Thanks for clarifying that T!M, I appreciate that.  I'll save that edit for next time...

Was doing a little research on this, found out what I needed to know at blu-ray.com:

https://www.blu-ray.com/movies/Doctor-Who-The-Complete-Sixth-Series-Blu-ray/29258/#Packaging 

(tried to make a link out of that and the whole thing just disappeared)

It was a Digibook (?) with a slipcase, which is what my Series 5 & 7 are.  In DVD Profiler, would you list that as Digibook and check Slipcover?  I know Slipcover and Slipcase are 2 different things but how else would you list it?  Series 5 is listed as Digipak w/ Slipcover (I think technically it's a Digibook w/ Slipcase.....or is it?). 

Clamshell it is not.

Whatever, I'll make that change next time, I'd like to get the current contributions released, don't want to hold them up by making a change now.

Just purchased Series 6 & 7 (Blu-ray) at Best Buy for $14.99 ea.  I'm in the process of adding episode listings for Series 6 Parent & Children and episode listings for Series 7 Children, and making any other adjustments I see discrepancies with.  I noticed whoever contributed Series 6 originally, chose Clamshell as the case type.  Are you sure?  Clamshell?  I might believe Digipak...  At any rate, mine's a standard blu-ray 4-Disc keep case with slipcover.  I've no doubt it's not the original case type but I was just wondering about Clamshell. 

Thanks.

Currently 1216, counting TV seasons as 1.  I've lost my freakin' mind...

I bought the Once Upon a Time: Seasons 1 & 2 bundle from Best Buy, was going to keep it all together with the shrinkwrap intact and just cut a hole at the bottom to slide the individual seasons out as I needed them, but they wouldn't slide out.  Turns out the individual seasons had a piece of adhesive over the UPC cutouts.  Ended up having to tear the whole thing apart, and just entered the 2 seasons into DVD Profiler individually.  Kept the "J-card", trimmed it down and put it with one of the seasons just because I'm anal.

The whole "J-card" concept is flawed because there's nothing to hold the seasons together unless you can cut a hole in the bottom of the shrinkwrap and slide the seasons out, but then some dumbass decides to tape over the UPC cutout so they won't slide out...

I may be one of the rare ones, but I have never watched anything on Hulu or Netflix. Nor have I ever redeemed a Digital Copy. Nor have I ever uploaded anything up to a Cloud.

The only mobile device I have is my smartphone and I certainly am not going to watch a movie on a tiny screen. Besides I am not sure it even has enough memory built in to handle that.


You're not alone.  I've never streamed either, have no interest in it.  With a library of 1100+ DVDs/BDs, I have practically everything I've ever wanted, anything else I'll pick up as the opportunity presents itself.

I don't have a smartphone, tablet only, can't conceive of trying to watch a movie on the tablet (let alone a smartphone) after watching everything on a 53" WS HDTV.  I know that I can stream to the TV, just don't want to.

Ended up deleting the DVD profile I created, re-created it from scratch. Copied cast/crew from the Parent, entered as much info as I could find on the cover (information on this particular release is darned-near impossible to find online, Walmart doesn't even list it at their website), copied covers from the Parent (currently, back is the same as front.  I left my packaging intact, just cut a hole to slide the case out, hopefully someone else can contribute proper cover scans).  Attached the finished product as Child.  Can't scan the disc ID of the Parent, I don't have a blu-ray player in my computer (no disc IDs exist as of yet for the Parent).  Contributed everything I created, hopefully it passes inspection.

I don't have a problem with creating the child profile by inserting the disc and choosing by Disc ID, then adding to the parent's Box Set Contents, but it's everything that comes after that I don't have enough time for right now, unless there's a fast easy way to copy over all the cast/crew, etc., from the parent.

Damn, I was hoping to avoid having to do all that, I may have to postpone this...

I purchased Star Wars: The Last Jedi (Blu-Ray + DVD + Digital, Collectible Packaging with 6 Interchangeable Covers) from Walmart, there is a Parent Profile in the database but no child profile for the DVD.  There is no DVD profile in the database for this movie.  I have created a DVD profile (specifically for this Star Wars edition) by using an existing blu-ray profile then editing all necessary areas including deleting the existing disc IDs, importing the disc ID of the DVD, and eliminating the existing UPC in exchange for the DVD disc ID.  I'd like to now import the resulting DVD profile, as a child, into the box set contents of the parent, but the DVD does not show up in the list of (Parent) Box Set Contents to choose from.  Is there something else I need to do?

I'm hoping someone else who is certain will stop in and either confirm that or provide other information.  "Syncing" this tablet with anything has eluded me thus far, making a physical connection seems like it would be so much simpler, provided the DVD Profiler app is anywhere near as easy to use as the desktop DVDP.

What do you think about storing the backup on a permanently installed memory card (by permanently, I mean it stays in the tablet unless I need to download/upload pics to it from my computer, then it gets reinserted immediately).  Feasible?

Wow, nobody uses DVD Profiler for Android on a tablet here???

Topic Replies: 13, Topic Views: 3161
Thinking of buying DVD Profiler for Android, wanted to ask how simple it will be to update the database once it's installed on my Samsung Galaxy Tab A 8.0 tablet using a USB cable, connecting between the tablet and my main computer where DVD Profiler is installed, and updating the db using my existing PC backup.  Also, can I maintain the DVDP backup on the tablet SD card?  Don't want to consume that much space on the tablet drive...

Merry Christmas All!  Just realized I've been a Profiler for 7½ years...

I've just submitted a preliminary contribution for the DVD version of Game of Thrones: S7 (883929598564), purchased from Target.  I hope one hasn't already been submitted and this one is redundant (I didn't see any pending contributions for GoT).  If so, please disregard my contribution.  If not, mine will be something to build upon.

I'd forgotten about this, just checked for updates, my CPU usage never went above 50% while checking, even during the 2 "not responding" instances, then went back down to 9-13% while it scanned my collection before announcing there were no updates.

Well, I learned something new today:  That when an update disappears from Pending Updates, it doesn't necessarily mean that it's available for DVD Profiler profile updates.  I checked again this morning, and the full update was there, which begs the question:  What was that, that I downloaded last night?

Another bit of oddness:  I'd been keeping an eye on the new update which would've added the disc info, cast & crew, etc.  Checked the Pending Updates and discovered it was no longer there, so I brought up DVD Profiler, checked for updates, found the Rawhead Rex update, but there was nothing I didn't already have.  No cast/crew, no disc info, nothing I didn't already have.  I tried downloading the update anyway, but my cast/crew and disc info is still devoid of any information.  I tried refreshing the profile from the Online menu option, but nothing showed up.

I wonder what happened to the rest of the update?

Nevermind.  It must've been a delayed update or something, I just got it.  Weird thing is, I've been checking for updates, even after it disappeared from Pending Updates, and nothing.  I have it now.  Maybe I can help out a little with some further updates.

I never got the update, it never showed up as an update to my Rawhead Rex profile, it just disappeared from All Pending Updates.  So what happened to it?

Apparently the profile was declined.  I wish he'd edit and resubmit.
