It uses your camera as a bar code reader and also lets you enter titles manually if not in the database...but I only needed to do that a couple of times. I was able to enter my entire collection (around 1500 titles) in one afternoon. And now when I go treasure hunting at the pawn shops and resellers, I have my entire collection with me to verify what I already own and it can also be customized. I love this app because it is easy and intuitive. Now I find I no longer desire a desktop version. I've got all I need on my phone. I think it was a one time charge of $17.

Re: How many Blu-Ray double dips do you have?

Blu-ray double dips = none
Blu-ray upgrades from piss-poor quality DVDs = a couple (Outland comes immediately to mind)

I won't automatically upgrade a DVD to blu-ray unless I have a really good reason for it. I just don't have that kind of money.

Yeah, I've bought DVD Profiler, but keep putting off doing the actual work. Might have more than 20,000 titles, so it's gonna take forever.

Re: How many Blu-Ray double dips do you have?

I have two Blu disks that I bought on DVD, Metropolis and Bladerunner.

Last week I watched A Better Tomorrow (1986), and it was a terrible non-anamorphic disk. I considered upgrading it to Blu. Then I decided that if I haven't watched it in fifteen years, there's no point.

Re: How many Blu-Ray double dips do you have?

The Muppets- bought a copy in store and forgot to decline it when it was Disney Movie Club's monthly title.

The first five Halloween films- I had the individual releases and then picked up the Scream Factory box set.

Ghostbusters- had the single Blu-ray and later bought the book set that came with the first and second films.

Wonder Woman (animated)- had the standard release and bought Target's Steelbook edition just recently.

X-Men: Days of Future Past- Steelbook of the theatrical cut and the Rogue Cut.

Pretty sure those are it for me.

I'm in the exact same boat as you are, I have not upgraded any Blus and the only DVD's I have upgraded to Blu are the ones that have horrible quality. Gotta live within my means.
