Tom, when you do the conversion to version 2.4 xml,do you also exportthe slot/location information too. I have my tvshows in a dvd changer and I wantto automate this process as well.

I convert everything that was available in DVD Profiler's 2.4 XML export.


It's not in the 2.4 xml export. Would you consider adding it?

That is incorrect, the 2.4 XML supported Location and slot (as part of the DISC tag)

It was included in 2.4 XML and is also exported in the CCViewer.
I just tried it again.

Those look like the 3.0 xml tags. I don't have that in my 2.4 export.

edit: I think I see the problem. The <dsic> id isn't imported with the Xlobby import. Guess I'll have to add it manually.

For 1.5.1 here is Tom's example on how to automotate
Batchfile with two commands:
C:\Program Files\DVD Profiler\dvdpro.exe /CommandFile C:\temp\ProfilerCommand.txt
C:\tools\CCViewer\CCViewer.exe CCVCommand.txt

with the command file ProfilerCommand.txt:
ExportXMLAll C:\temp\Collection.xml
Close

and the command file CCVCommand.txt:
OpenDatabase C:\tools\CCViewer\Database.mdb
ImportProfilerDatabase  C:\temp\Collection.xml
ExportProfiler2Database C:\temp\Profiler2.xml
Close

OK, what have I done wrong?

I updated CCV Viewer to V 1.5.1 and got it working using an existing CCV database. I then started up DVDP with the CCV Plugin (V1.1). Now every time I select a profile in DVDP which I know has an award, I get one of two popups:

either: "Object reference is not set to an instance of an object"

or "Type mismatch".

What's it doing and how do I fix it?

You haven't done anything wrong, except not reading my warning

Attention:
This release has been released earlier as planned because of the Profiler 2 Export fix.
Originally planned to be released with an update of the Award plugin.
It is therefore not possible to use a database managed under version 1.5.0 to be used with the current award plugin (because of database change).


The same goes of course for 1.5.1 until I will update the award plugin.

Simply create a new database with the award plugin (inside DVD Profiler) and import into this one the awards.

As I have written in another thread, it is easy to look for cast and crew entries with birthyears with the viewer.
I have uploaded SQL queries for this:

  • "List CastCrew With BirthYear": This shows all cast and crew entries which have a birthyear assigned

  • "List CastCrew Where BirthYear in CastCrew": This shows all names, which have in some profiles birthyears assigned

  • "List TVCastCrew Where BirthYear in CastCrew": This shows all names in episode lists, which have a birthyear assigned in a movie profile

    1) What would one do with 3 XML export ?
    2) Thanks on quote fix.
    3) What was wrong with this command file before ?

    Thanks.

    thanks for this - but it looks like this doesn't include an award fix, so I assume we still can't use the databse from this within dvd profiler?

    The Profiler 2 export was implemented while Profiler 2 was current. And now you are glad that I did
    The original purpose is still the same as then: You can manipulate data in the Viewer without some of the restrictions Profiler has (e.g. only 3 studios/genres, limited characters in cast/crew/title) and still have a Profiler 3 XML for other user applications. Sadly nobody uses this advantage. The Profiler 2 Export has only be begun to be used, when other application could still not handle the new Profiler 3 export.

    After creation of the new database it was not automatically selected.

    This problem has nothing to do with the Viewer. The reason is, that the Viewer is further ahead than the award plugin and the plugin cannot handle the new database.

    This needs to be fixed in the plugin. But I wanted to wait for the promised improvements in the Plugin API, which are said to be coming with the next Profiler, before I release a new version. But it seems that it will take awhile, so I will make maybe a release with just that fix during the holidays.
