Awesome, thanks JW, really really appreciate this. Presumably the press enter to exit for for batch mode (http://forums.gbpvr.com/showpost.php?p=266389&postcount=16) also been removed?

Cheers, really looking forward to having this run in scheduled batch mode-only now, yippee.

Yes. To force the Press Enter message, enter a -debug parameter, without the parameter, the message will NOT be displayed.

Arrgggghhhh sorry JW....

I get a System.MissingMethodException error running the batch mode.

My Batch (which I want to call from postprocessing eventually)


MovieWizManager.exe -Recordings -SyncArchived -SubDirs -Load:"E:\GBPVRVids;\\Theslug\disk 1\ArchivedMovies;\\Theslug\disk 2\ArchivedMovies;L:\ArchivedMovies"

I tried removing the missing dir \\Theslug\disk (file://\\Theslug\disk) 1\ArchivedMovies but it wasn't that.

btw you might want to correct two things in the readme

-Syncharchived option (i.e. add the d, just syntax)
You can only see help in batch mode when you type moviewizmanager -help -debug (otherwise it runs past you..)
Cheers,k.

Should be fixed in the attached version.

I just tried out the new delete a recording & it pops up a box, could you tell me which popup skin file controls this as my large text is way to big for it?

PasswordPopup.xml

I don't have a password enabled for delete. This popup says "Are you sure you want to DELETE this entry" etc. & altering the PasswordPopup.xml doesn't seem to affect it. I have had a look at the other popup.xml but can't find this one??

if (deletePwd != "")
nextPopup = new PasswordPopup(this,
"Are you sure you want to DELETE this entry?" +
Environment.NewLine + Environment.NewLine +
"The entry will also be physically deleted from disk.",
deletePwd,
"Delete Entry", "Cancel",
mSkinDirectory);
else
nextPopup = new PopupMessageBox(this, "Are you sure you want to DELETE this entry?" +
Environment.NewLine + Environment.NewLine +
"The entry will also be physically deleted from disk.", "Delete Entry", "Cancel");

If you have not set a password, then I use the generic message box that sub supplies. I believe its skin is located in skins2/blue/popup/MessageBoxPopup.xml.

On the History page for MovieWiz, you have 03/15/2008 as the release date for version 1.0.15.3 -- it should be 04/15/2008.

[EDIT (JW)]: Good catch, wiki updated.

Hi,

I must be missing something, but I can't see the following new feature ...
MovieWizManager - Add offline-id, for those movies with this field set, do NOT allow the play button.

Can anyone guide me? Sounds useful.

Cheers,
Dan

At work, so from memory:

Add Content tab, there is a new button, something like Add Offline
Click on that, supply ID and Title
On the Manage Content tab, you can now maintain the details for this entry
When in the plugin, the Play feature will not be available, the offline ID is stored in the Location field, so if you have your DVD's cataloged some how, you can use that ID when loading.

I see. Not quite what I was expecting.

How about an extension to this idea? A checkbox that allows you to mark a movie as no longer there - so no play button. In addition, a field that can be manually populated to hold the physical storage of the movie. e.g. Box 03-01 . This storage field would be applicable to all movies, not just those offline.

Thanks for a useful tool.

Right now, I detect that a movie is "no longer there" simply by looking at the location field, if the file does not exist, it is no longer there.

For those that we are designating 'off-line', I was trying to populate the location field.

Maybe I'm missing something here. I get the idea that your movies are sometime 'online' and sometimes 'offline'. Is this because you've defined your DVD drive as the file location? Or, do you periodically copy the DVD to disk, then remove and copy a different DVD to disk?

Hi,

My movie collection is a mixture of online and offline movies (AVI's and DVD images). My offline movies are populated via a dummy file, zero length. Needless to say, the offline movies should not be playable. They are extension ".offline". The online state of a movie is reasonably static.

I'd like to go even one step further and be able to manually edit the movie location field, too. :rolleyes:

Would the above approach cause you to deviate too much from your MovieWiz development goals?

Otherwise, I'm enjoying the MW experience. :D

Dan
