I guess without access to the online database it would be difficult to add records directly in the collection but I thought of a somewhat simpler way of doing this.  The "Add window" would look like this.  We would add by entering the UPC/EAN code and pushing the "Owned","Ordered" or "Wishlist" button.

The program would only record the UPC and the collection to add to, in a separate table.  Then Upon Synchronizing DVD Profiler would process the entries one at a time and add them to the correct collection using the current method of checking the online db to find the profile(s), allow selection of the locality if more than on is find, personalization etc.

You can currently add profiles to your Owned/Ordered/Wishlist from the New Releases, Coming Soon and Range functions, but I agree this would be a great thing to be able to add by UPC.

I'd like this too. Could add bricks and mortar purchases before I get home but even better for wishlist titles I see and then forget.

Select Lookup by UPC, enter the UPC.  If the UPC isn't found, click 'Add' under No matches by UPC.  The drop-down will appear to add to owned, ordered, or wishlist, and the program will prompt for a title.  The title is optional.  When you next synch with desktop, DVD Profiler will do a lookup by UPC and download the profile if it's available, else it will add using the title you entered on mobile.

I keep the entire online list on the mobile device since it doesn't take up that much space, so the lookup by UPC has access to all database entries.  Then, you get some details on the mobile device right away and the rest is pulled at the next synchronization.

How do you do this, Ken?  I think all I'm adding is the Upcoming and New Release titles when I synch to my PDA.
