Podcast not updating?
This is for both Leopard and Tiger. I think there is a bug in the way iTunes handles podcast updating, but there thankfully is an easy solution. It just happens after a while that new episodes of specific podcasts are not automatically downloaded anymore. Worst, you know there is a new episode, you click on "Refresh" in iTunes and it just doesn't refresh. That can happen when iTunes checks to see if there is a new episode, but the connection times out. A grey exclamation point then appears at the left of the podcast where you normally get a blue dot with a new episode. I think that is fine, but the bug is that when you hit "Refresh", it doesn't even try again. What I previously did was to unsubscribe and subscribe again. There is an easier way however. You can just right-click (or ctrl-click) on the podcast and choose "Update Podcast".
