On these forums I use the DVDIMG tag to display little images of the cover and (as per the Additional Tags info to the right as I'm typing this message I use it in the format:

{dvdimg UPC="5039036044035" LOCALITY="United Kingdom"/}

where { and } are [ and ] in use as in this example which should show the image:



The area I need help in is when there is no UPC, only a Disc ID... I know I have done this in the past successfully for profiles without UPCs which have different cover art to the outside box for example (so are submiitted under disc ID), but it's been so long that I have forgotten how to do it.

Can anyone help me please?

I don't know, but here's a shot in the dark:
Try "I" followed by the disc id, e.g. UPC="ID3AE8E7A9135CBC3" (or possibly UPC="ID3AE8E7A9135CBC3.4") for the recent Eureka release of Police Story.
That's just a wild guess, but that's what the ID looks like in the XML export.

Here is an example for US "Allegiant" Blu-Ray



In DVD Profiler, the disc ID can be used as a valid "Profile ID", as a surrogate for UPC/EAN.

The format is the letter "I" followed by the 16 digit disc ID. Locality can be appended, just as for UPCs.

You can substitute anything you find called "ID Base" in the XML for the "X" in the additional tag for UPC.

(Seems that Gunnar types faster than I do. What else is new?  )
Thanks for your support.
