  1. I recently (mid November) received a new MacBook Pro and almost immediately began having issues with kernel panics - as many as two or three an hour. An example of the panic is included below:

    panic(cpu 0 caller 0x001A3135): Unresolved kernel trap (CPU 0, Type 14=page fault), registers:

    A check of the Apple support forum indicated that wireless related kernel panics have been a problem for a couple of months. I took copies of the panic log to the Apple Store and the machine was sent for repair. I have since received a new machine but it does exactly the same thing.

     

    One thing I have figured out is that I was running a Belkin N1, pre-N router (latest firmware) and if I went back to my old linksys G router the problem disappears. I have been running problem free with the Linksys router for several days. Has anyone else heard of this issue? Any advice would be appreciated


  2. Exactly - I move some off to external storage - Photoshop TV for example. Having the folders made that very easy. It also seemed an odd thing to change but you are right that the functionality betweeen iTunes and my iPod is no different.

     

    I did note that the option to keep "the xx recent uplayed" podcast option does not seem to work with video podcasts either - they seem to be treated differently from audio ones. Again not a huge deal just an inconsistency.

     

     

    This issue seems to be resolved in 7.0.2


  3. Ah, you mean where the actual files are stored in the iTunes Music folder. I guess I'm generally indifferent to that, since the files are transient (download/watch/delete). I just let iTunes organize it however it likes.

     

    Are you trying to force them to go to a separate disk drive for space reasons ?

  4. it is true that within the podcast view (thanks for the screenshot) nothing has changed.

     

    If you highlight one of the video podcasts and choose the "Show In Finder" option however you will notice that rather than being in a folder called iTunes Music/Podcasts/command N for instance, all video podcasts downloaded since the installation of iTunes 7 (Sep12 for me) are now being stored in the iTunes Music/Podcasts folder.

     

    This is true for video podcasts that I was already subscribed to, for which folders already existed, as well as new subscriptions.

     

    Not sure I understand exactly what you mean. Mine are still under the Podcasts library... my dl.tv is under Podcasts/dl.tv, Command-N is under Podcasts/Command-N, Macbreak is under Podcasts/Macbreak and the ABC World news is under Podcasts/ABC World News.

    (They are also in my "Video Podcasts" Smart Playlist - but I created that for myself.)

     

    Or do you just mean the old "Videos" library is gone (replaced by separate "Movies" and "TV Shows" libraries, and a "Music Videos" smart playlist ?


  5. Has anyone else noticed that video podcasts are no lobger organized into folders that way other podcasts are since iTunes 7 - they are simply put into the root of the Podcasts folder within the iTunes Music Library. I have noted that this occurs on both Windows and Mac vesion of iTunes7. i had hoped that 7.0.1 would fix this but it does not appear to. Anyone have any ideas about this?

     

    There is an unanswered Q. on the Apple support forum as well I have attached the link below
