I'm tired of Dvd Aficionado. What else is there?

They never have any of the other region dvds that I own on the listings. Is there something that has every dvd? Any suggestions? Thanks

Get DVDProfiler (link given in the first reply). DVDSpot has MANY DVDs missing, and DVDProfiler has a lot more. If the database has missing DVDs, you can very easily add them. I have a fairly big collection and I'm generally happy with that program.

I'll second DVD Profiler. It's an application that allows you to store your data offline as well as online. With customizable reports, the sky's the limit as to how you want your collection presented.

Then enter them in! I've been through profiler, afficianado, Guzzlefish, and many more. DVDSpot is the best in terms of tracking your collection (be it owned, wishlist, ordered, loaned) and is one of the easiest in terms of submitting a new DVD to the database.

I was wondering that myself. They may not be the best out there but they do add your request.

DVDProfiler without a doubt....I own a ton of non-R1 product and this is by far the best system to use.

Does any other program do the stats like Guzzlefish did?

I love DVDSpot just because of the ease of submitting stuff.. I have added 25 titles to their database, most were added within the day. The site has a great layout as well.

DVDProfiler was the first one I used, and the one I've stuck with. I've used Afficianado, Guzzlefish, and DVDSpot, and DVDProfiler's standalone app and not having to be connected to the internet are two features I really enjoy.

DVDspot is definitely the best one that I have used, and I have tried all the "big names".

DVDProfiler - you can add titles instantly and, once it's updated through the system, your entry will update (as long as you used the correct UPC). Plus, as has been mentioned, you don't have to be online to use it. Custom tags and the ability to print out a list based on filters/tags make it very handy.

I also use DVDAF because I like using the folders and it's very quick to add titles.

DVDAficionado is undergoing a big upgrade, should be available by sometime Jan. And since you can add titles, missing titles shouldn't be an issue.

Also, just as a side note.. I used to use DVD profiler, but they said I had to pay $30 for the premium version of their software in order to upload my collection online after I reached about 690 DVD titles in my collection. I then tried DVDAficionado which I didn't care for, and eventually wound up with DVDSpot.

I own around 1000 titles and still haven't run into that problem on DVD profiler.

Another vote for DVD Profiler for the reasons already listed.

That's really strange... My collection is twice that size and I've still got the freeware version... They've never bugged me for an upgrade and my entire collection is online...

DVD Profiler allows you a certain amount of space for your online collection without having to upgrade. If you have a lot of titles locked, then that's going to take up more space than just using the most updated profile of that title.

I upgraded about a year ago and couldn't be happier. The improved image quality, and the "Movie Picker" feature are great. It's only $30 and you get any updates for free, unlike some services where you have to pay an annual fee.
