...and they're playing the whole program, not buffer-looping at 14 or 28 mins. Nowhereman, can you tell us what changed?

I wasn't aware the stuff was playing all the way through now. That's good news, but I'm not entirely sure why that would be.

Basically, the box doesn't always properly resolve redirected URLs. This is something I came across a while back when I was first trying to get CNET content to work. I'm now applying the same work around to the MSNBC content.

Religion Channel

I thought the idea for this channel was interesting but when scrolling though the channels I noticed I had to go by a bunch of LDS channels.
So what I thought was it would be nice to have the religions in sub-channels so if I am LDS I can go to the LDS channel, Catholics can go to the christian channels , Pagans to the Pagan channels, and so on.
You could have a Misc sub-channel for those feeds that don't quite fit into a major religious category.

To keep folks happy you would probably have to host a personal feeds channel to make a 'Religious' channel viable on a public machine.

Re: Pod TV

I like this idea.
This would be an awesome channel for the contest.

Re: Pod TV

Also, TBS.com has RSS feeds -- is it possible to get a channel for this?

If you mean these RSS feeds (http://www.tbs.com/rss/), they are not podcasts and don't contain any playable media. Well, one of them is a podcast, but it only contains 2 audio files from 2005. As discussed earlier in the thread, not all RSS feeds are podcasts.

Re: Pod TV

That makes sense. Sorry, I'm a bit new to this.

Is BYUtv the same way?

Re: Pod TV

Just a quick question. I had looked at the channel a few months ago, but not recently. I just added it back after getting a new Roku. When was this Netflix like interface added. And is the code proprietary or available?
