    So, I created a smart playlist simply with the genre as Podcast, and ordered it by date. It's come up with a few episodes of various things with I've obviously deleted from the library, but not from the hard drive. IE, I can only find them on this playlist, and nowhere else...

    One can't delete from the playlist, and deleting the file itself just results in an ! next to it's name. How do I rid my playlist of these?

    Thanks!

    Press ALT and then select DELETE from the menu. This works for Playlists and Smart Playlists.

    Erm.. nope. Pressing Alt doesn't help with anything here...

    If you select the file and alt-delete it, what happens? Doesn't a window like the following appear? :confused:

    It asks if you're sure you want to remove the selected podcast from the library.

    Ja, es tut mir leid! You're quite right, I misunderstood you first time around.

    Thanks for the help!
