I agree, would love to have Custom RSS at the top to make it easier to access.
I use the ->| button to get to the bottom.
Yup ... That'll work. My comment was more of a marketing bent rather than functionality, however. How many users aren't even aware this can be done because the option is burried at the bottom of the pile? Move it to the top and let's see how popular this can be!
Looks like GeekBeat was added to the VOD list as of Monday. Thanks Stephen!
I didn't have to reboot, but the CNET HD feed (which is basically all of their other feeds put together AFAIK) didn't update between last Friday and Wednesday. Going to CNET itself, I saw a few newer videos..
I thought the Tivo just did what iTunes does -- look at a podcast feed.
(It's a pain that the tivo only keeps 10 episodes.. so I have to go manually download episodes most of the time..)
Any chance of adding support for alternate ports for the RSS feeds? I'd like to use my own feeds, but using something other than port 80.
Why do my messages not get posted? This is the third time I've tried to post. WTF.
What's it gonna take to get Hulu RSS Feeds to work with my TiVo? Who do I need to talk to to make that happen?
You need to talk to Hulu.
Thanks! On a side note.. I was just checking out this TiVo Galleon software and am REALLY impressed. I might be able to get my videos streaming for free after all!

I can't seem to get any of the RSS Feeds that had video to work anymore. I spoke to the website owner and he says he hasn't changed a thing. Any ideas about what might be going on?
Is there a way to have a custom RSS feed automatically fetch new episodes without having to manually download them?
Why not and how difficult it it to intergrate into the TIVO OS?
Sorry, but I don't have those answers. I'm as much outside the walls of TiVo engineering as you are.
RSS readers are fairly basic. I cannot imagine this would be difficult to implement.
Sorry to resurrect an old thread, but: are custom rss feeds completely dead? I recently spent some time inputting a few that I knew were valid and they all came back with the 'no feed at that address' error. Anyone know for sure?
I've given up on the RSS feeds. I'm using an Apple TV for podcasts and Netflix and use the TiVo for everything else.
Post some of the feeds here and we can double-check them. Most of the time, the ones that are invalid are in either incompatible formats or have malformed XML.
Thanks for checking in, Stephen. I did get it to work; the problem was that the feed scrapes a web page and it was taking too long, so the TiVo would just time out. I noticed a couple of things I thought I'd pass along:
1) Alternate ports aren't a problem, this feed isn't on 80 and it works fine
2) The feed has to be accessible from the internet, so if it's on a home computer you have to use a dynamic DNS and point the TiVo at that (a 198.168.*.* address won't work)
3) I couldn't get the optional fields to work (I have an HD). Am I right in assuming that those fields only get used if the feed is indexed?
