So after downloading iTunes 8, I downloaded 3 free tv episodes. Not only did it insist on downloading the HD version, but also the SD version as well. Now I just want to stop downloading these shows all together, but everytime I start iTunes it has me log in and it starts downloading the tv shows. How can I make it stop this?!

just press pause and select them in the downloads list and press backspace or delete. Otherwise they will just resume when you next open itunes.

That doesn't work... when it automatically checks for new downloads (everytime I start it) it still brings them all back. And I don't want to have to pause them everytime I want to download new podcasts or anything by just stopping automatic downloads at startup.

EDIT: Okay. It won't start downloading when I download new podcasts. I turned off automatic checking for downloads, but I would still like those episodes to not be associated with my account anymore.... is that possible?
QUOTE Thanks
