              Shit, I just ordered one. I mean, had I been using a Zune instead of my Sony MP3, I'd have full achievements by now!

                    In the iTunes music store, you can now search for "RPD Dispatch" (or just browse for it in the podcast section) and you should find it.

                    There should be a button when you select it that lets you "subscribe", this will make iTunes automatically download the latest episode.

                    Alternatively, you can (in the main iTunes window) click on "Advanced", then select "Subscribe to Podcast" and then finally past this link: http://www.the-horror.com/rss/rpd_dispatch.xml into the window that opens and select Ok. It should now appear under "Podcasts" in your iTunes interface

                    Other music applications that supports subscribing to podcasts via RSS feeds should also be able to add that URL to its subscription list


                    I guess we might write a tiny "how to/help section" for this to put up on the front page (there are currently some stuff being changed "under the hood" to the main site at the moment)

                      There *was* a feed submitted to the Zune Marketplace as well, I am not sure if they've received it yet - the system doesn't seem, well, finished so I am not sure if they will confirm with me or not if it's gone live.

                          Bumping for some love to the RSS feed link. Have added it to my mobile and it works a charm, would be handy for when i can't get to the PC to download the latest podcasts.

                            Hello guys, this is my first post here.

                            I'm having an issue with this feed. When I add it to iTunes, it shows this message:



                            I created a thread on Apple's Discussions Forum, here is the link:

                            http://discussions.apple.com/thread....readID=2662326

                            I was told that this problem could only be solved by you, the ones who can edit the feed.

                            Here's the answer I got:

                            Originally posted by Roger Wilmut1
                            Though your episodes can be played in a browser by using the link from the feed, or entering the URL, none of them plays when subscribing in iTunes.

                            The URL of the latest episode is
                            video.the-horror.com/RPD Dispatch - Episode 13.mp3

                            which contains spaces. Spaces are not allowed in a URL: a browser will deal with this by substituting the code %20. but iTunes can't cope.

                            You should either rename all the files without spaces, and amend the feed to match, or go through the feed replacing the spaces with %20, thus:

                            http://video.the-horror.com/RPD%20Di...isode%2013.mp3
                            I would like to know if you guys could repair this issue.

                            Thank you very much.

                              Updated OP with our new RSS feed generator. This makes things insanely easier on me and won't break the RSS feed when I put in some minor character that the feed doesn't like. It also lets you stream us from a little flash player thats installed.

                              RiKeSaN, I've also fixed that issue.
