I have mythnews subscribed to various feeds from DigitalSpy?

They have reorganized their feeds since the urls were put into myth. Because of this they are returning redirect pages which mythnews cannot handle

Original URL was

which returns the following xml.

<?xml version="1.0" ?> <redirect>



which mythnews cannot cope with. This applys to both 0.21 and head

Additionally, the new site that you get sent to with the xml redirect, is then redirected again, but this time with an http redirect :(

refs #6654. Patches mythnews to follow http redirects.

Following the rss xml redirects still needs to be done.

Think this is largely handled now, except for one spot when subscribing to feeds. I have some code in MythNetvision? I wrote that handles redirects during subscription properly that I'll port to MythNews? for .24.

This has been solved for a while now, I thought there was one more spot, but they should all follow redirects now.
