Valid RSS cannot be auto-discovered

At the moment I can:

- In Firefox, open the URL and it will show the content of the feed
- I can copy the source and validate it using the direct input method on the W3C RSS validator

What I cannot do:

- Validate the feed using the URL, I get HTTP error 500
- Feed demon does the same, I get HTTP error 500

Just looking for ideas on how to debug this.

Welcome to WebmasterWorld, DanF.

That response code is an Internal Server Error. Likely an .htaccess issue or invalid cgi script. Glad you got it sorted.
