Failed Feed whilst downloading The Guardian

Hi,

I'm regularly running across failed feed errors when downloading the guardian. The news appears to download ok and automatically transfers to my 505. However, if I open up the contents page I sometimes find that one or two of them are highlighted as being failed feeds. Selecting them gives an 'ordinal not in range error'. This morning it was the 'money' and 'travel' sections which failed to download correctly. Downloading again can fix the problem but might result in another of the feeds encountering problems. Sometimes it works no problem.

Any ideas???

Sounds like either the guardian server is having trouble or your internet connection is very slow. Can anyone else confirm this behavior?

I've only had my reader since Monday so I'm not sure if it's an intermittent problem. My connection speed should be fine though so I can't see it being that. Maybe something to do with the guardian server as you suggest.

Just a quick update. I downloaded the guardian again today and it contained the same two failed feeds as yesterday....money and travel. Not sure if this is significant or helpful but thought i'd post anyway.

I just tried it, it worked for me. Are you running calibre on windows?

Yeah.....using Windows Vista. Here is the section of the log I feel relates to the error. I've just tried it another twice with the same results.
