I am just getting through installing an new TC8000 Advanced Edition and am playing around with getting an RSS feed working in a graphic via the Datalink feature. I have tried following the little info in the user manual, but can't seem to figure it out. :bangwall:

There is obviously something that I am missing, but very little in the way of documentation. I tried calling support for some help, but 3 hours later I am still waiting on a callback.

Anyone able to help to get this working I would appreciate it.

I think there are two types of RSS feeds, a version 1.0 and 2.0. I believe that the Datalink RSS reader only supports version 2.0 feeds.

Here is a sample one you can try. It will pull weather information for San Antonio, TX.
