View Full Version : TV Shows not showing up on AppleTV

Nov 9, 2008, 10:21 PM
I downloaded a TV show using the TVShows app. I then converted the .avi file into a .mp4 file using VisualHub and imported it into iTunes. The file shows up as a movie file when it first gets imported into iTunes. I went to "get info" and changed it to a TV Show file. The file was then moved from my movies into the TV shows list. The file works great when I watch it using Quicktime and iTunes. The TV show even works when I put it in with my movies list on my AppleTV. But for some reason when I put the file as a TV show, it won't show up on my AppleTV.

Any ideas? Thanks.

try quiting iTunes and relaunching it.

ATV will reconnect and most likely will refresh the TV show

It didn't work to turn off iTunes and start it back up again. But I did figure out what the problem was. I guess I needed to tag the episode with the metadata in order for it to show up in my TV shows list.
