Support / All Plugins stopped working !
« on: April 17, 2018, 06:07:05 pm »
"Import Movie Information using IMDB (EN) pluging" button was the last to work but, today it also stopped working with the message "IO Handler..."etc. making the PVD unusable, except for manual copy/paste from IMDB, which is impossible.

Can anybody confirm that the Proxomitron solution works ?

Support / Plotsummary script bug.
« on: February 27, 2016, 05:43:40 pm »
I just noticed that by default the IMDB script adds in the "Description" field the words "Add a plot" in TV episodes which have not yet been transmitted. When the IMDB plugin worked properly (about a year ago), these words where overwritten by the plot (once Imdb people added the plot).

The latest plugin by Ivek (IMDB plotsummary) downloads nothing, if the words "Add a Plot" are not removed. You have to delete them, as they are not overwriten. Then the plugin works and downloads the plot summary.

Just to know.

Feature Suggestions / Backup status Line
« on: April 11, 2015, 04:34:15 pm »
Personally, I don't know when a backup has finished. There is no indication at all. Sometimes (in both versions 0.9.x and 1.x) the backup directory window, remains greyed and I wait for it to go away. Some times there is no indication at all....

How easy it would be to add a backup status (percentage or simple colored line)??


Support / Peculiar Numbering in PVD v.1
« on: April 10, 2015, 07:57:51 pm »
I am still trying to learn v.1 on my Windows 8.1

I don't understand why in the attached picture, the number of the episodes is 1.5, 2.5, and so on (Left in the list), on all Seasons, instead of 1.0, 2.0, etc. Number 5 is shown also on all the episodes Tab (Right side) above the picture.

Also, if I edit an episode, the number changes!

If anybody can help, I would be obliged...


Support / PVD and Windows 8.1
« on: April 02, 2015, 04:43:03 pm »
I have changed my old Laptop to a new one with Windows 8.1. I want to install PVD v. on it and transfer my PVD 9.9.21 "Movie File" or backup from my PC, to use it with the new version.


1) Can I do that? Is the v.9.9.21 data file compatible with PVD v. ?
2) Can I use the old version plugins copying them to the new version? Are they compatible?
3) If the data are not compatible, how can I transfer it? Is there any solution?

Many thanks for the help.

PS. Where is the "Star Sign" which enters automatic numbering (in PVD v.9) on the new v. ?

Support / Moving PVD to new Laptop
« on: March 08, 2015, 12:12:15 am »
I am using latest v.0.9 with Win XP and was obliged to move it due to Laptop break-down.

The new setup works as previously, with 2 exceptions:

1) The ID number is not shown before the title (on the Left Pane), as it used to show. Am I doing something wrong or missing something?

2) Can't find any pvdconf.ini file (!!??) on my drive(s).

If anybody could help, I would appreciate....


Support / Bugs report in latest IMDB (EN) plugin
« on: January 21, 2014, 09:34:58 pm »
1) If you import a new TV series, the year is not imported.
2) If you get information for a TV series Episode, the year is imported, but does not show on the list at left, till you Edit and save the Episode.
3) If you update a TV series, the year is completely lost.

Anybody else having this?


Support / IMDB People Plugin 03.0.20 of yesterday Biography bug (?)
« on: January 17, 2014, 06:26:49 pm »
I downloaded today the latest version, but it still gets the "short" version of the people's Biography from the first page instead of the full Bio.

Usually the first page is only 2 lines long, ending with dots (...See full bio). Then you have to go to the full Bio page to copy and paste in PVD the rest but you miss the links...

Can somebody tell me if I am doing something wrong or is the plugin supposed to work like that ? About 3-4 months ago it used to download the full bio.

Many Thanks,

Support / Best way to distinguish TV (& series) and Films?
« on: December 12, 2013, 02:06:36 pm »
OK. I've read many threads about it but which one is the easiest to mark a film as a "Film" and a TV film or TV series as TV?  ???

I would like to find an easy way so I can sort them with one click in the PVDB "sort by" list.

Any advice would be welcomed... :-\

Support / Bug of PVD or IMDB ??
« on: October 13, 2013, 12:47:57 am »
I have noticed that whenever a movie or TV episode title, has the word "die" in it, when saved in PVD The word "die" comes first.

Examples: Live and Let Die (James Bond) becomes "Die....". See first enclosed attachment.

TV Series: Atlantis (2013). Episode 3. "The Boy must Die". Result when saved in 2nd attachment.

When you look at the wording is correct !!!!

Anybody has noticed that or am I alone it happens??? PVD on Win XP Pro SP3.


Support / PVD 9.9.21 Export Fields -How to Do?
« on: May 08, 2013, 07:42:43 pm »
Hello All,

A couple of days ago, I "lost" my 6months old WD 1 TB "MyBook3" external Hard Drive, due to Factory failure (burned controler PCB). No recovery possible!!

I had about 100 films on it (out of a total of about 400 in my database). All of them are included in my PVD database under the field "Media Label: " where it is mentioned the "MyBook3" -the damaged one- (as I have "MyBook", "MyBook2", as well.

Haven't found a way to filter only those fields: ID, title, Year, Size (in MB) and Media Label, and Export them to CSV, to open them in Excel.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.....


Support / Backup indicator in v. ?
« on: March 27, 2013, 12:12:56 am »
Hi All,

While backing-up my PVD, I notice that every time it responds differently (with WinXP Pro).
1) Either the confirmation (to overwrite) Window remains greyed, or
2) The confirmation window disapears after clicking the OK button and nothing seems to happen (for some minutes). Then suddenly the screen is sort of refreshed and I can understand that the backup is complete.

Is this normal?

Could we have some indicator of the backup progress (i.e. a bar indicator)?

Thanks for any help.
