    I just did release date order for my whole BD collection and I pulled all the multi film sets out and put them in alpha in the space next to the end of my Criterions

    I am so retentive that would drive me bonkers. Fox and the Hound I/II, for instance, are on the same BD disc...but two different DVD's...

    Think I understand what you mean, but I guess you don't have any that are actually different from that. I have some UK import titles that are basically upside-down-and-reversed of this, ie. rotated 180 degrees -- IIRC, they're mainly releases not produced by the major studios, eg. Artificial Eye. Doesn't bother me too much when they're standing "upright" on the shelf, but quite annoying when I lay them down w/ front cover facing up, eg. in a stack, because the title on the spine will then be upside-down-and-reversed. I'm not too sure at the moment (and too lazy to doublecheck), but IIRC, certain US releases might also be that way unless you opt to use the slipcover's spine instead of the actual BD case's spine -- I'm thinking Kino's titles off the top of my head.

    Would you have a link or model number or something like that for the cabinets? I'm going to be moving in about 45 days and there's a great space in my new house to hold movies if I can find something nice.

    Thanks Kevin!

    I can think of several similar ones on Asperger syndrome forums. ;)
    I mix Blu rays and DVDs together, but I should add that the only DVDs I have now are those for which there is no Blu-ray version. They are arranged 'library shelf' alphabetically (i.e. all the titles beginning with A are together, but within the As they're not in rigid alphabetical order, etc), with the exception of any taller than normal case size box sets, which sit on a separate shelf. The only quirk within this is where I have a lot of films by the same director (Bergman, Kurosawa and Ozu) these are grouped together by director surname under the relevant alphabet letter (i.e. all the Kurosawa directed stuff is under K, etc).
    I thought this was kind of over-elaborate until I saw some of the systems listed on here. I feel a lot better about myself now. Thanks guys!

    I think a terrific party game would be to invite one of the other posters here over to your house. Let them at your collection for about an hour. Then see how long it takes you to find a given movie.
    Hilarity ensues.

    I love this board. It's one of the only places that makes my obsessive compulsive approach to organizing my discs look less extreme. Not quite normal, mind you, but at least part of a tradition.

    Jason, I'll have to look up the model number. I have it in the cabinets and I can figure it out on Saturday.

    Glad to know the OCD is not only in my place but all over the place in this thread...

    So here we are....

    Five years later (to the month).

    So I guess it's time to ask:

    Are you now integrating your 4k/UHD discs in with your Blu-ray discs in your collection?? Or do they get their own special place of honor?

    And what about those poor old DVDs that are still in your collection? Have they been separated out into their own "special area?

    My 4k discs, Blu-rays and DVDs are completely segregated from each other (three separate sections). Don't know exactly why. But they are!

    I'm very liberal with my discs, they are all intermingled. It is part of my rainbow coalition of media.

    I sold all my DVDs except a handful. Replacing with bluray. I don't think UHD is worth it though so probably will stay with old blu.

    4K discs are in their own unique locations. The DVDs and Blus are mixed.

    DVD's are extinct in my collection... ;) I do have my 4K discs and blu-rays segregated. At some point I may mix the media but for now I keep them separate.

    For the time being the 4K have a shelf of their own.

    I remember having separate shelves initially for HDDVD and BD, then a Bookcase with only BD then the DVD got moved into the closet with the LD and LP. 3D had their own shelf at one point, but not they're mixed in.

    I keep my DVDs on separate shelves from my BRs, I need to build some more shelving as my collection keeps growing. I will probably keep the 4K UHDs separate also when the shelving is built.

    My stuff is organized by genre of movie, not format of disc

    Mine are sorted alphabetically. If I felt it necessary to segregate by format I'd probably just get rid of my DVDs. That's not going to happen in the foreseeable future.
