TED Comments

Will not open

Negative Comment by dtale
about TED Oct 2012

Ted looked good and I made a small list of TV shows. It found them and I thought that I was set. Then it became buggy. The preferences would not move from one to the other. I closed it down and then would not open again. I downloaded ted again, it opened and then the same problem.
It might be the fact that I am using 10.6, not sure. Looked like a good program.

Doesn't work (Mac OS X)

Negative Comment by ergohack
about TED May 2012

On mac all it does is throw this error. "The feed from (insert show name here) is not from a supported source."
It does this even for the predefined feeds. I can even see it match the exact name of the file I want, but then nope, that error again.
Oh well...
TVShows it is, then.

This seems more or less abandoned right now.

about TED Jun 2011

This seems more or less abandoned right now. Would look for another alternative if the author hasn't updated recently.

Forums overrun by spam-bots. =(

Too bad, this was truly great.

This is really buggy and needs an update

This is really buggy at the moment and really needs an update, if any one has any other Linux / Windows alternatives it would help.
