    Did updating to 7.1 mess the order up for anyone else? now it only sorts by season, but in alphabetical order...whereas before itd sort according to the episode # of the show in the proper season

    this is VERY frustrating.......and happens to both tv shows bought from itunes, and copied for example, this season of lost....instead of going in order of the episode #, it is arranged alphabetically

    also, what is the blue dot next to the episode? all of my videos have it except for 4 or 5 of them.

    but what is the deal with it not playing shows in order based on episode #?

    The blue dot means its new, as in you haven't watched it yet.

    What are they arranged according to? If you click show, they should be in the right order.

    I must say, I'm not a fan of the blue dots.... They're alright in a podcast setting, but many shows (Lost, for example) have credit rolls that last a few minutes. Who's going to sit through all that? I just skip to the next one or close the window. Now all my shows are going to be taggeed as 'new'...

    This is VERY frustrating. The production number for mine are all correct, but the production number isn't the order they were aired! Why don't they sort by episode number anymore?

    they are now in order by the "episode id" field. it's a bit of a pain but I was able to fix mine by adding the episode number to the beginning of that field.
