Don’t blame Apple for not providing the video in the UK.  Blame the content providers for not giving Apple the right to distribute them elsewhere.

So what is the trick to get it copied to the iPod? It is sitting in my iTunes and when I sync up, it never gets copied over to the iPod. There is no ‘TV SHOWS’ category on the iPod, I even created a playlist and it doesn’t show up in there. Additionally, my iTunes shows XX2 files in my library, but my iPod only shows XX1 files.

So something is jacked with the file…

dave, i think know what your problem is…you might not have the latest version of itunes and if you do, uninstall it and then reinstall or you are not allowing the ipod to receieve video files, which you can change in your “Preferences.”  let me know if any of this worked/helped.

I do have the latest version of iTunes.  I played around some more and found that if I set my iPod options to MANUALLY update, I can drag the file to my iPod and then it does show up under a newly TV SHOWS category on the device.

But as soon as I switch my iPod options back to automatic update, it syncs and then the TV SHOWS category and Lazy Sunday video both vanish.

This is frustrating because other videos I’ve made on my own transfer over just fine.

Dave, the iPod is probably programmed for watching TV shows as TV shows, meaning you only would watch an episode once. As soon as you’re “done” watching, and resync, the shows disappear.

No, it is not that minty.  Something weird is going on.
