June 23rd, 2016

  • Dark: A cool looking, modern design, with dark backgrounds, light fonts.
  • System: Keep things as it was, with the program following your Windows theme.

v16.3.1: Movies vs TV Series, Quick Filters and Dark vs Light Skins

June 8th, 2016


NEW: Movies vs TV Series

While talking to our loyal users, we often hear that, on their shelves, they are separating their movies and TV series. Hey, I do the same myself 🙂

However, in Movie Collector, the two are always all mixed together in the same list. So we figured, why not allow users to separate their TV Series in Movie Collector too?

So here’s what we created for v16.3:

  • Use the new “Is TV Series?” field in the Edit Movie screen to make a distinction between your TV Series and other entries.
  • Then use folders (or the new Quick Filter panel!) to show TV Series only, other entries only (or all together).


Please note:

  • The “Is TV Series” field will be automatically set for new entries that you add from Core using the Add Movies Automatically screen.
  • For existing entries in your database, the “Is TV Series” field will be automatically set based on the presence of either an episode list or a thetvdb.com link. You may want to check your entries though, to see if the automatic system missed some TV Series.
