Lately itunes has stopped updating my favorite podcast automaticly because it says I haven't listened to the podcast lately. The problem is that I don't listen via itunes, as I listen to every one on my ipod. Nearly every day one of my subscribed podcasts has an icon with an exclamation point beside it, and the show has not been updated. Major problems with Dawn & Drew, and Keith and the Girl in particular.
I use iTunes for listening to podcasts. I have found a problem with Radio Leo, always downloading the latest show, when I already have it. And then at the end of the download I get the ! exclamation point.
Would it be of benefit to .... oh wait a minute.
Breaking news iTunes 5.0.1 released....
May I humbly suggest backing up your iTunes Library first......
iTunes also has a bug recently discovered that if the subscription address changes in the RSS that it doesn't update things and you have to unsubscribe/resubscribe to continue getting any podcasts where the address may have changed. Not sure if this is related but though it was worth a mention.
