I have satellite internet and as such have daily download limits. However, there is a 2 hour block in the middle of the night that I can use without limitation. Is there a way I can schedule iTune downloads so they automatically download during this time so I don't have to get up at 2 am?:confused:

Thanks Patrick but this wasn't what I was looking for. It seems that with satellite internet there is something called the fair access policy (http://go.gethughesnet.com/fapolicy.cfm?hf=0) that limits rates and amounts. It has a loophole for between 3 and 5 am eastern. The updates to podcasts only applies to podcasts and not to movies (but probably would apply to academic updates to podcasts) and it is set for 2:42 pm (not am).

If anyone else has any ideas, please let me know. I would be willing to look outside iTunes if there is another option.

BTW, Patrick, I looked at your FLCKR page and the photo of the bird is killer.
