Bug: Duplicate RSS Entries Breaks Download

Eric first off thanks for a great application. One issue that has been bugging me for a while is that if the podcast publisher for some reason puts two or more entries in their RSS feed with the same title but one with an audio file embedded and one without Doggcatcher will not download the the file and just display the show description. Even worse is that if the audio had already been downloaded and at a later time they publish a duplicate entry without the file DC will remove the already in progress podcast and loose where you had left off.

I know that all of this would not be a problem if the podcast publisher would just stop posting duplicate entries in their feed but that doesn't appear to be happening any time soon.

You can try going in the feed

You can try going in the feed options and changing the feed identifier to something else than the default. GUID is a good choice usually. That should cause those two items to be treated as individuals.

Glad you like the app.
