Hi all,
I cannot explain to myself what is going on.
If I change the file path of a movie file, the title that is supposed to be displayed on the left of the page becomes blank.
See attached screen.
If I put back the initial file path the title stays blank.
Would you know what is going on?

What is your PVD version and what is the file name you are setting?

 version: 1.0.2.7 (I recently upgraded to that version)
 File path was: \\Htpc\Disque 1 (D)\teeth\teeth.avi 

And I changed it to: XXX

I have used that methos for years, when I delete a movie from my Hard drive, I keep the record but delete the file path and change it to "XXX"

Thanks

I can't reproduce the problem.
What Skin are using?
Can you send me your pvdconf.ini located in %APPDATA%\Personal Video Database

It does it with any skin I use.
I attach the file here.

Yes, I did, but could not reproduce the problem still. Could it be some script or plugin doing this? Try removing all scripts and plugins you are not using.

 I just tried what you suggested and I get the same issue.
 When I edit a movie file path, title disappears from the left side list.

 If I change the file path again to what it was then the title does NOT reappear.

Weird isn't it?

 What can I do?

 I've deleted all scripts and plug ins then uninstalled pvd then re-installed (keeping settings) and problem is not fixed.

 I went into preferences then changed the "show movie in the list as" from %T to %O and the title is back.
 
 And after trying a few things it appears that if I change ANYTHING (e.g; year) in the film information card, the title disappears from the list.

 Also looking at all records, I do not see any "title" field... How is this possible? I use IMDB script.

I have looked over the whole code regarding changing the title and could not find anything that could produce such a strange effect.
We should probably try to narrow this down:
1. Does it happen with another database?
2. Do you have any ini files in same folder as the database?

1) NO
2) NO

BUT after opening another database for testing, and reopening my database, the problem is now gone!!
I don't know how this is possible... by opening a different database did I reset some kind of setting??

I know I have played around with skins recently, do you think it could come from a skin?

Yes, it could come from the Skin, but you told me before that you had the problem with any skin, so I did not analyze this theory.
The whole thing still sounds very strange. Changing database does not change any program wide settings unless there is a configuration file near the database. It must be some wrong program state that you achieved somehow, but I can't find out what it actually is :(
Glad, that it fixed itself for you, thou :)

 Nostra the bug is back.
 
Well actually I think I know what happens.

I use a skin that was modified for me (I can't find the post in this forum where I asked for this).
I asked to remove the "title" from the skin.
So when I modify a movie IN THAT SKIN, it gets save without a title.
Since my setting for the list on left is set to %T then it becomes blank.

Does it make sense?

I attach the skin for you to have a look.

Yes it does make sense. Unfortunately there is no workaround for such a situation at this point.
