Hey everyone,

I've searched around but haven't really being able to find a solution.

I have just imported a bunch of tv episodes from my dvd into iTunes. I was wondering, is there an easy way to change all of the current movies into tv shows, and at least name the tv show and the season all in one go? I find the way iTunes have it atm it would take forever...

I just did this... and the only way i could find was to do it one at a time. :thumbdn:

At least iTunes autocompletes fields if it's already in the db.

Doug's itunes scripts has a script called 'set video kind' unfortunately site is down at the moment. It does kind, show & season for multiple selections.
PM me your email addy and I can mail it to you.

Checkout MetaX (http://www.kerstetter.net/page53/page54/page54.html)
Batch processing of Video's for tagging. Works a treat

Just a quick idea of how to do what you are wanting:
Drop all the episode files onto the window
Make sure they are all selected.
Go to the Video Tab, and change the video type to TV, Enter the show name, season, actors (if you wish), etc
In the info tab, you can put things like Genre, Rating (PG, M, R etc)
You can also add artwork to the files which is what I originally got it for.

Once you have put in the common things, Select one of the files and you can enter the Title of the episode, a description and that sort of thing

Once you drop these files back into iTunes (or get info on it if it is already in iTunes), all the info you set will be updated
