When in the "Whatched By" window, clicking on the date brings up a calendar.
Is it me or is it not possible to to select and change the year only here? What to do if you want to note that you have watched a movie in may 1973? Click on the left arrow 500 times ? That can't be right?

"Watched by" is intended for when you watched the movie on disc, not when you watched the movie theatrically. You can use Notes for that.

Funny.

Doesn't sort very well.

Well I use "Watched by" for all movies that I have watched, on vhs, dvd, blu-ray, whatever. But that was not my point.

But let me try again: What to do if you want to note that you have watched a movie (on disc ??? ) in may 2002? Click on the left arrow 152 times ? That can't be right?

Edit: It's the same problem on my iPhone 5. But it works very well on my Z3 Compact (Android)

And that's quite useful when you watch a movie.  But what if you're browsing your collection and run you run across one that you KNOW you watched 3 years ago, but you forgot to record that?  Then it would be quite helpful to be able to change the year.

Seems like a valid request to me.

It's a valid request when you use valid arguments. I wasn't opposing the request, just commenting on the validity of the argument.

Lol. What are you talking about?
This was not a request and there were no arguments. Just a few questions. This is the technical support forum, right?

Call it what you want. That looked like an argument to me. You're arguing that it can't be right. But if it's just a question then I guess the answer is that there is no easier way, except possibly to do it in PC Profiler and transfer it to the iOS device.

No problem. I can do it on android or desktop.

It shoulld be easy to fix though. Why not use scroll weels instead of (or in addition to) the calendar?
