View Full Version : Failed to Retrieve RSS Feed

2007-04-08, 13:51

I am using the last official release of slimserver, which has worked well for 3 months. Recently the RSS feeds (screensaver) has stopped working "Failed to Retrieve RSS Feed".

I tried navigating to them direct - Plugins > Screensavers > RSS News Ticker - I get "Failed to Parse <[url]>" and "Failed to Connect <[url]>".

The RSS feeds in question are the default ones - BBC World, Slashdot, etc, plus some additional ones.

I have tried turning off Zone Alarm and have tested the network connections which are fine (it handles music and internet radio streams no problem)

I am using:
Win XP PC (wired), Squeezebox 3 (wireless), wireless ADSL router

Any assistance gratefully received,
Cheers, Mike

Can anyone please help? Even a link on how I uninstall and resinstall or something?

You're sure SlimServer has Internet access? Try playing Internet radio through SlimServer.

Yes, thank you. Internet radio works fine.

I am at my wits end - any assistance very gratefully received!
