Is this a bug or an undocumented feature ?
The video app appears to use a "fit to width" algorithm for the "Info/Chapters" window. If your are trying to "fill" this window with your artwork, then I suspect you are using non-square artwork images. Such images having a narrower width than heigh, tend to "push" their associated movie titles out of the allocated display area in the main entry window of the Video app. Check the aspect ratio of your source images and if rectangular, try something like a 500x500 or some other 1:1 aspect ratio to retain your titles.2.66GHz 17" MBP 2.0GHz 3GB G5/533MHz 384MB G4 DeskTop/400MHz 384MB G4 Ti PB, Mac OS X (10.6.3), 60GB 5G iPod, 4GB iPhone, Nikon D-70, Nikon CoolPix 990, Sony HDR-HC3

I get titles for movies. Why not tv shows ?

Currently Being ModeratedApr 7, 2011 7:28 PM (in response to Dan White)The Videos app on the iPad does not show any text underneath the image of a TV Show (unlike Movies). This is not a bug - it is a feature.
The workaround is as follows:
First, download a picture of the title page for the TV show. Wikipedia usually has this.
Second, in iTunes right-click on the episode (you can multiple select) and choose Get Info. Click on the Artwork tab then click the Add button and navigate to the picture file.
Third, (re-)sync with the iPad.Windows XP Pro
Currently Being ModeratedApr 7, 2011 8:34 PM (in response to Dan White)This is one of those Apple oddities. I don't understand their logic for leaving titles off of TV shows.
I thought it was a bug when I noticed this with my first iPad but, it seems to be done intentionally. I have submitted feedback through official channels and look for it to be addressed with each software update but...
My workaround is derived from using EyeTV software/hardware to export TV shows that are recorded on my Mac mini. EyeTV creates a custom, letterbox-style graphic that includes the title for TV shows. However, programming acquired from other sources is still left without titles on the main screen of the iPad's built-in video app.Mac mini (Mid 2010), Mac OS X (10.6.7), iPad 2 (Wi-Fi + 3G)
