    I have an iPhone 4 and an iPad 3, and in both cases the upgrade to iOS 6 has caused all of my TV show episodes to be ordered alphabetically, instead of in episode order.

    I should mention that I created all of these videos and did not purchase them from the app store. I haven't had a problem since the iOS 4 update that fixed it a couple of years ago. I'm hoping there is just a sort order option they've added and I won't have to wait for another update again.

    Has anyone else experienced this? Any ideas on how I can fix it?

    Same temporary fix as last time

    I'm sure this will be fixed in iOS 6.0.1 (sad that they made the EXACT same mistake, and couldn't prevent it from being re-introduced), but the fix in the mean time is the same as before. Just go into the Info for each episode, and make sure to set the Artist to the name of the show, and the first track number field to the episode number (the second track number can be left blank). Once you do this and resync, all your TV episodes will now show in the correct order.
