CNET Podcasts Are Not Updating

Hi all,

I've been noticing for the past two days whenever I refresh the podcasts section in iTunes it does not update them. I see there are new webisodes of my favorite podcasts on CNETTV but they aren't being downloaded to my PC.

I've tried deleting the subscription and resubscribing to them but it only downloads episodes from 2 days ago (12/1/2009).

Any idea as to why this is happening? Thanks for any help guys! Happy

In iTunes

In iTunes, in the podcast section, is there a gray circle with a white exclamation point by the name of the podcast? Not the individual episodes, the name of the show. If so, click on that, it'll say something about how you have X number of unwatched/listened to podcasts so in the effort of trying to be "helpful" it's stopped downloading new ones.

It's a really annoying feature I have yet to figure out how to disable, so I'd appreciate anyone who can shed some light on that. But if you see this on your system, you just need to keep doing this every couple of days.

That exclamation mark in a circle doesn't show up at all, I've watched all the podcasts that were downloaded two days ago and oddly enough only one of them updated yesterday and only one.
