My Movies supports the connection between a disc title and a TV series. This allows you to see a disc title as a TV series, and get all the detailed information about the TV series and extended functionality for the disc title.
If a newly added or updated disc title in your collection is registered on our servers with a connection to a TV series, and the episodes on the disc title has been set, you will be able to see the detailed series and episode information for the disc title in both My Movies for Windows Media Center and My Movies Collection Management. If only the media type for the disc title has been set to TV series but no futher connection has been made, you will still be able to see the disc title under the TV Series section in My Movies for Windows Media Center.


If the relevant connection between a disc title and TV series + episodes has not been set, you can easily set it yourself and this guide will show you how this is done.The guide will run through the proces registering the disc title, setting the media type, connecting to the TV series, and finally setting the episodes on the disc.
We will be using the Crime Scene Investigation (CSI) - season 1 episode 1-12 disc set as an example throughout the guide.
