    I am currently ripping and tagging my TV shows before I buy a Apple TV. However, I have noticed that when I have tagged different seasons of a TV show, they are displayed separately in Front Row, even though each has the same title. For example in the following picture (apologies for the quality, I couldn't find a way to snapshot Front Row) the three seasons of the Office are displayed separately and the only way to differentiate them is through the video art. I am tagging as follows:

    Artist: The Office
    Album Artist: The Office
    Album: The Office, Season X

    Just wondered if I am doing something wrong or if when synced with an Apple TV, the seasons of TV shows will become more clearly organized?

    Nope, you're not doing anything wrong. Perplexingly enough, that's how it looks for all of us!

    Before the last (mid-summer) AppleTV update, the Apple TV would actually seperate out the seasons and state "Season 1" or "Season 2". I am very disappointed to see this feature gone (which appeared for the first time with v2.0). Apparently it is the same way in Front Row from your post. Makes it really difficult to tell the difference between seasons.
