Default re: playlists and podcasts

Hello,
I have been using rockbox for about a month. great stuff.
I listen to podcasts very often with over 15 different subscriptions, and dose off while listening to them. Every time I play a podcast in the podcast directory, the player plays all of the podcasts for that subscription. ie. if i downloaded 60 minutes and have 3 episodes downloaded, it will play all of them.

I would like to know if it is possible to single play a podcast when i listen to it, and stop after it plays a single podcast?

Is there a way to see if you have played a particular podcast in the past? (itunes had a blue circle to indicate unplayed podcasts)

No, a pause-after-current-track function does not exist yet. It has been proposed before, but no one has implemented it yet. Have a look at the corresponding discussion in the Rockbox forums.

For your particular use case, I can see two workarounds: either set up a sleep timer (it's under System -> Time & Date), or create or edit the playlist such that the current podcast is the last or the only entry.

Yes, there is, but it currently (Rockbox 3.8.1) requires enabling both Automatic Resume and Gather Runtime Data, as well as editing /.rockbox/tagnavi_custom.config. Here's an example custom menu with a menu entry for browsing unplayed, resumable, and completed podcasts. The menu will appear under Database -> Custom:

Code:
%format "fmt_podcast" "%s - %s (%s)" title artist filename

%menu_start "custom" "Podcasts"
"All podcasts"       -> album ? filename ^ "/PODCASTS" -> title = "fmt_podcast"
"Resumable Podcasts" -> album ? filename ^ "/PODCASTS" & lastoffset > "0" -> title = "fmt_podcast"
"Unplayed Podcasts"  -> album ? filename ^ "/PODCASTS" & playcount == "0" -> title = "fmt_podcast"
"Completed Podcasts" -> album ? filename ^ "/PODCASTS" & playcount > "0" & lastoffset == "0" -> title = "fmt_podcast"
