good to see one of you guys here.. my little q is: i'd like to use navi-x to simply read newsfeeds with text and graphics. i'm on vista x64 and installed your plugin on one of the later svn builds of xbmc, but got only as far as it was able to read the new headlines of newsfeeds, but not the content. i tried to hit one of the headlines, it seemed to load something, but failed.

any hint?

cheers,azido :;):

Sorry my friend but I only work on the Navi-X website and the Adult Swim playlists! If you have questions about script functionality, please email the programmer for Navi-X, Rodejo at Rodejo16@gmail.com and he'll answer any and all of your "functionality" questions.

Tested 2 feeds (1 audio and 1 video) and they both work great! All you have to do is change the http to rss in the url and it worked great... Time to start finding more feeds...

Code:
<sources>
    <video>
        <default></default>
    <source>
      <name>The Feed Daily Video Podcast</name>
    <path>rss://www.g4tv.com/thefeed/podcasts/19/The_Daily_Feed_Video_Podcast.xml</path>
    </source>
    </video>
    <music>
        <default></default>
    <source>
      <name>The Junkies (New) 106.7 WJFK - Washington, D.C.</name>
      <path>rss://www.wjfk.com/pages/podcast/119547.rss</path>
    </source>
    </music>
</sources>

How do you sort these RSS feeds by date? When I try to sort by date all the posts have the date "12/31/1969" as the date. It does this for all the RSS video/audio podcasts I've tried. The XBMC RSS reader doesn't seem to read the post date from the RSS feed at all. Is there something special I have to do to get the RSS reader to read the date from each post?

Maybe a mal-formatted date field in the feed? Please pastebin an example feed so we can see what's going on.

Here are some of the RSS feeds I'm using.

http://www.spitzer.caltech.edu/features/hd/hdfeed.xml

http://www.apple.com/podcasts/apple_keyn...ynotes.xml

http://feeds2.feedburner.com/cnet/cartechvideohd

http://g4tv.com//thefeed/podcasts/19/The...odcast.xml

It seems like the RSS reader is not reading the "<pubdate>" entries from each of the items within the feeds.

Thanks for the help.

Posted feeds are working fine without any date issues. What platform you do you use and what version/revision of XBMC do you use?

Windows XP SP3
XBMC version 8.10
MediaStream Skin 1.0 R1470

Maybe I'm doing something wrong here. I added the RSS feeds as sources and I'm browsing them in "File" mode. Do I have to import them into the library? If so, how do I do that?

Thanks.

Adding it as source (rss://..) while in filemode is fine.. no need for library mode.
Please upgrade to a more recent version (search for daily builds) and report back.

I did a clean install of XBMC using jester latest build 17467 and still no change. All the sort date show up as "12/31/1969" still. Very strange.

Yeah, you are right. There's a problem with strptime on WIN32.. i will ask our windows guys to have a look.
