I don't know if this is a bug, or if I'm just not understanding the data correctly.

In my Summary tab it says I have:

Number of Discs: 1415
Profiles: 1400
Standard Profiles: 1400
Boxset Profiles: 0
Child Profiles: 0

It's the "Number of Discs" number that's confounding me a little. I was really surprised to see that I only had 15 profiles (or fewer) with more than one disc, so I clicked on the Discs tab and ran a query where I showed all profiles where the Disc Count was greater than 1. It returned 167 profiles, several of which had more than 2 discs per profile.

From what I understand that doesn't jive with the "Number of Discs" in the summary tab.

Or am I misunderstanding something?

You may have a lot of profiles that have no discs currently assigned. Run a report going that way.

But I have found a small bug; if you filter by standard and child profiles only (remove box set profiles) and you have box sets of box sets, it will include the child that is a parent.


I know exactly what you're talking about.  I have some profiles 5 levels deep (TV -> Babylon 5 Universe -> Babylon 5 -> Babylon 5: The Movie Collection -> Babylon 5: In the Beginning  ).

It's not a bug, it's by design.

Seriously, in that case, the profile is both a child and a parent (box set).  So it's just a question of what should be done with them.  It shouldn't be too hard to switch it if that's a more proper behavior.  I guess the question is, should it simply be switched or is there a good reason to have the behavior be optional sp you could go either way?  I don't honestly have an answer at this point.

That doesn't sound right to me.  Are you applying any weird filters?  Sometimes I got odd numbers only to find out I was filtering something out I shouldn't have been.  Or as NewEnglander says, could you have a lot of profiles without discs?

Here's what I just did.  If first cleared all filters, then I went to the Disc tab, picked Disc Count for the field, and searched for all profiles where disc count = 0 and added that to disc count greater than 0.  I get 1264 profiles which is exactly what the Summary page gives me for my profile count and what the All tab says in DVD Profiler.  Do yours add up correctly?

It might be interesting to see how the Disc Count breaks down.  Like how many have 0, how many have 1, etc.

The page that breaks down the stats to show how many child profiles, would it be posssible to even dig further down to grandchildren and great grandchildren. 


How about a query somewhere else other than the Summary tab?  I only ask because I have discs 4 and 5 levels deep in some places.  It would be hard to predict how deep it needs to be on the Summary tag.  A query on the Box Set Contents tab could easily handle an unlimited number of levels.  Plus you could click on a link and see all the profiles at that level.  That seems far more flexible.

bug (or rather logic needs correction)

Purchase Price - Missing Purchase Price

this query returns your entire wishlist as price paid 0.00 - i suspect it should omit wishlist titles from that search query automatically.

Nope, that is a genuine bug. I'll have it fixed in the next version.

Very,very nice, I'll have a tons of use for this one. On the "Fun" side of the plugin, I would love to see an option to exclude television genre. I would like to see my Director/Actor top-stats without that genre included.

Turns out this is exactly right. Good thinking. Thanks.

I ran a few "disc count equals to" queries and this is what it came up with:

0 = 162
1 = 1071
2 = 163
3 = 0
4 = 3
5 = 1
6+ = 0

Add all those profiles up, and you get 1400, which is my total number of profiles right now.

Looks like I have some work to do capturing disc IDs.

Feature Request: A pre-defined query identifying people with the same name.

This would help in finding individuals who are in the Db twice, once with birth year and once without. Sometime that will obviously be legit, other times the birth year simply hasn't been propagated yet.

It could potentially also be implemented in such a way that it could help identify instances where the name has been parsed differently. Meaning there may be two cast profiles for the same person where one of them has the persons middle name in the last name field, and the other has it in the middle name field.

I am notoriously bad at not finding features, so if this is already possible please point me in the right direction.

The option is already there.  Open the Filters window by clicking either the button on the toolbar or right-clicking and picking Change Filters from the popup menu as seen below:



The third tab on the Filters window is Genre.  And it ought to work pretty much exactly like the Genre filters in the main program.

I see you found the NameVariants plugin already (thanks goblinsdoitall).  That's a great plug-in and I saw no reason to try to cover the same ground twice.
