A parent profile holds the information as to what child profiles are attached to it.  But do the child profiles have the parent data in them?  I ask this because there is no way to group movies together outside of sort names or manually created boxsets.  If I create a manual boxset to group some movies together, I want to make sure if I contribute changes for a movie it doesn't say BTW I am part of manual boxset #13.  Does that make sense?

No, there's no trace of the parent on the child, only the other way round.

I think I understand the question, and no, child profiles do not know they are a child of the parent. The just think they are little orphans, like all of their friends.

Please sir, may I have some more?

They do know they're children, but they forget it when they write themselves out (as in to a contribution).  Which is an entirely esoteric point.

Ken, are there plans to add a feature for grouping DVDs via dividers or containers in a future release?

While we're on the topic...

I've searched the forum but can't find a quick answer to this question:

Is there any way to automate the addition of child profiles to my collection when I add a parent? Or do I also have to add all of the children profiles to my download queue?  It sure would be convenient to do it all in one fell swoop.

Unfortunately, for now, it's a manual process  .  Perhaps, some Monday , the program will prompt the user to add available child profiles.
