More serious about collection...

I have what might euphemistically be referred to as a Christmas DVD collection. I'm just about to research new players. I'd like to get a BlueRay player which plays everything and has a USB for cameras, thumb drives, etc.

Once that happens, I want to go after the better quality print runs of Christmas titles. I have some DVDs I'm about to donate to goodwill because the quality is...er...challenging. Some are good prints but other releases have added a lot of extra content.

So...I'm about to make a list of everything I have. I'll post here when done and hope someone can point me towards good material or confirm what I have is fine. Additionally, if folks can post here about the hard-to-find I would greatly appreciate it. It helps my focus as I get more serious about our Christmas video collection and maybe it will help others who are about to embark on the same journey.

Merry Christmas!

Have u thought about ripping your DVDs before getting rid of them? Some of them may be hard to come by on blu-ray.
I would love to see what you have, might give me some ideas for my own collection which is taking up a lot of space
I am not allowed to replace my DVDs with blu-ray

I may have been less than clear about what i was asking. I don't want to get rid if physical copies unless there are better ones to be had. Given discussions here, there would seem to be many horrible copies of some titles. I'm also trying to get an idea on what is tough to find and focus there first.

I have started to use an app called DVD Shelf. Still testing but thus far it allows me to scan the upc and catalog. Thus far, it needs work... and it has a few bugs. However, when it gets completed it will be on my phone and I won't but the same DVDs twice (again!).

Best of luck with your project HollyJolly! It sounds exciting.

I have been on the hunt for the Star Wars Holiday special. It was never officially released as a DVD so it will have to be a decent quality copy and ofcourse able to play in the UK. If you come across this or know of an online seller, I'd appreciate hearing about it!

I look forward to hearing about your progress on your collection!
