Exclude favorites from downloaded episode quota.
If I retain 5 episodes per podcast, but then mark an episode as favorite, I'll only retain 4 new episodes at a time. If I reach 5 favorites, I'll never automatically download any new episodes. Is there a way to make it so favorites don't count against your podcast maximum?
This is now available in the app
Can you please confirm that you’re using the Archive mode? If so, next version of the app will ignore favorites files in the quota if ‘Keep favorites episodes’ is enabled

Thanks for adding this feature! From which version can we expect this working? I'm on version 2020.12d (20260) now and using the 'archive mode' and 'keep fav episodes' is checked, but the quota counts still include fav episodes.

I too would like this ability. I'm new to a podcast trying to catch up in archive mode with auto cleanup keep at most of one so it intermixes with other podcasts (and not dominate the playlist). When I favorite an episode to keep it, I can no longer download. If I adjust the keep at most upward, i.e. 3, to start downloading again, it begins to dominate the playlist because now it downloads two episodes and when one is listened to the next downloads and I begin to cycle only through that podcast. Another option may be to allow a custom keep at most so I can keep at most just 1 more than the number I have favorited. Once caught up I will turn off archive and custom auto cleanup.
I second this. I had favorited a large number in certain podcasts and then had to do a lot of messing around to figure out that is why no more were being auto downloaded. I had to let them go.
