I customized a MS Works database for use with this home-recorded archive. At the moment there are more than 35,000 home-recorded titles. DVD numbering uses the date and finalizing sequence, e.g., the first DVD finalized today is 100921A and the second DVD finalized today is 100912B.
DVD 100921A has these titles:
THE RED SHOES 1948 TCM 9/20/2010
BLOCK-HEADS 1938 TCM 11/25/2009
DVD 100921B has these titles:
SEINFELD: THE FINALE (AND ONE UNIDENTIFIED EPISODE) KPDX 9/16/2010
THE LAST MAN ON EARTH 1964 POP29 9/11/2010
THEATRICAL PROMOS, TRAILERS, INTROS (VARIOUS) POP29 9/11/2010
The first DVD finalized tomorrow will be 100922A, with these titles:
WAY OUT WEST 1937 TCM 9/20/2010
TT: LOOKING AT LONDON 1946 TCM 9/20/2010
TT: PASTORAL PANORAMAS 1950 TCM 9/21/2010
A CHUMP AT OXFORD 1939 TCM 9/22/2010
SAPS AT SEA 1940 TCM 9/22/2010
This database allows me to locate the specific title I want to watch, locate and remove the DVD from it's album, place the DVD in a DVD player, locate the title on the DVD and start playing the title, all of which might take as little as one minute.
