Here is a tip I discovered the other day:
If you highlight a title in a forum posting ( that is NOT an url) ,, OR in one's recently purchased area.. and with that title highlighted, if you click on the IMDB yellow icon in the IE 7/Google toolbar ( you can add icons from different web sites), by clicking on the icon it will bring up IMDB and that title in question you highlighted..
There are always titles that I didn't know existed or edtions existed and without using this tip you would have to do cutting and pasting into various web sites and then link fro mthere the title in question. This is just a short cut and I thought was kinda neat, as I had once suggested in The Features forum that it would be nice to have this ability within Invelos itself..
In the 60's, People took Acid to make the world Weird. Now the World is weird and People take Prozac to make it Normal.

Sounds like you are describing a Single Sided Disc that has two features on it. See Village of thee Damned/Children of the damned for an example.

If each movie is on a different side of the disc, you can create a parent profile with two child profiles (one for each movie).
If both movies are on one side of the disc, you can use dividers in the cast and crew credits sections to separate cast and crew for the movies.

Speaking of double features...

I'm a new user of DVD Profiler, so I don't know if my question has been addressed already or not, but here goes.

I have a number of double features, such as those in Warner's Film Noir Collection Vol. 4.  Let's take, for example, the disc with the double feature of "Act of Violence" and "Mystery Street".

My problem is that when I use the Search By Title feature on the toolbar, I can find "Act of Violence" but not "Mystery Street".  Is there some workaround for this?

In order to get that to work you have to go to the Filters window and tick the box marked "substring search" just next to the Title field. After that is ticked, it will work even in the toolbar search field. Unfortunately it doesn't remember this when you close the program so you have to remember to tick it every time you start Profiler.

Thank you very much.  I suppose I should have checked out the 'bells and whistles' a little closer first.

You can make it so the substring search is always enabled if you use it often (or every time, as I do).

To do this, tick the substring box on the filters page.  Optionally, sort your collection list in whatever order you want to have at startup (by title, random etc).  Save a filterset called startupfilterset on your C:\ drive.  Next, open notepad and past in: Loadfilterset C:\startupfilterset.flt  .Save this as commandfile.txt on C:\  Finally, right click your DVDP shortcut and at the end of the 'target' field paste in: commandfile="C:\commandfile.txt"

File names/paths are of course changeable as long as they remain consistant.

Copy & Paste info between Profiles

Go to the profile you wish to copy now got to Toolbar> DVD> Copy, now go to the profile you want to copy the data to and go to Toolbar> DVD> Paste you now get a "Paste Profile Data" window that allows you to copy over any data you wish

Good for creating disc level profiles for TV series set's or creating a Blu-ray from an already existing DVD Profile.

Don't forget to confirm all data from disc before contributing

CLT can show the full Cast and Crew for a title (Just found this out so apologies if everyone already knew)

Type in the name of the Cast/Crew member you are looking for click on a title to show the credit, now clear the name field and click on the title again and you will get a full Cast/Crew list for that title
