There is a download option Big Grin, it's in the plugin settings menu.

The podcasts are no longer working. I'm on an xbox using the jan 25, 2009 build and this was working a few days ago. The TV Shows section appears to be intact.

I'm getting the error:
sys:1: DeprecationWarning: Non-ASCII character '\xe2' in file Q:\plugins\video\G4TV\default.py on line 150, but no encoding declared; see http://www.python.org/peps/pep-0263.html for details

here's the full xbmc.log file: http://pastebin.ca/1332355

I found that the newest xbox build from march 3rd is having issues playing Around the Net without resorting to buffering a lot. I'm able to watch an entire episode using the January 25 build with no buffering.
Here's the march 3 build's debug: http://pastebin.ca/1353278
Here's the jan 25 build's debug: http://pastebin.ca/1353279

I exited both of them prematurely at around the same time in the podcast. I tried several times using the march build just to make sure that it wasn't a random occurrence and it was replicated every time.

I'm not sure if it's a problem with the xbmc build, the plugin, or how they're interacting with each other but I wanted to give you a heads up that there's something going on with it. I haven't run into any other errors with the most recent t3ch build though, so hopefully it's an easy fix.

If it makes a difference, my Xbox is softmodded with the T3ch 03-04-09 SVN release of XBMC.
Also, as a side-note/request, any hope of adding the Ninja Warriors streams to this plugin?
Wii's and PS3's get a decent page by and maintained by G4TV:
Wii: http://g4tv.com/wii/index.html
PS3: http://g4tv.com/ps3/index.html
(Sorry if this looks like too much scope creep!)

Since the plug-in works flawlessly with the january 25 build, I think that the problem is with the 3-04-09 T3CH build. In the channelsurfing.net thread Waffa pointed me towards a thread showing the problems with the build including memory issues.

Waffa Wrote:Script is probaly not broken, march 4 t3ch has problems. And also the february build got that problem.
See this tread.http://forum.xbmc.org/showthread.php?tid=46490

I always maintain the last working t3ch along with the newest t3ch build. I'm currently using the 1-25 build as my main build and I have the 3-4 build as my second build to run the programs requiring the special:// format.

thanks again stacked. I use this on at least an every-other-day basis.
