I have an iPhone and an iPod. I'm subscribed to one podcast. My iPod is set up to download the 10 most recent unplayed, and the iPhone is set to download the 10 least recent unplayed.
One night, I was listening to an episode of the podcast on my iPhone and I downloaded two more recent podcasts. I was at home, so it downloaded them through my wireless connection, not through iTunes.
However, I can't get the iPhone to get rid of those podcasts. When I would sync the podcast, my iPhone would list 12 episodes, not just 10. And the two downloaded podcasts can't be played back (whenever I try, it immediately kicks me back to the podcast selection screen, as if the episode is over).
I have tried unsyncing the podcast (it removes the 10, but not the broken two). I've tried setting up my iPhone for manual control, and when I try to overwrite the broken podcasts, they will work. However, when I then try to delete them, they stay in the list and go back to being broken.
Can someone offer some help?
