Episode 550 - XML problem...

Hey everyone. Most of you probably haven't run into the issue, but if you are trying to download or stream the episode from the CNET site, it's giving an error message, or playing back a blank file.

There was a strange problem with the XML feed that is now corrected. The site should refresh with the fixed XML code within the next half hour. At that time, all should be ok!

iTunes subscribers should find no issue with the episode, as the tags for iTunes is different than for the website.

Thanks everyone! Happy

All is in working order... a mere minute after hitting send on my forum post.

Show of hands: who else had a problem streaming from the site and just did the URL hack?

But that's not to say that I haven't had problems there too with the occasional episode that gets cut short or just won't DL and play.
