In the New User forum yesterday I had asked for help regarding being able to create a custom "parent" title and being able to move "children" titles under it.  This was asked because I'm OCD (lol...kinda) and want to group similar titles together.

I received the solution I was hoping for, by changing the way I think and treating a group as a box set.  I created manual titles with, essentially, empty information, then assigned the child titles to that parent title.  So as I go through my collection, all of the James Bond titles (for example) will be grouped together instead of scattered alphabetically.

But I noticed that when I create a Manual DVD, the program is keeping a count of how many I have done.  I see this when go to edit the profile of a Manual DVD.

I don't have a screenshot to attach but I'm looking at one that says "Edit Profile - Manual DVD #31 - X-Men [Franchise]".  This is one I created to put all of the X-Men movies together.  But I don't see where the #31 can be removed.

It's not a pressing issue, more of just something that caught my attention and wanted to bring it up.  Can it be removed?

The number can be changed but not eliminated.  This is the "Manual ID" number, and every profile must have either a UPC number, a Disk ID number, or a Manual ID number.

You can change the Manual ID number by going to the DVD menu and selecting the Change UPC / Locality item.  On this dialog box you can change the Manual ID, but it must be unique.

As Scott says every profile must have an ID. It's just a principle of every database.

The profile ID will also determine the filename of the cover images on your hard drive.
