BeyondPod Recognizes Updated Feeds but Not PodCasts

Dec 11, 2008 at 5:42 AM
I have BeyondPod set up to download on a schedule which works great for most of my feeds. However, for one (Wall Street Journal This Morning) it will update the feeds but not the Podcasts embedded within. I believe because the mp3 file always has the same name BeyondPod is unable to recognize the podcast has updated (it updates every day). If I delete the PodCast I can "re-download" but have to do this every day. The feed is available at:

Is there a configuration setting I can make to make this work? In addition to the lack of downloading BeyondPod always recognizes this as a single PodCast but multiple feeds.

Outside of this issue BeyondPod is a great program and I appreciate the effort that went into its development - Thank You.

There is a setting in the feed properties (Menu > Manage Feeds > Edit Feed) called "Force unique names". If you check it for the WSJ feed it should start working.
