Here's the setup: When I'm in iTunes, and my iPhone is connected to my computer, I go to player and to the Podcasts section under "Settings". There are three columns on the screen. The one on the left has "Settings" and "On My Device," the middle column is a list of subscribed Podcast sources (Fresh Air, the Infinite Monkey Cage, etc.) and the one on the right has my downloaded Episodes. To select which podcasts I want to sync, I check the "Sync" heading and click on a podcast. The episodes I've downloaded then appear in the righthand column. Next to each episode is a checkbox that determines whether or not an episode will sync to my player. The problem is this: Once a box is checked, it CANNOT be unchecked. It doesn't matter whether or not I've played an episodes, it's still set to sync to my iPhone. This is especially troublesome if I need more space, which is the case as I'm writing this. I have managed - with difficulty - to actually talk to Apple tech support about this. After several sessions, they finally told me that somebody said this is a "known issue" and MAY be fixed on the next upgrade. They offered no help except to suggest uninstalling iTunes and reinstalling it. I've done this three times, but nothing changes. I did it again about an hour ago. Is there a fix or even a workaround for this problem? At this point I'd be happy if I could just uncheck the podcast episodes I've already heard, so I can free up some space. Thanks in advance for any advice or suggestions.
