I got the iPod Touch for Xmas and set it up. Music, music videos, movies, apps all synced up. The only thing that won't sync are my television shows - all bought through iTunes.

Any advice on how to help?

    did you select the tv shows tab on your touch in itunes?

    I usually drag and drop, but try this.

    1. Under devices in itunes, single click on the ipod name and the summary tab information will be displayed.
    2. Click on TV Shows and make sure athat the "Sync" check box is checked.
    3. If you want to sync "all unwathed" select it from the "episodes of" box or select the "All Tv Shows" radio button.
    4. Click Sync

    FYI: If you snyc all shows if you remove any from your itunes library, they will be removed from your ipod when you sync it the next time.

    yes, i chose the "sync the 10 most recent unwatched episodes of:" and then chose my shows. i click on sync, the computer/ipod tell me that it's syncing and ten second later, it is finished with no shows on the ipod!

    On the "Summary" Tab is sync only checked songs and videos checked? Do those videos have a check mark next to them?

    i tried it both ways. first i tried to sync everything and then i tried to sync just checked things and made sure to check what i wanted and nothing

    Is manaully manage my music and videos checked or unchecked? Checked means that you will use a drop and drag method, unchecked means let iTunes manage.

    unchecked. everything else synced perfectly. it's just the tv shows that didn't.

    I Know this a a very simple thing and I do not mean of offend, but do all of the shows that you are trying to sync have a little blue dot next to them? The blue dot designates that they are new/unwatched.

    okay, i had this same problem. the way to fix it is simple enough. go on to your ipod under devices on itunes.the screen you should see is the one with a picture of an ipod and all of your sync options on. move along the tabs at the top of that screen to tv shows. select the check box sync and make sure you also select all tv shows including unwatched. befpoore you do anything else! make sure to click apply in the bottom right hand corner. as soon as you do this your ipod will sync the tv shows. i hope this has helped, it took me a while to figure it out myself.

    This does not work for me. When I go to sync the TV Shows, it erases all of my music. When I go to sync the music, it erases all my TV Shows. It seems like Apple is not allowing to have both TV Shows and Music on the Ipod at the same time. If I try to manually put the items in my Ipod, it doesn't do anything. I plan on calling Apple later today to figure out what is wrong.
