Hello - I need some help understanding if MyMovies is functioning as designed for Discs I own that are TV Series.

I'm on MyMovies 5.40, Windows 10 Pro (version 21H2) build 19044.2486 x64

We'll use Mankind The Story of All Of Us as an example.

I have Mankind The Story of All Of Us on Blu-Ray Disc (Barcode: 031398851110). I think I have had it in my database for a while. So I deleted it and tried to re-enter it using the guidelines here: https://www.mymovies.dk/how-to/written-documentation.aspx?Page=Connecting_DiscTitle_to_TVSeries

So I entered the Disc Title using the barcode ID. It already comes up as a TV Series and has the appropriate buttons for selecting the TV series to match it to and the button for editing the Title Episodes. I click Save. I clicked the button to match the TV series and typed in Mankind The Story of All of Us. Click Save Again. However, it does not add a TV Series underneath the disc, nor does it add it to the TV Series Grouping.

The same happens with Band of Brothers, The Pacific, Heros, Battlestar Galactica, Planet Earth.

Can anyone tell me what I'm doing wrong?

I think the problem is that even though you have linked it to a TV series, you don't yet have it linked to episode data. Until episode data is linked, it doesn't reveal the TV series underneath.

Two ways to link it to episode data:

A) [Recommended] Use the Discs(s) button to link it to the source DVD/Blu-Ray, and then map the episodes.
B) [Alternative] Click the new "Edit Episodes" button that showed up next to the TV Series button you clicked before, and then Add episodes manually.

As soon as you do either A or B, even if just for a single episode, you can click save and the TV Series, Season, and Episode data will appear in the tree beneath the disc.

If you're curious why A is recommended, it's for those of us that play episodes from disc or ISO or folder rip, by having it mapped then we can directly play the episode without having to use the disc's menu, which can be klunky. My software, CMC, uses the My Movies disc episode mappings to permit direct play of episodes, it's pretty awesome.

The B option exists so that if you don't have the discs to map episodes, and no one else has already done it for you, but still want to access the episode data, you can.

Hope that helps.

If you dont have the discs anymore and you ripped your movies to iso. You can use a software app called virtual clone drive to run your iso like a real bluray or dvd drive. You then refer to the virtual clone drive drive letter to map each season's episodes. If you do use the mapping method, you will need mpc, or mpc-be. Just use your favorite web searching tool "google, bing.." to find these software tools
