    On the face of it the Calendar called Calendar is local to the iPod and is not on iCloud.

    It is also in iCal in SL. How would it make the leap and not go via iCloud?

    By being synced through iTunes. It can not be synced with iCloud unless you have followed the very specific and rather complicated steps for the hack, and you'd know if you'd done that. Other that that it will never sync through iCloud in Snow Leopard.

    The calendar events are missing from the iPad Touch. All calendars is all there is.

     

    The events are present in Address Book (SL) which has 5 calendars and 2 subscriptions. All listed below.

     

    My iPod Touch shows: 5 calendars, the 4 below + "Calendar".

     

    iCloud shows: 4 (Home, Work, 2 Workshops) appear in iCloud. But not "Calendar".

     

    Other shows: Birthdays.

    iTunes

    The only options I can see in iTunes in SL are under:

     

    Devices > Summary > Backups > Automatically/Manually

     

    Neither of which changes my Contacts/Calendars on the iPod Touch

    That is correct, SL has no iCloud functionality, and iTunes is not iCloud, all is normal as far as that goes (using SL) Only iCloud mail has support on SL (it's just a regular Imap account, same as Mobile Me) Contacts and Calendars are Dav accounts and require clients, SL has no clients for iCloud.

     

    But, if you connect your iPod to iTunes the option exists to sync data from your Mac to the iPod (contacts, calendars etc) if you check that option your calendars and contacts will sync with your iPod, but this is nothing to do with iCloud, and will mess up if you are also using iCloud as a data path.

     

    You did connect your iPod using a cabe to iTunes did you not?

  • PeterBreis0807 Level 7 Level 7 (33,560 points)

    Yes.

     

    But the only options for syncing are those I stated above, plus the incorrect "iCloud syncing" that I supplied the screen shot for.

     

    The question arises how is it syncing and yet not syncing?

     

    This is just one long ongoing mess IMHO and typical of Apple in recent years. Far from the myth of symplicity.

    You've obviously managed to get the iTunes syncing running, even if you're not aware of it; iTunes syncing and iCloud 'syncing' (which isn't actually syncing but reading the data from the server) don't mix and the latter isn't available to you on Snow Leopard anyway.

     

    I don't hold any brief for Apple, and I have my own reserverations about iCloud: but for most people it does 'just work' and you are in the position of complaining that it doesn't work on a setup that it wasn't designed to in the first place.

    Try using iCloud on a supported platform, Snow Leopard is not supported.

    Check out this free sync service:

     

    https://fruux.com/

     

    For many months it has provided me with robust contacts and calendar syncing between computers running OS X 10.6, 10.7 and 10.8, and devices running iOS 5 and iOS 6. Platform-specific setup instructions are provided, and are clear and intuitive.
