    Hi, I am a bit irritated by the fact that on a few seasons of my favourite TV shows, despite the season number being the same they are split up when in album view. This snapshot show season 6 of family guy showing up as 3 seasons. Anyone know how to fix this or why it is happening?

    Also while I'm here, is there any software for mass tagging .mov files, I know of ones for mp4, but I'm used to ripping my DVD's to avi, I don't much care for iPod watching.

    Thanks

    Have you tried for Episode name taking out the Family Guy and Ep Number leaving just the Episode Name nothing else in that field

    I took all that info out, I keep it there so I don't have to edit all the episode info one by one as well as everything else :rolleyes: but it then split season 6 into 4 groups instead of 3 :eek: so I had to change it back.....

    The only variable which differs in either info or sorting for these files is the Name field.

    I've had this probelm too when I loaaed Arrested Development onto iTunes. Delete all the files from iTunes and put them back on (If they're purchases, i don't know if it will work)

    Under sorting section:
    Artist: Family Guy
    Album Artist: Family Guy
    Album: Family Guy, Season 6
    Show Family Guy

    If that doesn't work
    Under Video Section:
    Show:Family Guy
    Season Number:6
    Show Id: 601/602 Depends on season and episode number Season is the 6 and 01 is the episode number
    Episode Number:1/2/3 Depends on episode

    I'll get screenshots of what mine look like so you can compare see if that helps

    OK. It's fixed, the variable that made the difference was "Artist". Seems strange, on any other shows this is also blank and does not cause any problems. At least it's a variable I can change en mass. Many thanks for your help northy124.
