Is there a reason why certain actors names are highlighted yellow? Is there a way to fix this? Thanks

Support / Actor Info Disappearing
« on: April 05, 2017, 06:08:42 am »
I have been adding in the actors into the program. I recently got Beverly Hills 90210 (don't judge But I have been adding actors and have had to add in the character name. As I was going through the list, I suddenly realized the character names just disappear. Any ideas why they are going away?

Thanks in advance.

Feature Suggestions / Download For Actors
« on: December 11, 2016, 04:41:23 am »
I know this may be wishful thinking, but has anyone put together a database of actors for download? Something that has actors with all their info and a picture so people can download it to install into PVD? So people don't have to go through the effort?


Support / Help...Switch To Full Screen
« on: July 11, 2016, 12:33:17 am »
I hit the Switch To Full Screen Mode...and had to shut it down and restart it to get it back to the normal mode. How do I switch without having to shut the program down and restart? Thanks

Support / Not Downloading Movie Posters
« on: August 29, 2015, 08:55:21 pm »
I have been adding in movies recently and I noticed that PVD is not downloading movie posters from IMDB or Amazon. It will sometimes download movies from Filmup...but otherwise, I have to go hunting for the poster. It used to download when I did the import of info for the movie on IMDB...but not anymore. Any ideas?

Using PVD

Support / How Do I Get Just One Category To Show?
« on: September 14, 2014, 10:21:51 pm »
I used to know how to do this...but it's been a while and have forgotten. How do I get PVD to just show for example...

If I wanted to export just "A" movies on my list to HTML, how do I get PVD to just show "A" movies? "A" movies, then "B" movies, then "C" movies etc?


Talk / PAD? Personal Audio Database?
« on: March 16, 2014, 11:27:38 am »
Hey guys. You may have received this before...but have you ever considered doing a Personal Audio Database program that would work the same as PVD? I hope cd collection is growing...and I can't seem to find a good cd cataloging program. Thanks for your time.

Support / Actor Images?
« on: January 02, 2014, 10:26:41 am »
I have tried to start getting info about actors including images. I know there is some issue at the moment with imdb and not being able to get movie posters. But is this also with actor pics too? Is there another way to get actor images other than physically going to google or yahoo and DL'ing them myself? I know you can go through amazon to get movie posters, but there doesn't seem to be an alternative to get actor images. Any ideas? Thanks

Support / Just Not Working Anymore...
« on: November 04, 2013, 01:03:40 am »
I have been using PVD now for a few years and really enjoy since MBase2 stopped working a while back. Anyways, I had put all my movies into PVD and it's been a while since I have added more...and I have reinstalled Windows on my laptop once or twice and reinstalled my database. Anyways, tonight is the first time in a while that I have added any movies and I can't seem to get it to download any info. I have tried a few different plugins with no luck. I get this error "Error...Socket Error #11001. Host not Found." And I tried to download a poster from a couple different sites and I get "No movies found". I did notice that when I use imdb, it starts to download stuff, then I see a link "http://none" then I get an error. Any ideas?! Thanks in advance.

Support / Audio Version?
« on: January 01, 2013, 01:29:24 am »
Not sure if this is the right forum...but...I was wondering if you guys would ever consider doing an audio version of this catalog audio CD's? Something to think about. There are no free software types like this...

Thanks for any consideration.

Support / M Appearing in S?
« on: June 17, 2012, 02:30:41 pm »
I just added a few movies to my list and I was exporting them by Category...which I have 0-9 and A-Z. Everything was going fine, but then when I got to S, it exported, but the first listing on the exported files is "Murder She Wrote". I have gone through the S category and Murder She Wrote is not there...and Murder She Wrote IS listed as "M" category. Any ideas what may be causing this?

Is there a way to change the export files from HTML to PHP??

Support / Website Files
« on: June 13, 2012, 01:12:35 am »
I have created a website for my movies for my friends to see. I have started using PVD to create the webpages of each movie and categories. However I have a few issues. If I export via Web Pages (IndexMovies), and export all movies and images, and upload them to a directory on my site, the export say all PG movies via Web Pages(IndexMovies) and upload the index pages to the PG directory, when I load the main page of my site and go to the PG link, sometime the pictures are not the correct ones. I have noticed that if I load A category and B category and put the pics in the same images overwrites some of the images. The reason I want to upload all the pages/images into one directory is for the search engine I have. What can I do to prevent images from being overwritten? I can put the "index" pages in their own directories...but I need the movie pages to go into one directory...and images to go into one directory. Is this possible?

Thanks in advance

Will there ever be an update to PVD where you can dl info from instead of just the posters? Sometimes Amazon is the only place I can find all the info for some of the dvd's I have or get. Thanks.

Support / Saving Screenshots?
« on: June 04, 2012, 08:17:27 pm »
I have recently finished loading my movies from my old Griffith DB to PVD DB...which was no easy feat...1391 movies! is done, and while this isn't a HUGE issue, I thought it might be neat to get some screen caps. However, as I put in a DVD, put in the location of the DVD and then snap some screen shots...they don't seem to save. I see the thumbs in the left side of the screenshot maker, but when I close it, I can't find the screenshots. Any idea what the issue might be?? Thanks in advance.

Support / Alphabetical Order?
« on: March 27, 2012, 05:35:22 pm »
So I am loading my movies in and with some trial and error, I think I have it pretty much how I want it. Except for one thing. If I export as HTML Frames, it shows my movies in a list in alphabetical order. However, if I export my movies as Web Pages(Index & Movies), it shows the list of movies on the index all out of Adventures In Babysitting, Coma, Balls Of Fury etc...even if I just export the "A" movies, they are all out of sequence if I export as Web Pages(Index & Movies) . Any way to fix this in the code of the ptm files?

Thanks in advance.

Support / Additional Download Sites?
« on: March 26, 2012, 01:08:25 pm »
Ok...IMDB works well for a lot, but I also have DVD's that IMDB just does not cover. Like Workout/Exercise DVD's and some others that came from the Dollar Casper and 3 Stooges that I can't find on IMDB. So I was wondering, since I can 99% of the time find these types on, if you will have a plugin that will allow us to download info and not just posters from or DVDPalace or DVDEmpire? I get those 3 options in the Griffith program I use. So I was just wondering. This way, I wouldn't have to do it all manually. Thanks.

Support / Loading Pics
« on: March 22, 2012, 01:30:57 pm »
I am fairly new to PVD...but thus far I am very impressed...having tried many other database programs. Anyways, I have been loading my movies in...which will be a real feat since I have almost 1400...and I wasn't able to import any of the CSV, Ant Movie or MS Excel files I had. I was doing very well inputting my movies, until this morning when suddenly, PVD stopped getting the movie posters/pics. It downloads all the other info just about...but then when it goes to get the pic, it says "No Movie Found :(". And these are regular popular movies. So what is going on here?? I really don't want to have to take time to start searching for these pics. I even tried other site options when you go to search for/add a movie...I tried all the Amazons and the IMPawards. Still same result. Anyone else having issues? Thanks.
