Downloading older episodes of feeds

I have been trying to download some early episodes of a podcast but can't seem to get back that far. I have changed my Auto downloads number to a huge number and also the "number of items" setting. But nothing gets me back far enough. This particular feed has over 300 episodes and I need episodes in the first 50. Any ideas?

What's the feed url?

The number of items is what you are looking for. You should be able to fetch whatever number of episodes you set that to...unless the publisher does not publish as many as you are looking for.

Post the url and I'll check it out.

Same Problem

I just purchased the program and am the process of setting up my feeds and marking all the episodes I haven't listened to yet as "New". The "Number of Items" setting was at 10 globally and was sufficient for all my feeds except for BOL (http://buzzoutloudpodcast.cnet.com). I have about 5 weeks behind and need to mark the most recent 25 as new. Even after changing the number of items settings from 10 to 30 for that particular feed (no longer following the global setting) and "Updating" the feed, no more items are displayed.

Any thoughts?

EDIT: Apparently the BOL feed only goes back 10 episodes. Google Reader and iTunes must cache older feed items because I'm able to see more than 10 in those feed catchers.

Short history

Yep, but if you set the 'retain expired' option for the feed, you won't lose any more as they roll off the old end.

Im having this very same problem,

Im trying to get back to the start of season 2 of Mysterious universe podcast but it only goes back 10 eps (regardless of the number of items selected)

http://feeds.feedburner.com/mysteriousuniverse/podcast

Older podcasts

Google apparently archives older podcasts no longer in the RSS feed for use in Reader and Listen. DC doesn't currently seem to be able to access any such Google archives, but perhaps eric will be able to figure out a way to do this in the future, possibly as part of integration with Google Reader.

Hope that helps,
John
