I started with that one, and added the gold/black 4K logo afterwards. I'll see about making them switchable.  Frankly the naming schemes around 4K / Ultra HD / HDR / etc. are not incredibly well thought out imo.  The discs themselves most commonly indicate "4K ULTRA HD" in silver on black, and it seems the retailers prefer "4K".  Of course that has it's own issue due to "4K mastered Blu-ray".


Unfortunately, they have made a mess of the verbiage, more due to marketing, and they also use the Ultra HD Premium logo on the front too.  From what I've seen the Ultra HD Blu-ray logo is used on the spine, the actual disc, and sometimes on the back cover.  Although it seems they prefer a black logo, maybe to blend in with the black cases.  HDR and SDR are a different animal though since UHD can have either high dynamic range or standard dynamic range content and still be 4K.

Having them switchable would be great!

4K UltraHD is the most common branding from what I can see.

Sounds good. Will the bug also be fixed with regards to removed birthyears not being copied to the local database?

Why should it? The service is still operational (on the other hand, MSN is dead and should be removed). Skype, Twitter, Facebook could be added for those who wish to share this information.

As this appears to be an update of the desktop software, not a website update, I doubt any of the aforementioned website changes will be made.

So no big changes in how the database is structured?  With the last big update we had the ability to add UPC/Disc variants, which was a great update.  But it seemed like more was coming, like the ability to have a profile have multiple covers (slips/nonslips).  Also it appeared there were hints to moving to a more centralized DB structure as far as films were concerned.  That would be huge, to have on entry for each film (or cut) as far as cast, crew, details, so there aren't hundred Dark Knight profiles to update.

So if this just an update for 4k, Atmos, calendar view, etc then I'm not too excited.  Happy for those that are looking forward to it, but doesn't do much for me.

My unsolicited advice to you Ken, is to come up with something that the majority of DVDP users would be willing to pay a monthly/yearly fee to have, I'd love to have a reason to give you more money, if it's something I'd like.  I would guess that sales of DVDP have dipped quite a bit, as most stores I used to shop for discs only carry new releases and my shopping is way down. I would think you have already explored these options, but at the same time IMO you have squandered the potential that the community could have given you.  For most users the DVDP application would be worthless for all the hard work and effort made by those that spent their time to contribute.  I got my money's worth with my license purchase, and I also hope I added value to it by all my work with contributions as well as voting on others' contributions.

Glad to see that updates are still coming, and am happy for those that are excited for the updates!

I LOVED ICQ back in the day... I loved the insta type feature, where you could see each keystroke.. not to mention the sounds the program used.

I'm not sure that's the message I walked away with.  Just that things of that nature don't make exciting screenshots, so the calendar thing was shown instead.  As for the level of changes you're talking about, I'm still in wait and see mode.  Unless I missed something, I don't believe we know everything that will be included just yet.

Another peek.  This shot shows some of the available badges that can be displayed with thumbnails. There are several more options, and each can be pinned to a corner/moved/configured.

Nice Ken! Once again... nothing I would personally use as I don't use the thumbnail view.

My personal wish list:
- Filter on gift giver
I would find it useful to filter only titles each person has generously given me.

- Play All in Features
Would be helpful for both TV series episodes as well as shorts and even seen it one some multiple movie discs.

- Better Linking

- better option then Birth Years

- Gift Info added to Charts and Graphs
I mean like charts and graphs on the gift givers... % of gifts given per giver.

- More Info on Features
Such thing as...
- number of commentaries and with who
- Titles of Bonus Trailers
- Titles/lengths of Featurettes
- Titles of Music Videos
etc. etc.

But that is just things that I personally been hoping for over the years.

ICQ was the only IM on which I gathered a significant number of friends (a few over 100) who I chatted with on a weekly basis. It made keeping a dozen conversations going at once quite interesting. I hated when people began to disappear from it. On every other messenger, I never had more than 10 to 20 friends.

That sounds like an interesting feature i will enjoy delving into.

My biggest wish is a restructure of the database to have a single copy of the info for each movie and automatically sharing that to all profiles. It would make things easier on the users and cut down on approver labor by a huge margin. Having 200+ versions of popular movies in the DB thanks to multiple editions, formats and countries that all have to be manually found and updated for every change (and can never even be definitively correct thanks to birth years and common names being able to changed based on things that happen post-release) is the biggest problem DVD Profiler has right now.
