This question is regarding special episodes which are labeled as s00eXX within a TV series.

 

I no longer see the "Specials" season within TV series. I assume I changed a setting by accident. How do I change that view to get it back?

 

While viewing TV Series on Apple TV, I used to see a season labeled "Specials", that would appear before season 1 in the list of seasons. This provided a view with all the special episodes organized together.

 

Now, I can view the special episodes only from within the season they appeared. I used to have both options.

I initially checked library settings -> display, but did not find a setting to affect that change. Screen shot attached.

 

I also check in library settings -> advanced -> TV -> Season 0 display name = "Specials"

I think if you elect to show them within the seasons, then they no longer also show up in a specials folder.  Is that correct, Luke...?

I tried unchecking that option and it did not fix the issue. It only made the special episodes disappear completely.

 

In the past, I've always had that option checked/enabled and I was able to see the special episodes in both places.

It should be in both. I just tested and it seems to work fine. I think he might want to double check his metadata for the particular seasons and episodes in question.

Specifically, be sure that the season number for those specials is 0 I think...

I have the season set to 0 in the metadata and on the filename - screen shot attached.

 

I noticed this issue after I had to install Emby Official 3.0.5985.0 over Dev 3.1.6034.22791, following this thread: http://emby.media/community/index.php?/topic/36724-emby-set-to-update-to-beta-builds-updated-to-latest-developer/, could that have anything to do with it?

You also need to look at the special episode number values that are a little bit below that.

Here is a screenshot of that metadata section.

 

Note: I have not modified any metadata - it has been pulled from TheTVDB.

That did make the difference and the issue has been solved by moving the episode to a new folder named 'Season 0'.

 

Now I am able to see the episode from within the respective season and separately from within the Specials.

 

Nice catch @@Vidman!
