Transfer TiVo MetaData to iTunes

You need a proper tool to edit metadata on your mp4 files that were created. is available, and you can even get it from aptitude on some systems.

sudo apt-get install atomicparsley

AtomicParsley "TelevisionShow.mp4" --stick "TV Show"  --description "Michael Pardue escaped from prison three times after being convicted for two murders, but his convictions for murder and escape were later overturned. Copyright Tribune Media Services, Inc." --TVNetwork "AETVHD" --TVShowName "American Justice" --TVEpisode "Shotgun Justice"--overWrite

Maybe mp4v2 works better?
The make portion took a long time on my system, and there are some extra weird dependancies.

sudo apt-get install build-essential
tar -xf mp4v2-1.9.1.tar.bz2
cd mp4v2-1.9.1
sudo make install
