Media RSS Playback Stops After Weeks
« on: November 23, 2010, 11:28:01 AM »
I'm using Media RSS to display one of the canned news sites in a small window for 6 minutes then full screen for 2 minutes (to help mitigate screen burn - I was thinking) to help capture viewer attention at our shop floor entrance.  The player is the Windows MediaBox 100.

I had originally used the CNN News feed and got it to work just fine for weeks.  At some point it started displaying just [Media RSS] at the top of it's frame.  Playback worked just fine from the Player Preview in Signage Studio from multiple machines.  I just ended up changing the feed to ABC news.

That worked fine for weeks.  After that brief period I got a progress indicator stating that it was Loading 0%.  Again the Player Preview from Signage Studio worked just fine.  I attempted reboots, clearing the cache, and verbally threatening it.  I tried setting it to display the original CNN feed and that still doesn't work.  I just changed it to a different CNN feed and it's just fine.

Any ideas on what to try?  I'm going to run out of feeds at some point.

Yes, we do see sometimes issues with the CNN feed, so I would recommend using another source.
