Only thing I would also add as Default is "On update download" = No episodes that way podcast will be subscribed but no bandwidth and not needed downloads would occur.

May be, but I am afraid that it could have a negative effect for novice users that will end up with manual downloading of each episode. My understanding is that if anyone subscribe a podcast, then he wants also its episodes to be auto-downloaded.

What do you think, Rusty?

I'd go with leaving auto-downloading enabled as well. I'd expect that most will expect to have episodes downloaded when subscribing to a feed. It's likely very few users would want to subscribe without downloading episodes.

I'd leave it enabled as well. I think that the most glaring problem revealed by this user is the fact that users can't see the default Podcast rules--and so I'd suggest that we modify the dialog to show them (in cases where they're enabled).

I've documented this at 0011409 , but not as an urgent feature.
