Hi all,

In the current iOS 5, Videos -> Shared -> TV Shows is completely broken and it repeats episodes, misses entire shows, etc. Is this fixed in iOS6?

I can't seem to get the home sharing to work at all with neither my iPhone 4 nor my iPad (3) running iOS 6 BETA2.

I fixed Home Sharing by tagging Artist and Album Artist as the name of the show and the Album field as Show Name, Season Number.

PITA but it worked.

Not working at all in iOS 6 so far.

It's unbelievably messed up. I'm pretty surprised this made it out the door but Apple seems to have no interest in fixing it. Really bizarre.

Not just in beta. Home sharing is not working for me with the update now

They seem to mess up home sharing every time they release a new version of iOS or iTunes, but it does seem even more broken than usual now!

Incorrect cover art on movies, TV shows in the wrong order, incorrectly labeled, etc, etc - it's completely unusable as it is at the moment.

I've created a web share pointing to my iTunes library and access it through that for now, which at least keeps things in the right order and lets me find stuff

Yeah, I've done everything I can to get this to work and the shows are totally eff'd up. Wrong art, titles, totally jumbled. I mean, I've got album art showing up in TV shows, and when I try to click through... no response.

Considering the primary reason I have an iPad is to watch my TV show library in bed each night, the reason for my frustration should be clear.

Has anyone found a fix or work-around yet?
