    Greetings,

    I am synching videos to my Touch and I have an episode of a TV show (Weeds) that iTunes says is on the Touch but I cannot find it anywhere. Where do the TV shows go? I only see Movies when I touch the Video button.

    Where do they hide the TV shows???? Maybe I need to turn off the parental controls...LOL

    It seems that this functionality has been removed from the iPoT. Make sure that all your tv shows are marked as movies.

    Well that worked. That is strange because iTunes shows a folder for TV Shows but the video doesn't show up until you mark it as a movie.

    Wierd...

    Tv shows show up under all your movies. Scroll to the bottom of your videos page and your tv shows should show up in a new section

    In the Info window do you mean that I need to enter information on the Video tab (the tab where you specify Movie versus TV etc)? I'll try that and report back.

    The Touch is still being finicky about TV shows. I did get it to show up in the Movies section but it would not play. I am resynching the show to see if that fixes the problem.

    I also noticed a couple of other oddities in videos. Some movies that I have actually show screen shots from other movies. For example, I have the Nicholas Cage movie Next on the Touch. The artwork that the Touch shows is the opening screen from a DVD of Cisco Kid TV episodes. Might be time for the old Ctrl-Alt-Delete treatment on the touch...LOL

    SUCCESS!

    Well I guess I finally got the right mix and now the episode of Weeds shows up as a TV show and it actually plays on the Touch.

    Now to get the ascpect ratio so that it uses up more of the screen real estate.
