    Hi All,

    Has anyone else noticed, since updating to 3.1, the sort order for your TV shows are out of whack.

    In 3.1 your season number seems to be ignored, and instead episodes are sorted purely by episode number.

    I have 4 seasons of a TV show on my iPhone and with 3.0.1 they were all sorted by Season then Episode.

    Season 1, Episode 1
    Season 1, Episode 2
    .
    .
    .
    Season 2, Episode 1
    Season 2, Episode 2


    Now it looks like this.

    Season 2, Episode 1
    Season 3, Episode 1
    Season 4, Episode 1
    Season 1, Episode 1
    Season 2, Episode 2
    .
    .
    .

    Anyone have any idea on what metadata fields need to be used to fix this in 3.1?

    I have the same issue. 3 seasons of Peep Show, 2 of which I downloaded from iTunes, the other I took from the DVD I already owned.

    I've played around with episode IDs, Sort Name... everything I can think of. It will now show the 3 seasons separately in the Videos menu on the iPhone, but if you tap 'Peep Show Season 1' the next list is:

    Season 1, Episode 1
    Season 2, Episode 1
    Season 3, Episode 1
    Season 1, Episode 2... and so on.
