Since late November Beyond Pod has been failing to update an authenticated feed, the Bob and Tom Show. This is happening on two devices, a Nexus 7 2013 WiFi running Android 6.0 and a Moto X Pure/Style 2015 running Android 5.1.1 - both stock/unrooted and both currently running Beyond Pod 4.2.10 (beta, I think). I contacted B&T support and was told that Beyond Pod is having problems with authenticated feeds and to use Podcast Addict instead (I confirmed that feed is working in that app on the Moto X). The last episode of this show that Beyond Pod was able to pull down was the ones from 11-20-15 although there are shows as recent as 12-1-15.



Here's the log from the update fail.

I noticed that the feed seemed to take a long time to access via a browser, so I changed the connection timeout in Beyond Pod advanced menu settings to 200 seconds and now it's downloading.

Glad to hear it. I guess it may be one of those which lists podcasts oldest first, rather than most recent first, so it takes longer to get to the new ones (and progressively longer still as they add more).

But since I can't access it, that's just a guess.

If it is the case, it might be worth suggesting most recent first to the publisher, though.
