Anyone else having this issue on their iPad?

I run my TV shows through a program on the Mac called iDentify which adds matadata have been using it for a while but since iOS 7 when I add the TV episodes to iTunes they are all in order by episode number but when I sync them to the iPad they aren't ordered by episode number anymore.

I removed the TV shows from the iPad then added them again and they were in order by episode but then if I go to add a new episode into iTunes then resync they are back out of order again.

Anyone know a fix for this? Not sure why it has suddenly started happening when it used to order then by episode number no problem.

Yeah, since iOS 7 came out, the TV show order got screwed up, with no apparent rhyme or reason how it works now.

What I've noticed is that sometimes the Episode number is displayed as 0 on iOS and sometimes it has the proper episode number. I have yet to determine how or why it loses the information.
