Podcast player channel Broken? "Feed is incompatible.."

Getting the FEED IS INCOMPATIBLE OR MAY BE DOWN AT THIS TIME warning this week when trying to use our Podcast Player channel - From here: https://github.com/rokudev/podcast-player-channel/blob/master/components/PodcastScene.brs that would be A 'Global warning' - what is wrong here? This channel has worked fine since launch, and the .xml it is fed with still checks out as valid etc., in fact nothing has changed at our end, only i see all our Roku devices have updated - did this update break the Podcast Player?

Re: Podcast player channel Broken? "Feed is incompatible.."

Testing the provided example of a simple podcast channel fails with the same result: "feed is incompatible or may be down at this time" - as provided here: https://github.com/rokudev/sample-chann ... hannel.zip

Pretty sure the RSS .xml is working - iTunes, TuneIN and various .xml validations all show no problems.

This is something ROKU have done? 'lil help Anyone?

Re: Podcast player channel Broken? "Feed is incompatible.."

Solved: the .xml had some basic errors inside it going back to 2014.. these were simple grammar errors, and the odd formatting problem - nothing fatal, but they now appear to cause a failure of basic RSS feed validation - i guess the validation is now less tolerant.

A session with https://validator.w3.org/feed/check.cgi found the problems, now We are back in business.
