If the movie already exists in the database, download a different version of it, then change the UPC, release date, cover art, etc. If not, there's not really a shortcut.

I was hoping I could float stuff over from another DB, but it seems not :-(.
However many thanks for the information Ace_of_Sevens.
There are usually various alternate copies of what I need, never thought of modding them and saving as a new entry.

If you do this and contribute to the database, please double check the information before submitting. Many times the information is not fully correct. But that being said, it's an easy way of getting cast/crew information without having to type everything yourself.

Sorry for resurrecting an old thread, but I have a follow-up question. How exactly do I change an existing title's UPC? I'm trying to figure out how to add my steelbook of Get Out that's the same disc as the normal Finnish release but the steelbook has a different UPC. I added the standard release to my collection and can change all the other info on it, but how do I change the UPC?

Select DVD on the menu, then Change UPC/Locality, the enter the new UPC.
