Issues loading from XML

Hello, New developer here not sure if this has been addressed before but I couldn't find anything on it. 

I downloaded the "Simple_Grid_and_Video" sample code that had a default sample feed on it. Obviously I need to change that feed to retrieve my content but everytime I change the feed from the default to anything else, all I get is a Loading... with the spinner. Even when I don't even change anything about the code and upload the default file right to my server, it still doesn't work. I haven't made any changes to the sample code just simply changing the url feed. Would appreciate any help. Thanks

For references I will place the debug console message below. 
Current Function:
058:  Function GetApiArray()
059:      url = CreateObject("roUrlTransfer")
060:      url.SetUrl("")
061:      rsp = url.GetToString()
063:      responseXML = ParseXML(rsp)
064:*     responseXML = responseXML.GetChildElements()
065:      responseArray = responseXML.GetChildElements()
067:      result = []
'Dot' Operator attempted with invalid BrightScript Component or interface reference. (runtime error &hec) in pkg:/source/main.brs(64)

your host does some funky javascript redirect junk and while that loads in a web browser, it ain't gonna fly with non-browser agents.
