    Has anyone found that TV Shows are being lumped together as unknown in the iPod app. when you go into unknown all the shows are listed, the names are correct, the season number is correct but all the episode numbers are 0.

    The naming and numbering is correct in iTunes and worked previously in 4.1. I have also tried a restore and set it up as a new phone but still get the same issue. Anyone else have this?

    Ok just figured it out after trying lots of sorting options, you now have to put the name of the show in the Artist field as well for it to group shows properly on the phone.

    I don't know why with every version of iTunes they always mess around with these little things.

    Very annoying and pointless!

    Thanks for figuring it out, it drove me crazy that I Restored my iPhone 4.

    4.2 TV Sorting

    Thanks everyone for posting the solution. It was annoying me and should have looked here first when I realized something had changed.
