    I use Autosync to hotsync my treo prior to leaving for my commute in the morning. This is helpful Especially now that I keep my Avantgo cache on the SD card and a hotsync can take 10-15 minutes. Anyway, there are some podcasts that I would like to listen to on the way to work. Does ipodder or any of those podcast tools work with palm hotsync to grab any new podcasts and put them straight on the sd card?

    Maybe i'm asking too much, but this would be really sweet... Thanks

    Please don't flame!!!

    I have been searching ALL OVER for an AUTOSYNC program that will sync the treo (not just the mail) automatically! I assume that is what you have! Where can it be found?!

    Why would you get flamed for asking about the AutoSync software he mentioned??? There are a few that do the job, but the one I use is AutoSync by Blue Nomad. It is included in the excellent software package BackupBuddy for Windows. Not sure if it is available seperately.

    It works flawlessly, set it and forget it. I consider it essential.

    Yeah, that's exactly what i've been using, not sure if it's sold separately though.

    So, back to the original question.

    Is there a sync/autosynch program for podcasts? I wanna get the "Revenge of the Screen Savers" feed on Sunday.

    I will leave Palm/webOS only after kicking, screaming and wrecking anything on my way out.

    Back on topic, I just put my podcasts (also known as MP3's, why have we decided that recordings of radio shows in MP3 format require a catchy moniker, named after an overpriced piece of consumer electronics that is high on design and low on value???) on my Treo manually.

    It would be great to have a piece of software that did it all automatically. As I understand it, there is podcast aggregator software that does it for you automatically if you have an ipod. Shouldn't be too much of a stretch to have the same for my Treo...

    The podcasts I get are OGGs, but the point of the pocast moniker is to signify a "show" as opposed to just some random audio file.

    Well, I guess there isn't any software for this, but I'm posting again in hopes someone may know.

    And, if anyone cares, ROTSS is now TWIT/TWIG (This Week In Tech/Geek). Yoshi hasn't shown up yet for one.

    Has anyone ever found hotsync software that will automatically update my podcasts to my sd card during a hotsync? I am also looking for this.

    Thanks

    I use QuickNews to automatically sync the TWiT podcast (mp3) onto my SD Card.

    mszatny,

    I guess I could read the QuickNews manual, but could you please provide a few more details as to how you do this?

    Does it sync "over the air" (ie, via Treo data connection), which would seem to be extremely slow, or are you able to do this via Hotsync (USB connection)?

    TIA for the extra details.

    -Just add a new RSS feed to QuickNews: http://leo.am/podcasts/twit
    - Enable this Feed to Update at Hotsync (it is too big to update over the air)
    - Under Options-Preferences - Storage, you can make sure the feeds are saved to SD
    - Under Options-Preferences - Audio, you can designate where to save the audio files. Although no matter where I designate, the MP3 is ALWAYS saved to /Audio

    Now when you HOTSYNC, QuickNews will check to see if there is a new TWiT episode to download.

    I hope this helps

    Are there any free readers out there that do this?

    a hotsync takes 10-15 minutes? Yikes!

    I think I just don't understand how these things work. Maybe someone could explain. The RSS reader (like quicknews) seems to be text based, but I am interested in listening to podcast audio files. My only experience with podcasts is through itunes which is increadibly easy to use. Everytime I open itunes it updates my podcasts and syncs them with my ipod.

    My goal is to push the hotsync button and have something check the internet (using my desktop internet - not the wireless Treo internet) for updates to any podcast subscriptions I have and automatically download those to my SD card. How do I accomplish this?

    QuickNews can ALSO be used for downloading MP3 podcasts....these CAN be automated in the Desktop Hotsync process....but like was mentioned, may take a bit long to complete.

    I'm not aware of any free Palm RSS readers that accomplish this.

    The RSS feeds include links to mp3 files for podcasts. Quicknews recognizes these just like it recognizes links to images which can be downloaded when the feed is retrieved (images only retrieved over the air and not via hotsync however). In the Conduit setup for quicknews you can choose to automatically download those podcasts. Check it out, it's pretty cool

    Hi All, I've been listening to Podcast on my Treo 650 for a while now very successfully. I followed the instructions below and viola, I can have any Podcast downloaded to my PC overnight and in the morning a few minute and all the shows are on my Treo.

    Here's the Link. Let me know if that was helpful.

    If you have an SD card reader, why not leave the SD card in there overnight?

    You can then use IPodder (or whatever) to download the podcasts automatically, write a simple batch file that copies *.mp3 or *.ogg to the SD card, and schedule it to run 10 minutes before you get up every day.

    Works well for me.

    Obviously, you have to leave your computer on all night, but...
