New Collection: Titles available to redownload

I have a 6TB Strato, and I find that I'm now regularly needing to delete 4K content to make room for new. (Yes, I know this is a total First World Problem and that I should just upgrade to the 12TB or a Terra!) One thing that would be really helpful (for me at least) would be a new collection that just shows all of the titles that are in your movie store library that are available to redownload hat aren't already on your server. At this point I've deleted so many titles, I can't really remember all of them. Would anyone else find this helpful? I know I can brose the "movies I own" collection at the Movie Store, but I'd love to have access to see just the content that I own that isn't on my server on the OSD if possible. Would anyone else benefit from this...?

Kevin is correct, most owners miss the "not downloaded to" filter option, but that's the option that allows you to see what you own in the Store that is not currently in your system.

Thanks! Is that on the Web GUI, or on the OSD? I'd love to have a pre-made "collection" in the Strato that displays these titles so I could quickly browse through all of the movies I've bought but no longer have on my system...

Yeah, as far as I can tell, the "not downloaded to" filter is only available on the Kaleidescape web store. I'd really like a collection or library view on the actual device itself that offers a list of undownloaded movies.

Actually, that's a great idea, engineering should look at adding that feature.

I agree that this would be nice. I could see where this could be hard to implement. Even on the Store you can be get ambiguous results depending on what you are trying to find. If I search “M Movies” and “Not Downloaded” I get pretty much every movie I own because I normally have only one version downloaded (either 4K or HD). If I also limit it to “UHD or better” then gat all 4K movies that aren’t download (which is usually what I want).

It certainly would be nice to see this on the actual system.

Aye, +1 for this too - I'd love to be able to see ALL my movies on the OSD even if they aren't downloaded. Greyed out or something. A toggle setting to turn it on and off too. So as well as getting the "insert disc" prompt in the title details for cataloged but not imported discs, perhaps "download now" could be shown?

Agreed, this is my ideal way that this would be implemented.

This is a great suggestion. :)

Cool - glad it's seen as a good idea - bit of positivity helps a lot in many ways right now :)

What you say @MikeKobb ? Any chance to add/bump this on your Backlog?
