    Problem PC Per Podcast RSS

    Logging a proper request to get this fixed. For some reason, I'm not getting any new episodes after episode 87. I'm using Juice on Windows and RSS Player on the iPhone.

    The iTunes feed works fine though, but I'm avoiding iTunes now because it's keeps gettng stuck on "Syncing iPhone", super slow, and unreliable.

    Please fix, as I love your podcast, but I hate iTunes!

    Re: PC Per Podcast RSS

    I spent some time looking into this today but can't see any differences between our RSS feeds with episodes #87 and #88. Are you using podcasts-mp3.rss or podcasts.rss?

    I'm using the one with mp3 at the end.

    edit: I tried both and both feeds say 87 is the newest episode.

    Re: PC Per Podcast RSS

    This is really odd. I am seeing downloads of our podcasts as recently as yesterday with the Juice... Did you try deleting the feed and reimporting?

    When I loaded up the latest version of Juice it crashes pretty much non stop on me...on both my notebook and my desktop. Getting errors like this one: http://sourceforge.net/tracker/index...06&atid=681694

    Might this software have some bugs in it? It does work with iTunes, Zune and others so I am not sure what to do.

    Just reinstalled Juice and you're right, it seems to work.

    I put in a help request on the RSS Player aurthor's site here. Thanks for lookin into it, Ryan. Keep up the great work!

    Looks like I'm not the only one. Not sure what causing this. Maybe a foriegn character in the feed?

    Re: PC Per Podcast RSS

    Hmm, interesting. But a reinstall fixed it?

    If a single rogue character in the feed is killing it...I fear we might never find it.

    Looks like the author of RSS Player responded. I love that in this Web 2.0, the internet celebs and program authors are very accessible.

    He just responded.

    The problem is being caused by the pub date not conforming to the rfc-822 standard. Anything on or before Wed, 23 Dec 2009 is good. Anything after that will not work.

    Example of bad date is Thur, 25 Feb 2010 01:00:00 EST

    Please see "Wrong format" at http://www.apple.com/itunes/podcasts...commonmistakes.

    Re: PC Per Podcast RSS

    Hi Ryan,

    Have you looked into the RSS feed for the podcast yet? For the time being, your podcast is the only one I'm using iTunes to sync with, so no hurries. Was hoping it was a quick fix.

    Thanks.

    Edit: I think I see the problem. The day "Thur" is not valid. It should be "Thu". Using a RSS validation site, it shows you have 24 occurrences of this error. It just so happens that Episode 87 is the first episode in your feed that started on a "Thur" and not a "Thu".

    http://beta.feedvalidator.org/check....2Fpodcasts.rss

    It also detected a few other problems, but I don't think they are causing a problem. Or at least not yet.
