This thread is the greatest idea of the last 6 months! 

You should ask Ken for a pin.
It all seems so stupid, it makes me want to give up!
But why should I give up, when it all seems so stupid?

I'm not sure I understand this one: "Not" or "Exclude" filter Selection

Can't we already do this? (Click once on a box and something is included, click again and it's not....)

If that what he means then yes its been added.  It never used to be that way for genres (and features I think) but after someone (me, I think) requested it, it was added.

It's one of my top three feature wishes too. How did I miss that!? Now added.

I really would like to see a way to enter two more details according commentary tracks.

a) subtitles
It would be very helpful to select in which language commentary subtitles are, like "Commentary (english)" or "Commentary (german)". Also it would be possible to enter not only one commentary subtitle when there are more than one commentary subtitles in different languages.

b) commentary itself
I also would like to see a little field where you can enter the persons which are talking in the commentary.  Like "Director Ridley Scott & Actor Russell Crowe". To keep the layout of DVD Profiler tidy, it would be enough, when it is displayed via "Mouse over" effect when pointing the mouse arrow at the "Commentary" audio track or something like this.

I'm not even sure this got requested yet, but in thumbnail list mode it would be nice if left arrow / right arrow would skip to the previous / next row if you're at the first / last profile in a row to allow for browsing the list in the sort order instead of the kinda arbitrary right,right,right,down,left,left,left,down... order

I'd still like two more filters:

1) Collection Number from-to
2) Purchase Date from-to


And what I sometimes really wanted to have is a feature that disables the box hierarchy and shows all items in a flat list.

I would also like a feature, where you could flag some movies, and then choose not have them shown in the Online Collection.
I don't want all my child profiles shown online, so it would be nice to have the option.
