First off, Marketplace in the UK does not have Podcasts so that is ruled out.

I can get the podcasts onto my phone using Mac Connector but when I do this the 'Subscribe' link under the podcast on the phone doesn't work. By this I mean I open it, it lists Number of downloads to keep etc. I 'Confirm' and then I'm returned to the podcast but the 'Subscribe' button is still there. (Is this a bug with WP7?)

How can I get it to sync wirelessly?

Update: Although Mac Connector will sync podcasts from iTunes, it apparently does not transfer the URL meaning it isn't possible to subscribe on the phone using the default 'Music & Videos' app. As mentioned, syncing with Zune from a PC does do this so if you can sync once from Zune on a PC, you can then enable wireless syncing on the phone. This is what I have done but it still required a PC and Zune software.

2nd Update: After upgrading to Tango and having to perform a factory reset after signing up for an Outlook address I cannot seem to get the subscription settings back again - even after syncing with Zune. Now it seems there is no way to update podcasts without connecting to a PC ...

  • So I took it into work, installed Zune on my work PC, went to select the wireless sync option in Zune settings but it wouldn't allow me to do so until I had wireless network on my phone (my wireless is at home, no wireless at work). Fortunately though now when I chose 'Subscribe' on the phone it allows me to (presumably it saved the feed URL, why it can't do this with the Mac Connector is beyond me).

    OK, but it still doesn't really answer the question. If I hadn't been able to access a PC with Zune on, I still would not have been able to wirelessly sync.

  • My podcasts sync wirelessly, although they were originally set up within Zune (from UK too).
