    My Cnet downloads have stopped. Is anyone else having this problem?

    Yup...nothing has downloaded since Saturday. I think CNET changed their video section on their website, might have affected their video feeds. Anyone have any idea what is going on?

    None since Saturday as well. Anyone attempt to setup CNET downloads again to solve the problem?

    Resetting the CNET SP does not force new downloads. There are just no new programs in the queue. Hmmm.

    I seem to recall a similar gap a few years ago. Not sure the cause or solution, but downloads resumed.

    Not sure if this is a permanent change, but most of the new CNET videos are available under the "Find TV, Movies, & Videos" => "Web Video Hotlist" (bottom item) on the HD menu. I prefer the auto-download setup myself.

    Agree, the Hotlist app is mostly crap, plus commercials are inserted into the stream. Blechh!

    I'm subscribed to 1 CNET show. It downloaded last weeks episode again late this week (and the audio quality was terrible) by mistake. It then downloaded this weeks episode shortly thereafter... but the audio quality on that episode was terrible as well.

    Just watched Cnets 404 podcast. The problem is on Cnets side. None of their RSS feeds are updating. They're working to fix the issue.

    I got one for CNET On Cars (HD) yesterday, but it definitely wasn't HD more like widescreen SD (barely) with horrible sound. So it's not completely fixed yet.

    Tivo's integration of this stuff with search really sucks, to put it mildly.

    Yeah, the problem started with me about a week or so ago. I found that I could select individual shows (i.e. "On Cars" as opposed to the "All CNET Show" (or what ever it was called) but the sound and video aren't just terrible, they are down right unintelligible. At least on my TiVo HD. I have another TiVo, a base Series 3 and it can at least play the videos, but the sound is bad.

    5 CNet programs appears on my TiVo this morning. No quality issues noted.

    I've been receiving the downloads the entire time but since last week they've all been in 480p which accounts for the crappy picture and sound. The same issue is occurring on the Hotlist app and when manually watching through the "video podcast" section on the SD menu.

    The titles of the show have also been changed. It isn't always obvious which ones are CNET Update or 404, etc.

    It's definitely on the CNET side of things, even their iTunes feeds are impacted. I subscribe in the iOS podcasts app and that too seems to be affected by whatever changes or issues they are having.

    I am having an issue too. I have been getting the downloads, but the audio sounds like Mickey Mouse. So bad, I can't watch them. It started early last week. I am subscribed to the HD feed. I also tried the SD feed, but had the same problem with the audio.

    Bummer.

    My audio sounds ok, but is out of sync with video. My Techzilla sound does the same. I agree with slowbiscuit the video is down graded from HD for whatever reason.

    Got a new ep of On Cars a couple of days ago and it's still crappy.
