    All my handbraked tv shows synchronize under a single "album" in the ipod app after upgrading to 4.2

    Nothing happened to my show's tags. Free shows downloaded from iTunes are still categorized properly. Does anyone know which actual field iTunes uses to determining grouping on the iPhone?

    There are about 50 fields and im not about to go try them all.

    Same problem here. It seems the iPod app has changed the way it sorts videos. If you click get info on a video there are too info tabs, a general one and a video one. It used to use the video one to sort shows, now it seems to use the general info tab

    I got this too: I fixed it by setting the artist to the TV show name, and track number to the episode number

    This is quite horrible bug. As Phil A pointed out, there is a workaround, but it baffles me that none of the QA engineers nor beta users noticed it.
