I have found it easier to just add titles to the app instead of always syncing with the windows program. As for some reason either way (with windows or with online) it takes several attempts to complete.

I also keep my collection numbered by title so have to renumber my collection after every purchase. So I would really like the ability to renumber by title in the Android app.

Question: Wouldn't the CPU power of a PC or laptop do that more effectively? Then when you ran a sync, even it took a couple tries, your database would be in the order you want.

Have you tried running your sync with the mobile device plugged in? At least on my phone, it keeps it from  going to sleep and timing out.  That might help your situation.
Just a thought.

yes... I have tried it with it plugged in... while it helped it to run longer... no it didn't make it finish. I also have the laptop set not to go to sleep and not to go to screen saver.

With a collection like yours this is about the most inefficient way to number a collection.
Especially since this way my (the) two most used sorting algorhythms (alpha and collection#) will give exactly the same result.

I have a significantly smaller collection and even on my shelves I sort by purchase date, since this prevents me from having to re-sort my shelves every two days.
Renumbering, this way, only is required on the few occasions that an item is sold (or otherwise permanently given away).

EDIT:
Granted: My sorting method actually requires DVDProfiler when wanting to find a title.
It all seems so stupid, it makes me want to give up!
But why should I give up, when it all seems so stupid?

You make that sound like because I don't sort in a way that YOU find efficient that it don't matter. 

Not everyone likes to do things the same way.

Not even sure why you even posted this to me. You think I was going to change the way I have always done things because you feel it is inefficient?

I like my collection to be clean and numbered in order and titles in alphabetical order.

The desktop program allows this and I would like that same function for the android app.

No offense meant.

Just wanted to show up an alternative (imo: better) sorting option.
And this only because sometimes users tend to lose their way in the mass of options a program has.

Been using this program for so long... believe me... I know the many options. But the one I use is what works best for ME.
