Custom RSS Feed buffer limit?

Does anyone know if the built in custom RSS feed feature that allows for adding podcasts has the same buffer limit as HME streaming videos used in programs like Stream Baby? Would it be possible to add a custom RSS feed made by me that has all my videos and stream them from the custom RSS feed section and not run in to the buffer limit?

Good question. However, the short answer (for me) is that your RSS feeds would have to live on a public Internet site, accessible from tivo.com, where the HME-based VOD app lives. This limits the feature's usefulness considerably.

My cable company / ISP gives me 2GB of web space. I should be able to host an RSS file from there. If that doesn't work I will try Microsoft's Skydrive. I'm going to give it a try and report back.

Update: Was able to host a RSS file from my web space provided by the cable company and have a video play. I'm uploading a large video file to test the buffer. But while it's transferring I will look for a large video hosted somewhere online that I can use to test.

I tried uploading a video that is larger than 1GB but found that my web host and Microsoft's Skydrive both have file size limits. So I looked on the web for a 1GB+ file that would be easy to link to from an RSS feed but had no luck.

My conclusion is even if it does support large files it is pretty useless since my web host doesn't support large files and 1GB+ files on the web are very rare.
