Shared TV shows not sorting properly on iPad (iOS 4.3)

Anybody else having problems getting TV shows to display properly on the iPad when accessed via Home Sharing? I've noticed two problems in trying to do so:
1. The iPad is sorting by artist name instead of show title (my 3G iPod touch does the same thing).
2. A handful shows are overwhelming (for lack of a better word) others, such that instead of seeing listings for 12 shows, I see 6 listings apiece for 2 shows. This problem seems to be linked to shows with a series name in the form "X-[something]", such as the X-Files. So far I've been unable to fix this, although messing with the "sort artist" field has shown some promise.
Anyone else experiencing this, or have solutions that fall short of removing whatever shows are causing the problem from my library?

Michael,
The one field that I did not have to alter for any episode whatsoever was the "Episode ID" field.
I left them as they were. 
My episodes were showing up in the proper sorting order, but not showing up together.
For example Once Upon a Time Season 2 would show up twice on my iPad.
Some of the shows in one icon, the other shows in the other icon.
Both named the same with the same icon image.
I painstakingly viewed the Summary, Info, Video and Sorting fields of all the problem TV Series episodes and of the one TV Series (Once Upon a Time Season 1) that viewed correctly in Home Sharing.
The fields that had no data or different data were the fields I mentioned above:
Album
Sort Name
Sort Artist
Sort album
Things like the Sort Name (Evil Queen) would be different from the Name (The Evil Queen).
Or Sort Name would have no entry at all.
Album would contain data, Sort Album would contain no data or different data.
I made sure that the fields on the right contained data identical to the fields on the left.
This is how the data is on the one TV series that showed up correctly in Home Sharing, so I figured it had to work.
I turned Home Sharing off on all devices and computer.
Quit iTunes. Relaunched. Activated Home Sharing on the computer, then on my devices.
Now the TV Series' that I own shown up correctly in Home Sharing.

  • Why is my Numbers spreadsheet not sorting properly?

    I am working with a sheet and want to sort the sheet alphabetically by a column that is formated as text.  It is not sorting properly.  What am I missing?

    It is a column of words which are names of catagories of medicines.  When I sort the list alphabetically, part of this list seems to sort correctly and then the rest is unsorted.  The column that I am sorting on is labeled.

  • Albums are not sorted properly by their titles

    I'm using itunes for windows (the latest version).
    And I have a problem with album sorting - they're not being properly sorted by their titles.
    As you can see it from above, I'm grouping music by genres and inside one genre (in this case, piano sonata), I want to sort them with their titles.
    I chose the option which says it sorts by title, but as you can see it's not working properly.
         Chopin (C) - Schumann (S) - Liszt (L) - Barber (B)...
    Actually most of albums are sorted correctly, but only some of the albums seem to be put on the wrong places.
    Is this problem known and is there way to fix this?
    It's not a critical problem but it's quite annoying for me...
    If there's a way please let me know.
    Thank you!

    HJ Lee,
    For one of the  problem tracks, right-click, Get Info and look at the Sorting tab.  There may be information there that is overriding the main tags. 
    If so, you can edit it in that tab.

  • My contacts will not sort properly on Macbook Pro

    Greetings all,
    I'm still trying to learn  the Mac OS, only been on it a couple months. Here is my issue, on the Macbook, my contacts will not sort by first name.
    On my iPhone and iPad, and when I log in to the iCloud and look at my contacts they are all sorted by First Name, and listed as (First Name, Last Name).
    When I go to the Macbook contacts they are sorting by Last Name... I have removed the contacts from my computer, unchecked the contacts rebooted, re-activated  the contacts on cloud and they still do not sort the way i want them too....
    Can anybody help me please.

    You helped me figure it out, I fill like a putz, I did not realize that the Contacts on the Mac OS, actually had its own settings.... I thought they were all controlled by the iCloud settings....
    I'm slowly but surely getting things figured out, after using Windows all my life.  Thanks a million.

  • External HDD: Shows not ejected properly when the drive is still present

    Hi,
    I have a Seagate 500 GB external HD, the big one with power adapter. I connect to my MBP with a USB cable. Recently, every now and then, I am seeing the message "Your external disk was not ejected properly. Always make sure you eject blah blah..." even when the disk is firmly planted onto the Mac. I can see the disk in my desktop and finder. But keep getting this message nevertheless.
    Another observation is - If I have Picasa open, Picasa fails to load the pictures in the external HDD when this happens. Pictures that has been earlier added to Picasa library, that is, which should ideally show up when the HDD is connected.
    Any ideas?

    Try a different USB cable. If that doesn't work, go to Seagate's web site and open a tech support request with them. If a new USB cable doesn't help, there is probably a problem with that disk drive such as outdated firmware.

  • Captivate project not running properly on iPad

    Hello,
    I built a project using Captivate 7.0.  When I published the project, I checked both the SWF and HTML5 boxes so the tutorial would run on an iPad.  However, when I view the tutorial on the iPad, the tutorial does not run properly.  The pages do not advance (even though, in Captivate, I have the slides advancing automatically - not on mouse clicks), all of the bullets on a slide do not appear, and the narration stops in the middle of a slide and does not resume.
    Do you have any suggestions?
    Thank you,
    Sarah

    Hi Joel,
    I removed all bullet animations and re-published the project (I checked the "Force re-publish all the slides").  My tutorial runs on an iPad, without the slides hanging up.  It appears removing the bullet annimations solved that issue.  Thanks for the suggestion.
    However, neither my music introduction on the first slide nor my narration on subsequent slides comes in.  I confirmed I do not have "mute" on and that my volume is up.  Also, I confirmed the sound works by running the tutorial on my desktop. 
    Do you have any ideas?
    Thanks,
    Sarah

  • Notes, contacts, and calendar not updating properly on iPad.

    I have a first and third generation iPad and a 5S iPhone And using iCloud to maintain calendars, notes, and contacts.
    Updates to calendar from iPhone displays on the first gen iPad, but not the newer gen iPad. Notes that I try to update using the newer gen iPad creates a new file  with the same name. Contacts work fine between the first gen iPad and the iPhone, not the newer gen iPad.
    iPhone one and third gen iPad have up to date operating system software installed.
    Any ideas?
    Thanks

    I meant to say there is not longer an option. I started saying that their contacts are not showing on the phone in groups.

  • Site not viewing properly on iPad

    Hi - i'm hoping someone can help me. The site i'm working on centers properly on everything i've tested except on my ipad. The beige background you can only see on the top and left hand side, but not on the right side. Also, there appears to be some fragmenting (?) going on where the background shows through in very fine lines around my tables. I'm wondering if there is any way of fixing this? Site link is www.theoldsaltboxco.com

    I don't have access to an ipad right now to verify the below, so this "may" not fix all of the issues (but it's a good place to start)...
    You have some errors in your html. Mainly the use of deprecated attributes like marginheight, topmargin and background. You should be using css for these instead.
    Code errors are the number one cause of display issues between different browsers. Run your site through this validator and clear out the errors...
    http://validator.w3.org/
    You are missing your Doctype Declaration (DTD). Go to Modify > Page Properties and select Title/Encoding. Given the code you currently have, I would choose HTML 4.01 Transitional or XHTML 1.0 Transitional.
    For the margin issues, remove all 4 of the attributes from the body tag and add this to your css...
    body {
         margin:0;
    For the background image issue, remove the background tag and add this to your css...
    #textarea {
         background-image:url(images/text-area.jpg);
    Then in the <td> for that text area, add this to the html in place of the background="images/text-area.jpg"...
    id="textarea"
    You can also get rid of all the border="0" on your linked images and add this to your css...
    a img {
         border:none;
    Since you are using tables for your layout, you'll need to collapse the borders in your css as well (this "may" be why there is that "fracturing" effect) Mobile browsers were invented after most designers stopped using tables for layout, so there are some items they were never really programmed to handle without explicit css instructions...
    table {
         border-collapse:collapse;
    If is still isn't working right after the above fixes, let us know and we can take a closer look.

  • Albums not showing up correct on my iPad iOS 5.0

    I have an origianl iPad with iOS 5 updated. Some of my music albums are showing up as two albums even though iTunes is showing them as one. How do I correct this. Keep in mind I have already selected all the songs in the albums and did a "Get Info" edit to make sure the album artist and album title were matching. I've even played around with the sorting options but have had no luck. Any help would be great. Running iTunes 10.5 on Windows 7

    Anyone?

  • Batches not sorted properly

    Hi All,
    We configured Batch management recently.
    We are sorting the batches by Manufacturing Date and Shelf Life Expiration Date.
    Batches are sorted corrected based on Manufacturing Date,
    But we are not getting proper results when we sort based on Shelf Life Expiration Date.
    Based on SLED, system is taking even the batches with the past date.
    Please find the example below.
    Batch      Manufacturing date          SLED
    B0001     27.04.2015                         27.04.2015
    B0002     28.04.2015                         30.04.2014
    In the above exmple, as per Ascending sort, system will pick up the first record, but the SLED is expired.
    We want the system to consider the Batches with valid SLED. It should not take batches with expired SLED.
    How to achieve this. Please suggest.
    Regards,
    Raja Durai

    The sorting itself cannot solve this, you have to define in the system properly your condition.
    With the help of the remaining shelf life charatcerisitc (LOBM_RLZ) you can define e.g., that only the batches with >0 remaining shelf life should be selected. Please read OSS note 33396 or e.g. this link:

  • Why are my albums not sorting properly on my iPhone?

    I'm running iOS 6.0.2 on an iPhone 5 with iTunes Match and my albums are sorting in a strange fashion. The only connection: they're all David Bowie albums.
    The problem is some, but not all, of my David Bowie albums are being sorted under the letter "P". Albums such as "Aladdin Sane", "Hunky Dory", "Black Tie White Noise", and "Diamond Dogs". 18 albums total are doing this and I can't find a connection other than the artist. I've tried renaming one of the albums to a single letter, such as "A" and that puts it under the "A"s. When I change it back to its original title, it returns to the "P"s.
    Does anyone have any ideas as to what is causing this?
    Thanks,
    ~M

    That didn't work.
    If I manually put songs on through iTunes it will show my Artist and Album but when I use my iTunes match it doesn't show it and also removes any I manually put.  It's all tied into iTunes Match.
    I tried removing all my songs from the cloud and then uploading/matching again but that didn't work either.  It's still broke when I turn on iTunes Match on my phone.
    The Songs are all messed up too, sorting wise.  I will have a random "B" song in the middle of the A's and then it goes back to showing the A's.
    Example
    A
    Almost Goodbye
    Almost Over
    B
    Baby
    A
    Almost Paradise
    Almost Perfect
    It's just really messed up.  I would love to start over from scratch and wipe everything but that didn't work either so I'm not sure what to do.
    I'm paying for the service?!!?!?!?
