Movies > TV Shows

How do I change the category which my newly uploaded Family Guy episode is placed under?
It's under Movies in my iTunes and I don't want to put it on my iPod until it is a TV Show.
When I click Get Info and go onto Info it gives me the option to change it into a Music Video but not a TV Show or Podcast.
Please Help!

You can't, for some reason, change videos to TV shows, in iTunes. The have to come that way, your converter has to change that, or you need a 3rd party file adjuster.

I don't know which.

I live with them being movies, or let TiVo Convertor convert them to mp4, which sets the tags correctly.

What would I convert it to if I used Videora to make it work?

You need to check the stickies at the top of the forum (hints, tips & problem resolutions). There is a work around that will allow you to do this.

Since you didn't bother to fill in any useful info in your profile, such as what computer OS you are using (not everyone uses Windows)I will assume you are using Windows and recommend iPodTVShow to fix your problem.

Try adding some useful info to your profile too.

If you had actually read the page I linked you to, the guy who wrote the program gives a link back to a thread here at iLounge. I bet if you were to go there and read you could gets lots of answers.

I knew that Mr. Synical. The guy below you gave me the answer I wanted to hear so shut up and stop patronising.
To Dale 42:
I open up the file by doing File > Open and I definately use the same file as my videos but nothing changes when I do it. Everything stays blank, even the box on the right.

Those are mighty big words for a n00b. Don't be mad at me for for your own shortcomings.
