Downloading Old Podcasts

New postby kellyjmc on Tue Feb 15, 2011 9:06 pm

I have subscribed to a potcast that has 280+ episodes. I cannot get podtrapper to download the headers of any past the last 100. I have gone online to view all the episodes and I would lilke to get out a few that seem to be out of reach. I have found a way to do it manually, but this is very laborious and makes it not worth the effort. Is there a more automated way to get out these older broadcasts? :?:

The first thing is to check and see what the RSS feed displays. Place it into a feed reader and see how many episodes show. Just because the podcast has that many, they don't necessarily put links for all the episodes in the RSS feed and PodTrapper can't pick them up. If that checks out alright, confirm that in the Storage Settings under "Max episodes to read from feed" has the right amount, so in this case if they have 280 you can set it to read 400 episodes.

Hope it works out, I've done the manual way a couple times and it sucks. :(
