    OK, here it is, I skimmed the DVDProfiler site, could not find what I am looking for.

    I used to print out a reports by exporting to CSV, the doing the sort I wanted in Excel. With the new version of DVD Profiler, titles are (properly) titled with THE in the front. IE, The Cat's Meow, is now titled, The Cat's Meow, but sorted as Cat's Meow, The.

    Now, how do I sort by Genre, then Sort by title using the Sort by function. that is i want titles alphabetize based on Cat's Meow, The NOT The Cat's Meow.

    Exporting to XML captures the 2 title fields, CVS does not.

    Could not find a report that did this either. Does this mean I have to build one up?

    I didn't notice it was doing this until reading your post. Anyone have a solution?

    I think ver 2.0 is giving them some problems. IMHO

    Seeming as I scan in all my DVD covers a 150dpi, I am not too concerned with the inability to DL new HI-Rez covers.

    Try resetting the date stamps on your database. I remember when I installed the beta, I had this problem. The date stamp thing worked. Back-up first.

    Here is my problem:

    I have downloaded 2.0 and I go to refresh from IVS, it downloads my Online profile list, as soon as it get to my alais list it feezes up my computer.

    Any cures for this or anybody else dealing with this?

    James,

    I'm experiencing the same glitch, though it doesn't freeze my computer. The program switches into 'Not Responding' mode.

    Suggestions, anyone?

    After reformatting my computer, I was having serious problems with getting any kind of info about the DVD's I was loading. And when I tried to download my list from the server, I kept getting a timeout. So I simply uninstalled the Profiler, then reinstalled it, and presto, the problems went away.

    I believe during the installation, I kept everything checked to get installed, and left everything at default. This is the version I have:
    Version: 2.0.0
    Build: 569
