DVDProfiler 2.3!
 
It's finally done! :up: Some very nice features have been added.

Rammsteinfan 12-10-04 10:07 PM

Nice. Checking out. Thanks for the heads up.

Now that I see a " Hide Updates For Locked Profiles/Images " option I'm pretty happy.
Gotta look it over a bit more to see the other tweaks.

If I update, will all the information I've entered about my DVDs - such as purchase date, price, place, notes - be kept, or is there a risk of losing it?

Just do a backup from the current DVD Profiler. Than open up the new version and do a restore. That will preserve everything.

It's all saved... though, I'm not positive about any user entered Notes.

Just make sure you do a back-up before installing the upgrade.

How does one use the new tag feature?

Best bet to answer any questions related to the new version is through the DVDProfiler forums at: http://www.intervocative.com/Forums.aspx

2.3 will convert all your 2.2 information just fine. But you should always do a backup as a precaution in case something does go wrong.

As for tags, there's a tags tab in 2.3, if you click on that, you can create tags from there. Then once you set tags, you use the filters tab to fiter titles by tag.

I hope this means they are going to start updating the database because darn they are behind.

Bitching aside, thanks for the heads up. I am heading over to update right now.

They are planning to start updates 5 or so days after the release. So somewhere around midweek I would expect.

Thanks for the info.

I finally registered my copy since I use it so often, I figured I coudl give them some sort of kickback

Yeah, really -- I LOVED this program on the PC and then I switched to a Mac and now the DVD's just come and go as they please and I don't have any idea what's going on!

Anyone know of a relatively good Mac replacement for this program??

Draven99 12-11-04 10:32 AM

I've heard of people running it on a Mac under a windows emulator.....

Downloaded and installed over the previous version and all is working great thus far!!

Shagrath 12-11-04 05:18 PM

Supposedly there's a way to flag a movie as "Watched" or "Unwatched". The only way I see to do this is make an account for myself, and say that that user watched it. Is there an easier way?

Delicious Library is a nice alternative for the Mac although the program may be a bit more Amazon-centric (it performs lookups through Amazon's site) than some people like.

Thanks for the update. Installed and converted from the previous version with no problems, though I did back up the database, reports and skins first

I'm looking at this one -- looks OK and does more than DVDs. Thanks for the tip! :)

This would actually be a helpful feature, as I've just been adding "Watched" in the notes sections of DVD Profiler 2.1. I'll probably update soon, was just worried about losing some info. Creating back-ups is not my specialty. If the new version allows for this "Watched" feature, I'll be more than happy to upgrade immediately. Anyone have any info on this?

That's good to hear. Now I can just be excited about the new release, because it is really quite good and much faster than it used to be.
