    hi, small problem here, but in the last iteration of front row, I could name all the episodes from a single show the same, and designate the seasons within the album name. Then, I would navigate front row and it would give a different section for each season.

    The new front row in leopard doesnt do that...fine, no big deal, I'll just name each season (ex. Futurama, Season 1)

    Now, I can navigate each season in front row, great.

    But, for some strange reason, front row orders them backwards, (mind you, i have all the episodes numbered correctly), it just has them in reverse order for some reason...episode 18, 17, 16, 15 etc...you get the idea

    Is there any way to fix this?

    Unfortunately not :(

    It is really annoying, I'd finally spent the last few weeks converting my videos to MP4 so I could play them on my iPod touch and in the TV section of front row only to realise how rubbish they have made front row in leopard. What was wrong with TV Shows > Show Name > Season Number > Episodes :'(

    The reason they are in reverse order is because they are expecting people to use it to watch downloads from iTS and so the "most recent" makes sense at the top as that is the one someone is more likely to want to view.

    heh, thanks, atleast i know i'm not alone.

    now that you say why they are ordered that way, i guess it makes sense...but they should just have all unwatched episodes (the ones with the blue dot next to them) at the top of the list and have all the rest ordered the right way.

    sigh...oh well.
