    Has anyone found a way to quickly navigate through your 400 DVDs with the Sony Jukebox? I entered all mine in with a keyboard, then selected Generes (something I'd advise against), and now in order to browse them, I need to go ONE BY ONE. And it's a slow one by one at that.

    If I hold the DOWN or UP arrow, it will allow me to "flip" quickly through the discs, but without any information but number. I entered these in no order at all, figuring the machine would help me order them.

    Is it any better if you don't enter a genere? I think the pictures corresponding to the generes is the thing that slows it down.

    Please help if you have one of these POSs. Watching movies is a chore now.

    Thanks,
    Mike

    The only thing I have been able to do is make up a play list alphabetically on my computer and print it and have it near the stereo. This way when you add new music you can update the list.[​IMG]

    * Please, no "bumping" of this or any thread.

    * Ask about DVD player-related issues here in A/V Sources, not Receivers/Amps. Thank you.

    Thanks for the reply, Calvin. That seems like a poor way to design a jukebox. I really wish I tested this thing out before I loaded 150 DVDs and 200 CDs into it. I was hoping that if I left the Genere blank, I would be able to quickly scroll through them and not get hung up on the pictures.

    Thanks again.

    Mike you can sort the disks alphabetically. Sony's Explorer does leave a lot to be desired as it does not allow you to page down though. You have to arrow down.

    You can also create alpha sections in the the four custom folders i.e. A-E, F-L etc. You assign your DVD's and CD's to each approriate folder you set up.

    Thanks Steve. I think I'm going to unload the whole thing and start over. I'm hoping if I never assign any discs to generes, the pictures won't slow down my navigation. Unfortunately, some discs automatically get assigned a genere.

    That's a great idea about the folders too...I'm going to do that as well. Thanks again.

    I just put them in DVD profiler and print out a report everyonce in a while. That's the easiest way I have found
