Help with video iPod.

This might be a really obvious question but here goes anyway.

I just bought a new video iPod and I've got a pretty good grasp of how everything works. My problem is to do with TV Shows. I have some I want to transfer onto my iPod. I converted them into MPEG-4 files using Jodix and imported them into iTunes. That went fine. I uploaded them onto my iPod - also went fine. But when I go into my Video menu on my iPod, the only options are 'Video Playlists', 'Movies', 'Music Videos', 'Video Podcasts' and 'Video Settings'. There's no option for TV Shows and that's what my shows are saved under on iTunes, so I can't access them on my iPod. Anyone know why there isn't a TV Shows option on the video menu? Should there be? If not, how do I access TV Shows then? I'm hopelessly confused.

I guess I could save the TV Shows as Movies in iTunes, but it seems pointless having the TV Show catagory in iTunes, if it doesn't translate onto the iPod itself. Am I making any sense?

on my video ipod, all the tv shows i've downloaded and converted without purchasing from the itunes store are listed under 'movies'. I think the 'TV Show' category will work for shows that you've downloaded from the itunes store e.g. Lost or Desperate Housewives. And actually, those files aren't listed in the 'video' section of the itunes library; they're just in the regular itunes music library list, with a little videocamera icon next to them indicating that they're visual files.

hmm. i have no idea if this helps, just another perspective. have you looked under the movies section?
