More Online Services - all gone?

Main menu / Online / More Online Services:

When you selected this in the old days, there was a moderate selection of pre-entered links to connect to, two of which were TWiT TV (HD) and TWiT TV (SD)

These were direct links to Leo Laporte's TWiT studios list of shows, and up until the last time I used it a few months ago, the links mostly worked. When I say mostly, if the show was still in production, you could get there.

Now - all gone. Nada. Zip. Nothing. Nopey the Dog would be happy.

I'm assuming the folks at TWiT changed the connectivity urls somehow, which is odd since they were the same for at least 10 years.

Does anyone know, or has anyone gone to the trouble of editing the properties file for TWiT to re-link again with what they're sending out? There are a couple of properties files in the the SageTV folder which lust all the prior, working urls, but I’m having trouble figuring out what the new ones are, and how to substitute them into the properties file.

And for those who may have no idea what I'm talking about, here's the web url for all their current shows: https://twit.tv/shows?shows_active=1

I know there are a million other ways to find and watch TWiT programs, but I actually used the SageTV pre-programmed links since they were offered up in 'More Online Services'

Thanks

This is a link about creating your own Online Services link.

It is a sticky under "SageTV 7 Customization's".

Most likely TWIT changed something on there side. I believe the Online Services depended on the RSS feed to link to work, but don't quote me on that.

Yes, for some reason RSS does come to mind as well, and I believe they DO still supply an RSS feed, but something in it changed. That’s where I’m stumped. Thanks for the link, every little bit helps


Edit Uodate: fixed the problem by adding an ‘s’ to http in the properties file for all the listed shows. I guess they updated their servers to be ‘secure’. Everything’s back up, linking and working.
