It's working OK in trunk with the new URLs. Any errors in the frontend log?

There are a couple of feeds that have been removed so no longer work and
it looks like several new ones have been added so it would be nice to
get them updated, at the very least the ones that no longer work need to
be removed. If you don't do it someone else will have to :-)
The best thing to do is to create a ticket at
http://cvs.mythtv.org/trac/newticket and attach a patch file if you know
how to create one or the complete compressed news-sites.xml file and I
will make sure the new feeds get committed to both the fixes and trunk
branch so everyone benefits.
