    You guys may have seen that I use a DVD mega-changer to store my DVDs. As you can imagine managing the location of 400 DVDs can be a real challenge, so I decided to do something a bit fun.

    I wrote a custom piece of software that catalogs my movies and also controls the DVD changer.

    You can read more about it here.

    I am considering refining the software a bit and releasing it for public consumption, and maybe even putting together a whole package, IR transmitter, touch screen, computer, etc.

    Sup Josh,

    I got the same changer last christmas. I have since been using you as a idea reference for the movie cards. I too have found this to be a huge task. Since I have 320+ movies, I have for now just made an excel file with the Slot Numbers/Movie Names.

    How can I get my hands on your latest project? Keep up the great work man. Keep me posted.

    Thanks John A...

    I am debating whether or not to release it to the public. If I did I would probably charge something for it, simply to recoup some of my time, however I would also need beta testers [​IMG]

    I am considering packaging the whole thing up, computer, touchscreen, IR transmitter, etc.

    Would you be interested in such a thing?
