Hi

 

I have had a quick search hopefully no one hasn't asked this.

 

I have a number of 3d and non 3d films. To identify them I change their title adding "3d" to the end and put them in a genre called "3d", after this i block the server from updating these aspects. I would love to see the functionality that enables these films to be displayed as one in the library and then you are asked which version you would like to watch. 

 

Is this possible at the moment or if not can I make this a feature request?

 

Thanks

Yeah good point but doesn't help for films like Harry Potter that are already in a collection.

 

(btw i clicked 'report' by accident thinking it was reply)

Good point, I don't think nested collections are possible. I guess you could make 2 Harry Potter collections, one normal and one 3d?

I've added different versions as "extras" so that they show up on the same screen with the version I watch more often as the main title.

Interesting I'll have a look into extras as i haven't used them before. Are you able to see all films that have a 3d version?

So was able to merge the films so there was a '2' icon on the poster rather than separate films but as I mentioned in a different question I would like to option to choose which version (would also be good for 4k versions too) as I couldn't find a way to make the system play a 3d movie in this setup.

 

I will go back to my old setup until this is implemented. 

 

Thanks
