Amino STB Sometimes Drops the RSS Description Field

Postby Paul.J » Tue Jun 21, 2011 11:09 am

I am playing RSS stories from a file on my Amino A130 STB. Sometimes it only shows the Title field and does not show the Description for an RSS story. Any thoughts?

This is how RSS stories are built on Amino STBs:

A single full RSS story is a combination of:

a. Start image or text
b. Title
c. Separator image or text
d. Description
e. End image or text

The current implementation of the player limits the length of the whole RSS story to 4000 pixels.

It means that the allowed number of characters in the Title and Description depends on:

a. Size of the Start, Separator and End Images;
b. The characters used - a lot of 'i' characters take the same space as much fewer 'w's;

The DMB player checks the length of every RSS story and, if the total length is too long, it discards the Description and shows only the Title.
