm not seeing an image I created in Preview but maybe after I post if not you can get the link out of the text.
Anyway I had a box pop up where I could enter the file name and it was already pointing to the default report folder.  I type3d in a bunch of z's for the name and exited the report creation screen and the found the name in the Report dialog.  I can't even guess as to why you're having the problem you are but if I think of anything I'll post.
