mp3 feed horked?

by rpardee / August 6, 2011 3:56 AM PDT

Hey All,

Since ep 1523 show my zune software gives this error on the BOL feed:

Can't retrieve episodes in this series. The RSS feed appears to be valid but no content was found.

Same deal on my android phone, via Google Listen--looks like the feed ends w/ep 1523.

Anybody else having this problem? Is there an official channel to report such problems?

I'm having the same problem. It seems the rss changed, but nothing seems to work for my podcast clients. I hope they fix this soon since the podcast is sort of their product and all.

I can't get audio with BeyondPod on Android. I get each show's text description but no talkee. I am subscribed to MP3 version, used to work (last week).

MP3 RSS also missing

My feed broken as well, using Doggcatcher on a Nexus One.

During my fruitless tinkering I went to to get the RSS link to enter manually, in case it was just the link in the Doggcatcher recommended feeds section, and I noticed there was a link for the best of buzz out loud, but not the regular full BOL feed.

Please fix the feed soon, I'll start getting twichy if I don't get a regukar fix of irreverent tech jornalism Happy

I thought it was my Zune software - nice to hear at least I have company. Haven't been able to download an episode since 1523. I;m kind of surprised there is not more mention of it on the board - maybe everyone (like me) was on vacation last week. Please, Lords of Buzztown, let us know how to fix this!

<span id="INSERTION_MARKER"> I'm having the same problem with iTunes, so I just thought I would add that in to the equation.

Have they really not addressed this yet?
by StunnedMonkey / August 8, 2011 5:41 AM PDT

I mean, are they seemingly aware that the feed is broken? Has anyone listened live or watched the video version? Have they acknowledged this?

CBS News spamming my BoL audio podcast Feed
by Wolven Spectre / August 26, 2011 12:05 PM PDT
In reply to: mp3 feed horked?

I follow the RSS feed for the show using Google Reader
For the past few days it has been dumping literally hundereds of links to CBS news properties and one to a 404 episode (uuuugh), No Buzz out Loud Episodes in there at all.
The video download RSS is still working but does not have any of the links to the stories or a link back to the blog for the episode.
(by the way BoL could you make your RSS format compatible with Google's format because your flash players don't show up in the feed and I would like to be able to stream it there)
Please guys... fix this and give us a status update on the show.

Well it works now after resubscription.
by Wolven Spectre / August 29, 2011 10:48 AM PDT

Was the RSS Feed address changed or something... after the number of wrong posts reached over a thousand I tried resubscribing for the third or fourth time. This time it finally worked. I had to take the RSS Feed from the blog though, because the one I was using previously for quite some time wasn't working.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
