calibre and prs505 updated firmware problem

I just installed the prs505 firmware update and downloaded the ny times news feed with calibre. The sony won't successfully format the file. I select it, the sony formats, restarts, and then I'm back in the main menu. If I select the ny times again, the sony again formats, restarts, and I'm back at the main menu (I tried this numerous times, as well as deleting the times and downloading the feed again, but to no avail). I then used calibre to download the new yorker magazine newsfeed. When I selected it from the sony menu, if formatted, restarted, and I could then read it. This is how the sony worked with the original firmware. What I never could understand was why the sony formats the file and restarts when I first select it when calibre sends a .lrf file.

Suggestions of a helpful nature eagerly awaited.

Scott

Hmm looks like SONY managed to worsen the LRF rendering bugs. I dont have any short term solutions, but hopefully once I write html2epub you will be able to use the EPUB versions of the feeds.

Since the update, I use Calibre to get the feed; then save it to my desktop and use eBook Library to load it on the reader. It's a little cumbersome but it works until we have a better solution.

as an update I report that today I used calibre to download the NY Times, and it formatted and opened quite norrmaly on the prs505. Apparently the feed on Sunday was some how defective.

yeah well SONY broke something. I'm not going to try to fix it, as my main development effort at the moment is concentrated on html2epub. Once that's done, you will be able to read the news in epub format and hopefully these crashes will be a thing of the past.
