    So instead of showing different artwork for each individual season, when I put my "TV Shows" section of iTunes into Coverflow every episode of every season is represented by the same album artwork. For example, when I select an episode from the third season of LOST the second season artwork appears instead of the third. It didn't use to be this way. How can I fix this problem? Even though it's not really that big of a deal, it's kind of frustrating and I like browsing everything I own in iTunes in Coverflow.

    I still haven't found a fix to this problem!

    It's so annoying! I want different artwork for each individual season!

    Are your TV shows marked as more than one season? If not, try to fix that.

    Shift-select all the episodes in a season.

    Right-click and take "Get Info".

    Drag your desired art to the little white "Artwork" square.

    Hit "OK".

    Repeat for episodes in the next season.

    Also, take a look at your "artwork" tab for a single episode (Get Info -> Select Artwork Tab). If you've been dragging art to the main Artwork window in iTunes (without shift-selecting multiple episodes first) your art is added as "secondary" art. You can delete the default images here until only yours remains.

    However, for some reason if you shift-select multiple episodes first THEN add art, it overwrites the existing art... don't ask me why.

    I'm having the same issue at the moment. I've got the tv shows "show" column all the same (Family Guy), yet the "album" columns are specific to the season, or volume number (Family Guy, Volume 1, etc.).

    All seasons have their own artwork, but in coverflow, only one shows up.

    If anyone knows how to fix this without retitling the show names (which will fix this, by the way, i just don't like all the different show names on my ipod), please let us know.

    You can change the art using the method I described above, but it still won't work in Coverflow. I think Coverflow picks off the first art it sees in the "show" and assumes that's for the entire series so it shows you that.

    This is why I changed my art to just screen caps of the opening titles rather than the box art for the DVD release. At least that's common to the entire series (usually, anyway).

    Same problem here, the artwork is shown correctly in the little mini browser deal but never in any of the other views... they always just show artwork from the first season added, even if multiple seasons each have their own artwork per episode.

    Definitely annoying.

    It didn't used to be this way though.. It's almost like it's a bug or something... It's really strange.. Not only is it like this in "Coverflow" but it's also like this in "grouped with artwork"..

    Something like this shouldn't annoy me, but it definitely does..
