TalkSport (UK radio station) Podcasts not downloading

Hi

New to this forum, so hello. Been a Doggcatcher user on my Nexus 5 for a while, and I rate it highly.

I just wondered if anyone else has encountered an issue I have found with TalkSport podcasts - basically, they haven't downloaded for over a month.

I subscribe to two podcasts from TalkSport, and it is only from there that the issue exists. All other podcast download, subscriptions etc are fine. I also know that the podcasts are published - as my iDevice is getting them OK in the Apple Podcast app.

I tried unsubscribing, and re-subscribing, and I get:

error loading feed: java.lang.exception: RSS URL doesn't seem valid: unable to resolve host "feeds.talksport.co.uk": No address associated with the hostname.

Now, I understand what the message is saying, but has anyone got a solution / suggested next step? Any guidance would be appreciated.

Cheers

Craig

What's the name of the TalkSPORT feed you're having a problem with? They currently use Feedburner URL's example "Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast Best Bits"
http://feeds.feedburner.com/AlanBrazilSportsBreakfastPodcastFromTalksport

Hi Wayne

Hi Wayne

Thanks for that. I think that explains it. The feed info I have (on a feed I haven't deleted - Brian Moore's Full Contact) is http://feeds.talksport.co.uk/full-contact-rugby-show.

Probably a case of just substituting talksport with feedburner.

I will give it a go. Thanks for the heads up.

Cheers

Craig

A further update. Talksport

A further update. Talksport appear to have changed their RSS feed details for a number (if not all) shows.

No mention of feedburner, but the address for The Warm Up with Johnny Vaughan for example, is:
http://talksport.com/itunes/talksport-radio/the-warm-up-with-johnny-vaug...

Just put that into Doggcatcher manually, and it works a treat.

A further update. Looks like there was just an error on the day I discovered the issue. If you "search" for The Warm Up, in now subscribes successfully. Previously, as mentioned, it errored with message in my first post.

Anyway, thanks again for replying etc Wayne.

Cheers

Craig
