Can Beyond Scheduler be set to have all feeds update when activesync starts up?

Hi, I want to avoid having insane data bills by having beyondpod download when it detects that the phone is connected to a computer (so it can use my DSL connection not my EDGE connection). Perhaps I just wasn’t understanding correctly but it didn’t seem like an option with the Beyond Scheduler app. Is this possible through Beyond Scheduler or using some other application? Or even “auto-downloading” whenever it finds a wifi connection? Any suggestions would of course be appreciated!

The setting you are looking is actually in BeyondPod itself. In Tools > Settings > General Settings, there is a checkbox called "Allow use of GPRS/EDGE/3G". If you un-check, BeyondPod will not use your cellular connections - only WiFi or ActiveSync (whichever is available).
BeyondScheduler actually just starts BeyondPod at a a given time and BeyondPod downloads the data, this is why the setting is in  BeyondPod rather than BeyondScheduler.
