Update podcasts, sync to iPod and eject iPod via script
Authored by: yanokwa on Aug 13, '06 08:57:26AM

The delays work by checking if the size of the playlist (either Podcasts the iPod itself) is changing. In the case of the iPod, it's very reliable because it's when you update it's either changing in size or not. The delay here is just how often the script should check the iPod's size.

With the podcasts, iTunes checks each podcast to see if there is an update. If there is, it starts downloading the update. The problem arises when there are no podcast updates, you what to give the script enough time to check all podcasts if there are no updates, so this delay has to about 1 second per podcast, with a 2-3 second buffer for network delays.
