    New itunes format?

    Has anyone else noticed the show appearing in a different itunes format beginning this month? Previously, I was able to stream the show out of itunes with the ability to pause and pick up from where I left off. Now, the streaming feature is extremely limited. If I get cut off in the middle of an episode, I can only restart from the beginning all over again

    I thought it might be an itunes issue, but my other podcasts are still working the old way.

    Any help/thoughts??

    Haven't encountered that. Why not just download it to your iPod and then listen at your leisure from whatever point you need to?

    WHen it comes to downloading it, that takes up a lot of space. And when you have an iphone, you dont have the space for a lot of episodes. So, it was easier to go into itunes and stream it off of there. That way you did not tie up your phone's disk space.

    I really wish they would go back to the other way.

    I download a couple of episodes at a time and delete them after I listen to them. 32gb on my iPod is plenty of room for movies, songs and podcasts. If there are any I care to save for some reason, I dump them onto an external drive. Never a storage issue on my iPod.

    I've been having the same problem!
    I've got an 8 gig iPhone so I really counted on streaming episodes throughout the day. Now I guess I'll have to sync my phone everyday to remove the episodes I've listened to and add new ones. :-/

    I only keep the most recent episode on my iPod and haven't noticed any problems.

    Makes sense. Not sure why you'd want podcasts you already heard taking up space on your iPod.

    Discovered what’s happening with iTunes on the iPhone.

    On your PC or MAC iTunes: If you enable Syncing podcasts to your iPhone, you can only play audio stream podcasts (no pause or scrubbing),
    When I disabled the Syncing of Podcasts, plugged my iPhone into my PC and re-synced, its back to normal.

    I guess Apple assumes that you normally download the podcast ahead of time if you chose the sync option.

    All this talk of scrubbing and syncs makes me remember that I need to do the dishes.
