Items never downloaded from feeds far down on the list

Suppose I have feeds A B C and D. Suppose all of them have 3 new items, A1, A2, A3, B1, B2...etc. Right now the auto-download will download all three new items of A (A1, A2 and A3) before it starts downloading items from B.

The problem is that since I have many feeds and many of those add new items often, the auto-download never downloads from some feeds that are far down on the list (F, G, H). There are always enough new items from feeds A through D to fill up my device's memory before it can download from feeds F through H. Doggcatcher therefore never is able to download items from feeds F through H.

It would be nice to be able to set it up so that it will download an item from each feed (if there is one) A1, B1, C1, etc., before downloading the next item of the same feed, A2 B3, C2 etc. That way I can be sure that doggcatcher will get around to downloading items from feed H.

Currently it's not possible

Currently it's not possible to do that (Re:Eric "Developer" http://www.doggcatcher.com/node/5788) I would suggest lowering the "Auto Download" setting (In the DC Menu>Settings>Global Feed Options) to maybe 2 or 3, DC will download new media files until the 2 or 3 number has been reached and will download more later once media files have been listened to and deleted
Maybe you can also move the podcast position on the "Feeds" screen so the feeds at a higher priority will be downloaded first. Long press on the particular feed>Press "Move up/Down" then press on the screen position you would like the feed/podcast.

If your device supports external SD cards, point DC to the card to store media files

Cool. Thanks. I know you guys already addressed this in the general discussion section. I just wanted to put it here so as to hopefully inspire developers.
