Please allow to add a "File" Media-Type to be able to add movies that are bought online (e.g. iTunes Movies). Perfect would be the possibility to import a movie by its title (as DVD or BlueRay) and then change its type to "File" or similar

To do this you'll need DVD Profiler for Windows:
- Select Tools->Edit Media Types and add a File media type
- Add an entry by title by unchecking the download from Invelos checkbox at the bottom of the add by title window
- Copy the details from another profile by using DVD->Copy and DVD->Paste, and then change the media type.

Hmm - too bad. Why is this not possible in the iPhone Version of the software? Compared to other iPhone software it was pretty "expensive", an since I hardly use my windows computer at all, I am not willing to spend more money on the windows version, only to be able to add ONE additional category for my iPhone database.

If you have a PC or a Mac with Parallels or VMWare, just download and install DVD Profiler for Windows and set this up per the instructions above.  A purchase of desktop is not required.

Thank you for the quick reply! Sorry - I think I got confused on you homepage. I thought I had to buy a license to use the software. But great - then I will try installing the software and syncing my iPhone with it. Thanks!

I've done this on the PCversion and have successfully created custom icons and banners to indicate the place of storage of the movies. But I cannot get them to appear on the iOS version when syncing. What's the trick to that? Or is there no way?

I had some issues with custom icons (I have never done banners). They have to be PNG and a reasonably small size like 60X32 or 40X32.

Yes that is strange, I created custom media types for Laserdiscs, DVD-Audio discs, Superbit discs, and SACD discs and they all worked fine for me using PNG's in those resolutions.

Maybe some of us could share some of the banners or icons that do work here?

I would like something to define me AppleTV Media, but my icons or banners do not seem to work.
