Download Podcasts automatically

So on my Tivo, I am able to subscribe to podcasts (that Tivo offers through TivoCast) and it will download them and put them in my Now Playing list automatically.

I'd like to do something similar with PMS. Basically run a lightweight program that keeps track of podcasts I want to watch and downloads them whenever a new one is released.

It sounds like "Juice" is a good tool for this, is anyone using this - or does anyone use something else?

I guess the other question is whether this is the right approach - is downloading podcasts so that they can be streamed from my computer to the PS3 a more foolproof solution than trying to use inbuilt podcast stuff that streams the podcast directly from the web?

So I used XBMC recently on my old original XBox. On that system you can use plugins for Revision 3 content that gives you the show description and lets you watch it from the web - this worked great for what I want.

Can you access revision 3 show episodes similar to this through PS3MS?

Looks like Web.conf is what I was looking for.
