    loading scripts

    Yes, you can load scripts where you don’t have some of the movies. It just won’t add those scenes to the script. If you don’t have any of the movies in the script it should have no scenes. Does the above script actually play? John

    I didn’t see where previously you had said you were set up to scroll alphabetically. I always do the default way and can always get to the movie I want by scrolling in one direction. If I want to check alphabetically, I use either Collections or List view. I can see how your request might be...

    I have had new CD’s added that we’re not recognized but did add artwork a few days later (but no added details) so somethings are still being updated. I haven’t noticed any artwork disappear. John

    M500 catalog issue

    It might work to just “pair” the M500 through the network with a Strato without physically connecting with a co-star switch. Good luck! John

    M500 catalog issue

    One other thing, I have my M500 paired with my Strato/Terra system. This could be the difference since the cataloging was added once the Encore system was out. John

    M500 catalog issue

    That’s strange then. There have been a couple of discs that ot took a while for the pop-up menu to come up for some reason but it came up eventually. Otherwise, I can’t think of anything else it could be. John

    I have both a M700 and M500 and I can catalog discs with my M500. When you look at the M500 through the browser interface do you see the following “Importing and Cataloging of Discs: Allow”? John
