I'm stumped. I created a Smart playlist of Media Kind is "Podcast" + Plays equals "0". Then I synced it to my iPad. I selected the new playlist in the iPod app on the iPad and there's nothing there...the playlist is empty.


Smart playlists with only music content sync as expected. Smart playlists using "Media Kind is..." filters other than "Podcast" sync as expected.


The problem seems to be related to selecting "Media Kind is Podcast" filter. The "Media Kind is not Podcast" filter works as expected.)


As I final check I selected all of the podcasts and created a new, regular,  playlist with the the selection. The new playlist synced as expected.


Any suggestions?
