Maximum number of titles in list?

I was just wondering if there's a maximum number of titles that you can add to a custom list, and if so, if it varies depending on whether you have a free or pro account? I'm wanting to create a list of my blu-ray collection (350+ titles) and a list of my digital ultraviolet titles (700+ titles). It'll be a bit of job adding them to the list, but I don't want to find out so many titles in that I've hit a limit I didn't know about (i.e. if the max titles is 500, there would be no point in starting a list of my 700+ ultraviolet titles.)

Also, is there any way of seeing a combined list of the titles from several of my own lists? It'd be great to be able to see a combined list of all the films that I own, from both my 'Blu Ray Films' list and 'Ultravoilet Films' list.

Cheers,
Lee

As for the bit about combined lists, the advanced title search may be of use.

1.Click the three-dots sign to edit the list;
1.Check the boxes for all the items you want to be copied to another list;
1.Click 'Copy to' and select the list where to copy;
1.Enjoy the result

You could build a third custom list, using the copy feature in the edit window to copy items from the other lists.

I tried putting two list IDs in an advanced search URL, but this returns items that are in *both* lists:

Thanks for your replies. That's great that lists allow up to 10,000 titles, I don't think I'll ever go near that number, so it'll easily let me add to my lists through the years. In terms of the combined lists, I was hoping for a way to dynamically see the combined titles of both lists, so that I could use the 'refine' feature to e.g. apply a filter to look for films that I haven't watched yet, see what western I'm in the mood for, etc. If I have to manually copy films over to a third list (e.g. "All Films"), I might as well just simply add newly purchased films to multiple lists when I get them. For instance, if I purchased Rocky on blu ray, I'd search for Rocky on imdb, then click on the + button to the left of the title, select "Blu-Rays" list, then again click on + button and select "All Movies". That just seems a bit too much of a faff, it'll be involved enough as it is simply maintaining two lists to keep track of my collection. So, I think I'll just stick to the two lists, and search each one separately if need be.

Cheers again for the help!
