Podcasts not auto deleting from iTunes?

I have my iTunes set up to check for new podcasts every hour (b/c ESPN updates seem so random), to download the most recent episcode, and to keep all unplayed episodes.

Well, when I plug in my iPod to update it iTunes still keeps unplayed episodes in the playlist. This is annoying b/c I don't like them hanging around and cluttering up my library.

Am I doing something wrong or is this a bug or what? Thanks for any info.

It sounds like it's doing what it's supposed to.

Did you mean it keeps played podcasts?

Yeah, it keeps podcasts that have been played from my ipod. When I sync up they are labeled as unplayed but stay in my library. I don't want to get rid of unplayed ones b/c I don't get to listen to them everyday.

Maybe I just can't get it to do what I'd like it to do b/c it won't do that...thanks anyway everyone.

I had problems with this too. Make sure you select the option to to auto delete. You can check by right clicking on the podcast. Also try and refresh the podcast and see if that works.

If after syncing with the iPod, the play count doesn't go up, something is wrong with your iPod. I'd reset the ipod software and reload your audio content.
