Re: Sync recommendations? (more Windows-related than Rockbox)

I use iPodder ( and subscribe
to everything from there. Then I have it download everything to
E:\podcasts, where E: is the drive letter that my JBR gets. So I
don't really need to sync it up; it's the only place where I put

Here's a neat hack that I'll share. iPodder lets you run a command
after each download (File, Preferences, Advanced) This is what I run:
start /min wscript "e:\zzz files\voicebox\voiceBox-silent.wsf" e:\podcasts

I removed this line from the bottom of voicebox.wsf file to create my
"silent" version, and it's pretty quiet that way: msgbox "Clip
generation completed." So as soon as the podcast is downloaded, it's
automatically voiced for me. Handy for use in the car!

Hope that helps,
