Back from vacation, totally in LOVE with the HTPC and Assassin's Guides! Have a few questions I don't *think* AG covers:
1. (I have not yet delved into XBMC, we're still "learning" WMC/MB/MCM, so if it has this feature and WMC/MB doesn't, just let me know and I'll hurry up and start learning XBMC, too!) Is there a way to search my movies? Such as if I want to see all movies actress Jane Doe is in? What about by category? I have a ton of exercise DVDs, for example, is there a way to display a list of them? Or a list of comedies?
2. How do you handle metadata for movies that don't show up on IMDB or the other databases? Or for a home movie, for example? I have a lot of indie(?) travel DVDs that aren't on IMDB, is there any way I could add my own cover images and summary that would show up in WMC/MB like the others do?
I have another question about funky DVDs that come up with a million titles that are all about the same since in MakeMKV, but I will wait until I come across another one to deal with that question! (The one that happened on is buried in my stack of scratched disks that won't rip, so I can't do it right now.)
3. How do you deal with scratched DVDs? (Or even not scratched DVDs that don't want to rip?) We have kids, and a lot of our disks are scratched. Most of them still work fine in a DVD player, but MakeMKV sees a problem with them and the rip fails. Is there a good disk repairer on the market now that someone could recommend?
