Collection: Upgrade to Blu-ray

Posted May 28, 2013 07:26 AM by Webmaster

Blu-ray.comUpon request we have added an "Upgrade to Blu-ray" function for collectors. If you have a DVD collection you can now click "Upgrade to Blu-ray" and it will display all titles you own on DVD, but not on Blu-ray. This also works on bundles.

Great addition.

I honestly never saw the need of adding DVDs in this website in the first place. But thanks for the added feature.

keep up the good work.

If you have a DVD collection, you have to go to it first, and then it will be next to "cast and crew" and "collector matcher". It's a handy feature to see which DVDs I still have that have been upgraded to Blu-Ray.

Does this list the DVDs that you have in your collection, that are also/now available on Blu-ray? with all listings of the movie available on the database in perhaps a hyperlink or such ? If not than I would HIGHLY suggest adding that feature as it sucks so bad having to go through every single DVD and then come on to bluray.com and type the title in and search all countries to see if I can upgrade it.

If so I will immediately start adding in all of my DVDs (Will take me ages)

I wish there was some kind of a rating system that compared the quality of DVDs to their Blu-ray counterparts. It's not guaranteed that for a given title that the Blu-ray quality is a vast improvement over the DVD. Not all DVDs merit upgrading. The quality of both DVDs and Blu-rays can vary and the difference between DVDs and Blu-rays is not fixed. It'd be interesting to see a rating system that says something like "This BD is a +3 improvement over the DVD. That BD is a +7 improvement over the DVD."

I realize such a grading system could get complicated, especially with all the different editions. But still it's a wish of mine.

I love the idea

I see an issue with this and a possible bug. It seems it matches whether there is a Blu-ray in the database, not that one is available. Several of mine people have put in Blu-ray entries in the DB, but there is not one available.
Not for pre-order and not released

@Brooks5333 - Yes, if you get the CSV plugin for DVD Profiler, you can do the proper filtering in DBDP and export the UPC's. You can then copy and paste the UPC's into the Import function of this site

Hope that helps

So is there any way to find or add DVD titles that don't seem to be in your database? So far I cannot find; "Brain Donors," "46664: The Event," "Internal Affairs" (by itself, only found it as part of some triple feature.)

@Michael Allred
If the DVD exist in another edition/language version you can click the "Add new country/edition" link and fill in/change as needed. If no other version of the DVD exist you can click the "Add new movie" link and create a new entry.

Very nice, now how about a "Downgrade from Blu-ray" feature for all the BD's out there that have mastering errors and/or are the subject of film-revisionism, thus forcing me to revert to the preceding DVD .

I want to upgrade all my DVDs ... or 99% of them.... there's one documentary that I don't want to upgrade unless I find the blu for like $5... because it's a documentary and I've already watched it many times.

@Michael Allred
You can click it from any DVD in the database. Whenever you click "Add new movie" you will get a completely blank template.
If you click the "Add new country/edition" (for instance, here is one version of a "Brain Donors" DVD: http://www.blu-ray.com/dvd/Brain-Donors-DVD/56004/) you will get a lot of the information from the DVD, where you clicked the link, already populated.
Hope this helps!

What about displaying your UV collection under your blu-ray and DVD collections? I know it's viewable but only if someone clicks your blu-ray collection first.

I am not sure about this. I have more than 800 DVD's and to add them to the site would take an inordinate amount of time, so I am not sure I will use this. However I do like the idea in theory, and I do upgrade many DVD's to Blu-ray.

For those of you that is using DVD Profiler and want a (somewhat) quick and (really not so) easy way of exporting the UPCs for import into the br.com databases, I posted the following in the news post about the import feature:

-<>-<>-<>-<>-<>-<>-<>-<>-<>-<>-<>-<>-<>-<>-<>-<>-<>-<>-<>-

I also use DVD Profiler at home and while I didn't find a way to just export a list of UPCs I did manage a, slightly nerdy, solution (this works on Windows, don't know if you have tweak this for other operating systems)...

From within DVD Profiler you can choose to "Export Database", there you select the option to get every entry as a single XML file. You will get each entry as "UPC Number.xml" files. When that is done you open a command prompt and go to the folder where you exported the files and run the following command:

DIR /B *.xml > test.txt

you then open the TXT file, do a search and replace and switch out all ".XML" with "," and finally copy the content to the import window.

Done!

-<>-<>-<>-<>-<>-<>-<>-<>-<>-<>-<>-<>-<>-<>-<>-<>-<>-<>-<>-

Hope this helps!


Or you can get the CSV plugin for DVD Profiler as Scooter1836 suggested above (I haven't tested this myself, though).

I'm not sure is this is intentional, but some of my tv seasons on DVD show up on upgrade to Blu-ray as the last season (which I dont own) and the ones I do own arena there at all.

So..... No fix or acknowledgment of the bug I mentioned? The last season of Tv shows I own on DVD show up in Blu-ray but none of the other season which I actually do own.

For instance I own Vampire Diaries seasons 1-3 on DVD and on upgrade to Blu-ray is lists Season 4 but not seasons 1-3.
