    In iTunes itself this isn't a problem, if I have multiple seasons of a TV Show iTunes shows one folder or picture for the entire series.

    Click that and then it expands to show the individual seasons.

    I thought my AppleTV used to do this as well ( I've been watching more Movies than TV Shows so I can't remember )...
    At least now when I go to TV Shows and browse "by show" it shows each individual season down the list of TV Shows.

    Isn't there a way to have them grouped, it may be in the metadata, that when you browse by show in Apple TV that you will see the listing as:

    Lost
    Friends
    Top Gear


    rather than:

    Lost Season 1
    Lost Season 2
    Friends Season 1
    Friends Season 6
    and so on

    Is this achievable so that it only lists each show name then once you choose a show it will show the seasons?

    Im playing around with it right now, trying to find out. Right now I cant even put the same series into one folder thing. All seasons are separate in iTunes.
    You could create single playlists for each series though. Then when you open it it will expand to the separate seasons. Thats a possibility at least.
