I have MP 1.2 installed with MyFilms 6 and the latest StreamedMP as skin.

I use DVDProfiler for my XML export. In DVDProfiler, I have the Boxset itself as a profile, with each film with it as a Child profile. When I export to XML and import to MyFilms the linking of boxset and the films is lost. Is there any way within MyFilms that I can recreate it?

I've seen mention in the wiki of a the Context Menu that allows you to create a boxset, however I don't seem to have this (I only get Context options 1-9). Even if it were there, would it just create a separate Boxset entity, rather than linking it to the item in the XML that I already have?

Any help gratefully received. I've been searching high and low for the answer.

    Hi Puhkipsy - welcome to MediaPortal and My Films!

    IIRC the create a boxset/group context menu options apply only to catalog types where you can update your catalog in MF (i.e. AMC or catalogs created in MF via AMC Updater). Perhaps @Guzzi can confirm that? If so, I should make that clearer in the wiki, sorry!

    The question is, does DVD Profiler export the profile (parent/child) info? If not, then I doubt there is much we can do, because even if you created box sets in My Films that data would be lost whenever you re-export updates from your DVD Profiler catalog. Unfortunately every movie catalog app seems to use a different method for 'Grouping' films.

    MyFilms currently does NOT support any grouping from external catalogs.
    If this should happen, it would have to be added to the import filter of the respective catalog - DVDprofiler in this case.
    If it is possible depends on how the information is stored/available in DVDprofiler export format.
    If you send me or post a sample catalog, I could have a look into it.

    MP1 MP2 MP2 DLNA status? DE
    What I meant is that we have a MP2 plugin called UPnP Render that can play media from DLNA servers if I remember correctly. I don't know the current state of the plugin though. That's why MP2 probably never will be certified. ;) Yes, that was also the idea, but it is a big job as all TV's, software etc. seems to not do everything...

    I'm a returnee to MP after several years and want to use my CEC remote box. I have the mpe1 files but have no idea where to copy them to. Can anyone point me in the right direction as my memory of the config is hazy and probably out of date anyway.

    Guzzi, Thanks. I'll give that version a whirl. In the interum, I used the Ember interface to readily add a Catagorey to movies that were missing one and then set the Start and Stop Keys on the AMC Updater Detail page to <director> and </director> for those fields that were still misbehaving - Ember doesn't easily allow adding missing...
