V1.2.0a is a bugfix for the NYT channels and can be downloaded here
. Remember to edit the source url for each channel (insert your username and pass there).
Each NYT channel consists of
- the section's index,
- the first page of each article within the section, and
- the full "Printer-Friendly Format" page.
So basically go from the index to the article and in the article click on the link "Printer-Friendly Format".
Thanks to radleyp for helping me out here.
