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.

If it does get declined, just untick Overview and re-submit.  I like your cover images...

I'll have to check my CPU usage next time there's an update, I just tried but there weren't any and DVDP didn't go over 4% while checking.

It seems to me almost as if it has something to do with the online server more than anything having to do with CPU usage, my computer doesn't hang like that in general.  And since this has been going on for at least the last couple of versions of DVD Profiler, it seems as though it's not necessarily an application issue, although I suppose anything is possible.

This has been going on for awhile now, at least the last couple of versions of DVD Profiler, possibly longer.  Whenever I check for profile updates or update my online database, DVD Profiler will slip into "Not Responding" mode for a few seconds, then resume updating.  This usually occurs a couple of times during each updating.  Any ideas what the problem might be?

Like many others here, v4.0 has not presented any problems for me whatsoever.  Just follow recommended upgrade procedures (db repair, backup).  While I care about the release notes, it's certainly not a deal-breaker for me.  I'm happy with DVD Profiler, and happy with this trouble-free update.  Whatever bugs may remain, I'm sure they'll be addressed in good time.

Absolutely, I still recommend DVD Profiler.  I haven't found any better and I tried numerous DVD cataloging software applications before I found DVD Profiler.  Re: v4.0 (build 1762), I haven't had any issues with this new version whatsoever.  Upgrading was problem-free, just make sure you follow recommended upgrade procedures (db repair, backup).  I like that you can select to update whatever you want to, you can lock aspects of each profile so they won't change, you can preview everything and opt out of whatever updates or parts of updates you don't want for your profiles. 

I still have fun with DVD Profiler, tinker with headshots regularly...

Still a time-consuming enterprise which I haven't enough of to justify attempting it.  I've created profiles for many a DVD/BD in DVD Profiler, but my only attempt at creating the cast/crew profiles was a nightmare which I prayed I would awaken from.  While I'll still create profiles for videos not in the database, I'll draw the line at cast/crew and even episode info for the children beyond the basic listing in the Overview.  I'll leave that to much more capable hands than mine.  I just wish someone would take the time to actually do it.

You're welcome!  I just wish someone would create the children for Season 6.  I have all 7 seasons and Season 6 is the only one without her children.  I could scan the discs and tie them to the parent but I don't know how to create the cast/crew listings for the episodes, nor do I have the time it would take to create them from scratch.  I'm surprised nobody has ever taken the time to do that.

Continuum: Season 4 is like that too.  I tied the children to the parent but they're blank and I don't have the time or the knowhow it would take to create the cast/crew listing from scratch...

Ahh.  Thanks for that.  When the contibution makes it through the system, I'll update the profile I created, I was starting to get concerned no one was buying the DVD versions anymore, I had my copy in hand, actually started watching it already, but couldn't enter it into DVD Profiler.  It's hell not being able to add it into my collection...

I've been waiting for someone to contribute this profile for the DVD version of The Walking Dead S7, I've been working the last 6 days in a row and couldn't do anything with it myself, didn't see where anyone was in any kind of a hurry to get this into the database so I decided to do what I could on my first day off to at least get it in there.  Gathered as much info as I could, tried to contribute it, but it's refusing to contibute saying a pending contibution already exists, but I don't see it anywhere in pending updates.  So, is it in fact being contibuted?  If not, why can't I contribute it?

Curiosity question...

I just bought Continuum: Seasons 2, 3, & 4, I already owned S1.  Found that S4 didn't have her children, went looking, found the children separately but with no data attached, no cast/crew/overview, no info at all.  'Course I didn't find that out until after I'd already attached the children to the parent.  Now I find myself wondering if anyone is working on these children for a future update.  Adding cast/crew and all the other fineries is something I have no finesse with, nor do I have as much time as I'd like to, to attempt it. 

Just wondering if anyone is working on these.  Thanks!

I see where rusty640 contributed a bare-bones profile with cover scans, thanks Rusty. 

Would you just add After Earth as a child for this release?  It wouldn't screw up anything by doing that would it?  I added a few details including the Overview, Audio, SRP, Rating details, but I was hoping I had time to add more before submitting.  Ran out of time this morning...

Can you transplant Cast/Crew information from another release?  How would you go about doing that?

Just curious if anyone is working on a profile for Passengers (2016/2017), Blu-Ray + Digital, from Walmart, with the bonus movie After Earth included?  Won't have enough time to contribute it myself until at least Thursday, maybe not even then if I can't get this computer I'm working on fixed on my only other day off this week.  Don't know how else to find out about this besides this thread, I can't see pending updates for DVDs/BDs that I don't have already in my Profiler.

If nobody's working on it, I wonder at adding the profile for one of the other contributed profiles in the db to my Profiler so I can get already existing cast/crew/etc., then editing for this Walmart release.  Looks like this Walmart release is the only one without a profile in the db...
