    I have a ton of TV shows on DVDs, and lately I've been importing them to my iMac. iTunes only lets me set the title and season number of the shows one at a time, which makes for a very boring and repetitive afternoon. Does anyone know how to add TV Show titles and season numbers to multiple items in iTunes at the same time (already tried selecting them all and right-clicking, it brings up music options)? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    I hate to tell you this, but I had to do them one at a time as well, and never did find a way to do a lot of them at once.

    Have you tried opening them out of the itunes interface, using apple+i. I never tried that, but it may give you more options to change the info.

    I didn't find any other easy way to do it either. I had 6 shows with 4 seasons each to catalog. It took me the better part of an afternoon to do. I think that was the same day I decided to go insane and get album art for EVERY track in my itunes library. I think I slept for 3 days afterword! ;)

    A program that would help this process is desperately needed!

    ask and you shall recieve

    here is a applescript that allows you to batch set the series, season and episode numbers as well as batch change the kind of video

    also-there is a app called lostify that allows you to change the tags but you must enter the episode title and number manually-but can keep certain tags like series and such the same

    I found this app called "Parsley is Automatically Delicious". It gets the job done, but it's very buggy (IMO), but if you're in my situation, I suggest you try it out. I'm trying Doug's Applescript and Lostify right now (thanks cuestakid and pengu!).

    Okay- I tried them both. Lostify is nice because you can change every piece of info there is to change about video files, but I prefer Doug's script because it lets you change the files inside of iTunes. :apple: Mission Complete:apple:
