Is there a limit to the number of podcasts and/or RSS feeds that you can have listed on the Home / Server Settings / Plugins page?

I have 9 podcasts and 9 RSS feeds listed now, and when I add a new address in the empty box and click Change, nothing happens.

Thanks for your help!

I'm able to add more than 10 podcasts. Is it possible that there's a
problem with the 10th item you are trying to enter?

I an add up to 14 podcasts. After that if I try to add one and hit Change nothing happens.
Have reported this to Kevin Pearsall in Techsupport who is looking into this.

The only way to add it si to edit the preferences file and add the URL and the name (they do in 2 separate places).

Then stop and start slimserver.

Right now I have 7 podcasts and 10 RSS feeds listed, and when I enter the address for the next podcast or RSS feed and click Change, nothing happens. There's nothing wrong with the URLs as far as I can see, I open them in Explorer and they look fine.

These are the new URLs I tried:
podcast: http://www.cnn.com/services/podcasting/newscast/rss.xml
RSS feed: http://www.sr.se/xml_news/rss/ekonomiRSS.xml

As you can tell, I was able to add one more RSS feed after this problem first occurred, so the error seems to come and go.

This seems to be a spurious problem, so probably a bug somewhere. Something for the development team to look into?

Can you try adding a different URL, maybe one that you know works?

Those two feeds are both (coincidentally) triggering a bug in
slimserver.

I've filed it as bug 2185 on http://bugs.slimdevices.com/

Thanks for the report.

I tried adding the RSS feed http://www.sr.se/xml_news/rss/nyheterRSS.xml, which I already have in my list (so it works), and the same thing happens when I click Change.

Thanks for posting this as a bug, I hope to see this fixed, maybe in the next version of SlimServer...
