P&S has a very specific meaning, that the film is zoomed into and image lost to fit the aspect ratio of the screen, regardless of the impact it has on the film.

Open matte means more of an image was captured at the time of filming than was used in the final version of the film.

Having said that a film being released at 1.85:1 when it was shot open matte is not being done to fit a screen, it's being done (in most cases) because that is the director's vision. You are not losing things that were meant to be seen.

So I don't see why you wouldn't use full frame for the scenarios you've outlined below.

UK DVD release of Babylon 5 complete collection 7321902209159, various discs from each season no longer play.

Crank 2 5060052417770 UK blu-ray no longer plays

Solomon Kane 5017239151590 UK blu-ray

Gamer 5017239151408 UK blu-ray

Scarecrow Slayer DVD 5060020622335 won't load at all

None of them show any visible signs, just won't work and that's trying multiple standalone and PC based drives.

The Bunker DVD 5034377031188 - slowly failing, my guess is the layer change as the pixellation happens at the same point every time but is slowly getting worse.

I also have a corrupt profile in my database.


I have a similar problem with Wyrmwood Apocalypse (9317731169823) - back cover is corrupted in the online database and two attempts to upload a new cover were declined.


I had this issue with the German Underwater release, but managed to get it fixed. I think part of the problem is even though we can't download it the scan does exist for the screeners (you can see it's unbroken in the small online collection thumbnail).

How different to the 'existing' scans are yours? Mine was an older scan as I hadn't got round to updating the profile before the corrupted scan happened, so it looked quite different.

The limitations are here:

You lose quite a lot of functions after you add more than 50 dvd's e,g, the ability to export XML, view collection by cast and crew etc...

For some reason, the profile is still showing on my online collection, so it exists somewhere in the system

http://invelos.com/onlinecollections/dvd/InBlue/DVD.aspx?U=853294007848

I'll wait for guidance here, but it either needs a DB admin to fix whatever is broken, or I may need to upload a new profile.


The online DB showed an unbroken image for mine, given there's so little communication from admins I stand by my previous suggestions of resubmitting it to fix it.

I had a similar experience with the German release of Underwater, it was a different error, but the profile was broken with the cover scan being corrupted.

That's been fixed by uploading new cover scans, so you may want to try resubmitting the profile (you may need to edit something) to see if that fixes it.

Is it just me or is this profile for the German release of Underwater broken?

When I tried to view the comparison of the last update I got a 'data error' message, downloading it leads to a broken cover image, with the image shifted across and covered in green from near the top to the bottom.

The program suggest reparing the database which didn't fix it.

Removing it and downloading the profile just leads to the same error and corrupted cover image. Oddly the online collection shows an uncorrupted cover image.

Thankfully I was able to restore it from my database backup.

That's the problem with uncredited, it's almost impossible to confirm whether or not it was copied from IMDB, it's entirely possible the person who submitted the original credits to Intervocative submitted them to IMDB as well. It's also the case that the submission rules on Intervocative dissallowed copying from IMDB, although that doesn't mean they didn't slip through.

So for me it's a very grey area. which is why my preference is to leave as is, but I'll go with the consensus.

I've just seen a profile up for vote where uncredited cast have been removed as undocumented.

I voted no as it was one of the many that we all had to submit when the program moved from Intervocative to Invelos. From what I remember this was done on the basis of getting it done quickly, which precluded copying extensive notes from the old database. So even though they are undocumented for Invelos, it doesn't mean they weren't submitted with supporting evidence previously.

The question is, is it acceptable to remove data from all the profiles submitted around mid March 2007 on this basis?

This one would probably be best to use for queries relating to the desktop version.

http://www.invelos.com/Forums.aspx?task=viewforum&forumID=2

With regards your problem, if you're logged in using the same credentials then it should just be a case of synching the desktop program with the online collection.

I'm not sure what layout you're using for the desktop, but for me the synch icon is in the menu bar towards the top.

Above the Owned tab there's a film strip icon, click the icon to the right of it, a globe with two arrows pointing left and right, and it'll bring up the synchronise dialogue.

Once you've logged in it'll bring up two options, upload or download. Click the download option and it'll download from the online collection.

Be aware it will overwrite any existing data in your desktop database, so if you have entered any data in there, that's not in the online collection you'll lose it.

The desktop version does have a backup function, under the file menu that you'll want to get into the habit of using as it allows you to undo any mistakes.

Hi, ok I bought pro for PC and iOS so I can scan with iPhone and do any maintenance with PC.
So I created online DB/collection not using default name while following iOS prompts and added just 5 dvds to start of as experiment - how do I get the PC version to hook to that collection? I'm going crazy trying to find where/how and the online help doesn't seem to be helpful on this topic - or I'm not getting it's terminology.

As mediadogg suggests it would be a good idea to post in one of the other forums to avoid getting lost in the spam. But as we're here are you logged into DVDProfiler on your PC using the same credentials you used for your apple device?

If your friend is so bothered why did they get you to create an account and not create a second one of their own to post?

Smells like something living under the bridge to me.

I would say I'm talking about mid budget modern releases.


Which is of course precisely the kind of stuff people are very reluctant to spend money on. Can I have an enjoyable evening watching run-of-the-mill modern hollywood piece that is not outstanding in any department:.


Neither Becky nor Werewolves Within are really standard run of the mill Hollywood pieces. This category also includes films like Titane, which is about as far from it as you can get.

The reality is those non-standard Hollywood films you apparently love are films people don't want to spend money on, that's why, if they do get released, it's by small publishers who do limited runs.

I would say I'm talking about mid budget modern releases.

Yes we have a market for classics/obscure older stuff, but that tends to be short production runs and you can see multiple releases of the same popular films from different companies. I would say the majority of 88 and 101 Films output is licensed from US releases.

Personally I'm very wary of Artifical Eye since they've become Curzon Artificial Eye, the pre-merger DVD release of Stalker was a beautiful transfer, their post merger Blu-Ray release was clearly sourced from an inferior print with no restoration work.

I've had to start looking at importing more films as they either don't get released on disc at all (Underwater) or only get DVD releases (Becky, Werewolves Within) here in the UK.

When it comes to streaming, there are some older horror films available via the likes of Shudder on Prime, but the quality can best be described as variable with either low quality tranfers, incorrect aspect ratios or only being available dubbed.

Germany and France seem to have a more robust market for physical media so far.

There's already a couple of threads on this topic, the second one contains a workaround for installing it.

App is working for me. In fact I just re-synced the App on my Adnroid phone with the desktop. Performed without any issues.

That begs the question - what OS version is the origial poster on compared to you?

Well somebody is keeping profile submissions going behind the scenes, so it looks like they may have resubmitted the apple app. Hopefully we'll see the android one return if that's the case.

We haven't/won't see anything official from Invelos, but I imagine it's the same issue as the Apple app, e.g. it's not been updated to ensure compatability with the latest version of the OS so is no longer allowed/available in the store.

The relevant rules state the following for alternates:

Quote:

Updated re-releases of a title under the same UPC/EAN/Disc ID

    Use for: Two or more releases of the same title with largely different cover images (e.g. Disc ID profiles shared among different box sets).
    Use for: Two or more releases of the same title with significantly different content. (UPC/EAN only)

I'm not sure if the e.g. referring to disc id's in box sets for cover images excludes different cover images for UPC's, but that may be why the screeners rejected it.

Not sure if this was thrashed out in the forums at some point but maybe somebody can point to it if it was.

Looking at the notes for it you should follow marcelb7's advice

Wrong locality. Please change to locality United Kingdom, and check if there are any updates to the profile.
Select profile -> Go to menu DVD -> Change UPC -> Select UK -> Click OK -> Refresh profile.

In both those cases you did multiple submissions on the same day, so my guess is user error, e.g. you didn't tick the relevant box on the later submissions.

Profile submissions don't stack, so if you do multiple submissions the only data that's submitted is that ticked on the last one.
