Episode 446? Problems....
« on: November 25, 2015, 01:38:59 AM »
Friends,

I can't download episode 446 on iTunes.  In fact, it says DownRange Radio cannot be found on the server. 

Is anyone else having this problem?  Any solutions? 

Thanks!

We're looking into this. So far, we haven't been to able to replicate the problem. It plays fine on my iPhone App and on iTunes:

Note also that we had to change rss feed for the podcast, so some apps might not be updated.

The new feed address is: http://www.downrange.tv/blog/category/down-range-radio/feed/

I'm starting to understand a tiny, little bit....

When I go to my existing DRR podcast chapter (on my computer) and hit the refresh button, I get the exclamation point and it says "could not be found on server". 

But, when I go to iTunes, find DRR, and then hit the "get" button, it will download onto my computer.  However, it starts a new "chapter" of DRR.  So, I was able to download the newest episode. 

I hope this makes sense. 

Thanks for your help and attention. 

Sincerely,

Yog

A change in feed is the cause of this. I've learned it takes some time to get feeds updated on different apps. Sorry for the inconvenience, but iTunes informed us that our old feed needed to be updated, so we had no choice but to get a brand new system.

Marshal,

Thanks for the quick responses and your attention. 

Does this mean that new episodes of DRR will download into the new podcast "chapter"?

To be honest with you, iTunes can be very confusing. On mine, it downloaded on the "old" chapter, so as of now, I cannot give you a good answer. We'll keep an eye on it.

Yes, it is very confusing and frustrating. 

Thanks for your help and I'll consider this "closed".

Yeah, this was confusing and frustrating.  This thread sort of explains why nothing had posted to Itunes in a couple of weeks.  I resubscribed to the new feed and hope the new episodes will start coming through automatically again.  I download to Itunes on a windows7 computer, then transfer to an mp3 player along with the other podcasts I want to listen to for the day.  That way I program my listening ahead of time and don't have to screw around with a podcast app while I am driving.
