I have imported some movies (not purchased from iTunes) into iTunes, and added tags. The movies play perfectly in iTunes, and via home sharing on my iPad, iPhone, and Apple TV 2. The strange thing is that some of the tags (actors, director) don't display on the iPad when looking at the movie info in the Videos app. They do display on the Apple TV and in iTunes.


Any ideas why this would be so? I know that iTunes movie rentals do display such information on the iPad, so it doesn't seem like this is just not a supported feature.

Mac OS X (10.7.2), iPhone 4, Apple TV 2, iPad 2
