Displaying release dates in iTunes that are before 1/1/1970
- date: March 4, 2008
I have come across something interesting and not sure if this is a known problem or not. I have been importing some of my TV shows into iTunes and using Tagger to edit the meta data.
The TV shows Iím importing are Looney Tunes (Bugs bunny, Road Runner etc) and Star Trek (the original series) all of which where aired between the 1930ís to the late 1960ís. So Iím using Tagger to enter the release date using the format 1966-09-08T12:00:00Z to get it the dates to show up correctly in iTunes. But when I add my shows to iTunes the release date isnít visible. At first I thought it was an input error on my behalf but when I edited the release date I found that iTunes will not display dates before 1/1/1970.
Is this a known problem by Apple and the general community?
Is this another limitation of iTunes?
Is there another scheme or a work around I can use to get the dates to show up?
Is there another windows compatible program that I can try?
