DVDP v3.5 - Blank Genre
#1
I've upgraded to DVD profiler v3.5 and exported my XML, now on my movie browse page I get a blank genre as the first one. I can't remember exactly but I think the old version of DVDP only had 3 slots for entering Genres, the new has 5 slots.

If I click on the blank genre all but 3 of my movies are shown (196 of 199).

What genres do you actually have? If you look through the XML, do you see any blank genres?

Here is a snippet from the XML for one film, all the other movies have the same 5 sets of tags, some of which up to 4 actually have genre text.

<Genres>
<Genre>Drama</Genre>
<Genre/>
<Genre/>
<Genre/>
<Genre/>
</Genres>

OK, it's probably not filtering out empty genres or something. In the meantime, if you can find a way to remove those unnamed genres, or name them, that would get you going most quickest.

There doesn't appear to be a way to remove the extra genres in DVDP, it's just showing 5 select boxes.

At the moment it isn't a big deal to have the blank genre, it's just the first slot on the category browser is empty, it's a little untidy but I can live with it for now.

Having the custom genre in DVDP v3.5 outweighs having this bug, I've now added a genre for Blu-Ray to easily select BD movies from the CAB.

I have a post-DVDP XSLT transform to promote custom tags into genres so they show up in the Genre list in CQC. I am also trying to figure out the reliable XSLT to remove the empty genres, but if it were trivial to remove them in the driver on import that would be a big help.

I'll bet the three that didn't show up in the list under "blank" had all five slots filled in DVDP.

Just been digging into the 3 movies not on the blank genre category, the strange thing is the missing ones are the only 3 which have no genres set in DVDP?

In the XML it shows up as a single line <Genres/>

Perhaps the CQC XML import code is set to ignore one line of <Genres/> but not more than one.

OK, looking at it, there's a pretty obvious point at which a check would prevent this. So I added that. I've not tested it, but it's pretty obvious. Check it in the next beta drop and see if that doesn't do it.
