    I'm not sure if anybody has ever asked about this, so here it goes:

    On the 160GB iPod classic, when you go to VIDEOS, and then TV SHOWS, it usually shows you what TV shows are on your iPod, while displaying the appropriate album artwork right next to it (to the left of the show title).

    But if you have MULTIPLE seasons of one show, it usually just displays artwork from the earliest season for the corresponding show. So in my case, it's always "Season 1" artwork.

    So for example, in my TV SHOWS menu on my iPod, I currently have:

    Prison Break (All 4 seasons, iPod always displays SEASON 1 artwork)
    Heroes (All 3 seasons, iPod always displays SEASON 1 artwork)
    The Office (All 5 seasons, iPod always displays SEASON 1 artwork)

    So here comes the question:

    Is there any way for you to decide/set WHICH album artwork can be displayed, instead of it always being SEASON 1 for all my shows? Like I wanna make my TV SHOW menu look like this:

    Prison Break (displaying SEASON 4 artwork)
    Heroes (displaying SEASON 3 artwork)
    The Office (displaying SEASON 5 artwork)

    Is it possible to do that? Any help would be appreciated, thanks!

    this is just as a suggestion as i am not sure this will work...so here goes...

    1) open up itunes and go to the tv shows section (make sure you are in the grid view)

    2) Now if you have the album artwork for each series- when you move the cursor over each tv show- each of the series album artwork should show up briefly (like in iphoto when you scroll over an album and it shows the photos contained within the album)

    3) When the artwork for the series you want appears, hit ctrl and click- then from that- select- "set default grid artwork".

    4) Sync your ipod- and lets hope this works
