I use the RSS feeds to scrape the HD video content into iTunes so i can then watch on my Apple TV in a different room from my Mac. I've been doing this for years and it's worked pretty much faultlessly until the last few weeks. I've noticed that not all of the videos are showing up in the RSS feeds.

For example:-

The Quicklooks feed hasn't been updated since 8th August with the Back to Bed quick look. Even though there have been at least 8 quick looks since then.

It's also worth pointing out that the separate RSS feeds are now no longer individually titled. So instead of Giant Bomb - Quicklooks, Giant Bomb - Features etc. etc. They are all just showing Giant Bomb - Videos. This makes it annoying when you've got 7 different RSS feeds all with the same name.

Irrespective of whether or not this is a game, a tech demo, a screen saver, a piece of art or whatever. The guy didn't do himself any favours with his responses to Patrick's questions.

@sanj: Discs are not damaged thankfully. Because it was late afternoon when I tested it, they can't get a courier out to pick up until Monday. Then they have to test it and send a new one or refund me. Either way we are talking Thursday at the earliest if I'm lucky.

Hopefully my PS4 on Friday will be ok. Fingers crossed!

Looks like I'm the first to post on this forum as being a victim of the faulty disc drive.

I insert a disc, any disc be it a game or a Blu-Ray, only to be greeted with a grinding noise and eventual disc read error message.

This was post day one update and post installation of the Blu-Ray player. There are videos on YouTube of fellow sufferers. Time to pack it up and ship it back to where it came. It's times like this i wish it was store bought instead of internet bought as i won't get my replacement this side of the PS4 release (i'm in UK)

The event itself was quite an eye opener, but not because of "Hey this is the next Sony thing" but because of "Hey this is the next generation y'all"

Sony have burnt their bridges with me due to their repeated miss-treatment of the eurpopean market, their eye gouging digital pricing, and their endless waiting of months to bring things over to europe compared to Microsoft.

From the actual games side of things, was good to see what the next generation is going to be capabale of as i believe there'll be parity between the specs of both next gen systems.

What i wasn't impressed with was Sony's lack of innovation. It seemd to take ideas from other areas (Kinect, Wii-U etc.) or just flat out buy up a company that had developed something neat (Gaiki). There was no actual Sony innovation in my opinion, just itteration on innovations that were dreamed up by somebody else.

I was hoping Sony would show me something to reel me back in, to re-gain some of that trust they've lost from me in the last few years, but nothing i saw made me jump out of my chair and say "PS4 is the one for me." Instead i thought "That's cool, but the new XBox will have the same graphics power etc. so no need to jump ship"

I have the premium member URLs configured in iTunes for both Comicvine and Giantbomb so it automatically downloads Quicklooks and Subscriber feeds etc.

They worked fine over the weekend as they grabbed the Nintendoland quick look but now i'm getting an error across all the video feeds.

"An internal server error occurred. Please check the URL.....etc etc"

As explained, the URLs are fine. I've tried on both PC and Mac and the URLs seem to be broken full stop so am now unable to download the HD video streams in iTunes.
