    iPod Touch 2G Software V. 2.2
    Windows XP with iTunes v. 8.02.20

    I downloaded a "TV Show" to the iTunes Library\TV Shows. I also have a copy of the same TV Show in iTunes\Store\Purchased.

    I also downloaded a Podcast to iTunes\Library\Podcasts.

    I have Sync'ed to the iPod Touch and then pressed the Video button on the home Page and there are no videos.

    How do I get the tv shows & podcasts from the computer to the iPod?

    Thanks, Mike

    2G iPod touch
    Is syncing TV shows and podcasts enabled?
    Click your iPod in the sidebar and in the TV show tab make sure syncing is enabled:
    Repeat for Podcasts.

    If it is and still doesn't work, are you sure the videos are the correct format?
    Select the video to convert and create an iPod version:

    Salamantis,

    Many thanks. Your first guess was the right one: I had not "enabled" the syncing of TV Shows and Podcasts. That was an embarrassingly easy fix!

    Happy Holidays!
