Pipe in. I'm curious as well. Any input will be invaluable to me trying to make sure that the feed is better in the future.
We won't be switching back to the hand-coded method... but I can take what I learn from here and hopefully have a tool designed or functionality that will take care of these issues.
Ever since the feed was changed, my N95 no longer automatically downloads the podcast. For whatever reason, the new show always appears at the bottom of the list of shows. I'm guessing that is the reason it doesn't auto-download, but I'm not sure. The size and duration is also not shown, but that's a minor annoyance. Anyone else experiencing issues?
