It' time for another upgrade for DVD Profiler.  HDR10+ is a relatively recent addition to the UHD Blu-ray spec and the IMAX releases for Journey to the South Pacific and A Beautiful Planet will support this feature.

Not ideal, but the one title I have that uses a 13 digit bar code I added via disk ID.

I'd add them with the (correct?) location: Netherlands.

Agree.  This sounds like an Netherlands release regardless as to where it may have been filmed.

Consider me part of the problem I guess, because I could care less whether a profile I download abides fully by the contribution rules or not.  I view the ability to download a profile as an initial time saver only.  I've got the physical release right in front of me.  I look over the entire profile I just downloaded regardless checking it for accuracy, updating it from there as I see fit and locking it down.  The end.

The online profile could be removed at that point for all I care.  I don't care what happens to it.  If people want to update a shared online profile for whatever reason, discuss whether a given item abides by the contribution rules or not, discuss how a given contribution rule should be interpreted, changed or enhanced, they can knock themselves out.  I've got better things to spend my energy on.  I'm never going to download the given profile again anyway and don't allow my local profiles to be updated from the shared online database.

I'll point out as well that if a profile hasn't already been contributed I've got no problem at all creating it from scratch.  I do it all the time.  In fact, the shared online database could be taken offline and I would still continue using this program.  It would continue being just as useful to me either way.  Due to how anal many in the community are about what does or doesn't meet the contribution guidelines however, I choose not to make contributions at all.  I'd just assume make the given profile my own locally right out the gate, lock it down and be done with it.  Again, consider me part of the problem I guess.


That is an unfortunate view Lowpro; how did you get to that point?

I'm not sure how many titles you own, but at least for me, the contributions to the online database are helpful as I wouldn't have the time to catalog every single title I own.  And there in lies the challenge.  I see it as a give and take; that is, I contribute some, and I receive contributions from others.

Did you do a complete backup (on old machine) and restore (on new machine)?

The dpb files sound like back up files and from my understanding the images are actually stored in the database files and not the CreditPhotos folder unless you have "custom" (e.g. unique) cast/crew images for a specific release.

As the subject states, does this mean this is a free for all if we don't have to follow the contribution rules?  Unfortunately, too many members just blindly vote yes and too many members contribute how they profile their database regardless to how what the contribution rules actually state.

I'm not saying the contribution rules are perfect, but if you disagree then petition to change the rules.  Now all we have is chaos.

... or the one of the highest quality: 4K over BD over DVD.

Awkward, if the directors cut is on a minor media...


Yep, the rules specify using the main media type for the main profile, but they do allow for the other media types to be added as optional child profiles.

In this case, both are on Blu-ray discs and the cover art doesn't promote a main version; e.g. [title]: Director's Cut or [title]: Theatrical Version.

Alright, I'm not sure how to catalog the audio and video specs for the main profile, in this case, for the MVD release of Windtalkers: Ultimate Edition.  According to the contribution rules this doesn't fall under the box set rules because this contains only one film, but multiple cuts (not multiple films).  The audio specs are vastly different between the two cuts and the video specs are slightly different.

Per the contribution rules, the rating for an unrated cut or the running time of the longer cut takes precedence, but what about the audio specs?

That was me, and I spoke with my contact at MVD who confirmed it as 11/6 (so I removed the contribution). As for what qualifies, I did provide sources for the 2001: ASO with a few outside sites as well as the press release provided by Warner Brothers.


I don't know why Amazon would change the listed release date when MVD hadn't changed the date, but I found it definitely odd.  The release date had even been changed over at Blu-ray.com for some reason.  I wonder it had something to do with the manufacturing delays.

But it's not an Amazon exclusive, thus November 30th 

Seriously, still looking for a valid reason why the October date should stick. Doesn't matter if "a lot" of people received it, it would appear Amazon shipped them out not knowing the date was changed (or got the memo too late). And FWIW, you can no longer purchase it on Amazon, only "pre-order". Were there other retailers that shipped them out or a brick and mortar store that got them in?


I don't mean to hijack a thread, but this example is still relevant and important. What qualifies as evidence to change the release date?  A contribution has been submitted to change the release date for MVD's Windtalkers SE Blu-ray release from 6 Nov 2018 to 13 Nov 2018.  However, plenty of people, including myself have already received the release by 6 Nov 2018 and MVD (the releasing media company) and other retailers still show the release date as 6 Nov 2018.  The only retailer that I can find that shows a modified release date of 13 Nov 2018 is Amazon... why do they get to dictate the release date?

I know, but that's hardly relevant since when you click on the "shop" link at www.warnerbros.com it forwards you to www.wbshop.com.

I think it is relevant since WB can't just update that site on their own.  Since it's run by a third party, like every other retailer, the retailer has to update the site once they receive notice and get around to it.

The ambiguity lies in the fact that the publisher's own site has revised that date several times in the past week, after the original release date and receipt of pre-orders by customers.

wbshop.com originally listed October 30 as the release date.  Then on October 29 they stated that copies would ship "within 10 days."  By November 2 they revised it again listing November 20 as the release date.  The date on wbshop.com has been a moving target.

Actually, WB doesn't own or operate WBShop.com any more.

WB changed the release date at the last minute and some pre-orders shipped on the original release date.  The fact that WB now has a new (i.e. revised) release date doesn't mean there wasn't an earlier "original release date" where product was released.


They didn't ship on the previous release date, Amazon shipped them well in advance of that date as people received them prior to 30 Oct.  But the Digital Bits reported the date change as of 25 Oct so the release date was moved prior to the initial planned date.

I can't explain the rhyme of reason, but lately approvals seem to be more random.  A few of my latest additions have been approved/released, but the ones that came before these are still waiting approval.

It does seem like the software became an after thought a long while ago, but it's been roughly twenty years so I assume Ken is preoccupied with other things in life.  I wonder what happened to all of the planned (mentioned) improvements.

The PC and Android version haven't been updated since the initial 4.0 release.  The iTunes app was updated multiple times since it's initial 4.0 release to fix issues, but unfortunately the Android version has never received any love and hasn't been updated to fix the quirks or the feature set available in the iTunes version.

You would need to find someone that has a copy of 2.1.6 or earlier or have a backup copy of that version.  I don't believe Apple let's you download older versions.

Just to clarify, while I wrote AsinInfo, DJ Doena wrote ASIN to EAS/UPC Converter, and my program uses DJ's dll that handles the communication with Amazon's API. So my program just provides a slightly more advanced user interface.


Appreciate the clarification, I must have gotten things messed up when I was trying to post to the thread from a cell phone.

What for? You can simply enter the EAN in the Amazon search and find your article.


That doesn't always work though, especially for newly announced titles.
