I have read all the threads on this but I still can't get any joy with it. I have:
A simple layout with no background image
I have removed the region and re-added it but with no joy
I used several different proxy settings both authenticated and unauthenticated methods
Gave up trying to get the BCC, CNN etc feed off the internet and make a local file on the xibo web server:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" ?>
<rss version="2.0">
<title>General School Channel</title>
<description>General Channel</description>
 <title>School Update</title>
 This is the content of the school Feed
The above displays fine in IE

All I see scrolling is title text you put in the text box. Anything else I need to try? The proxy issues aside does it have an issue with a local web address as well such as http://xiboserver/rss.xml ? I wouldn't of thought so as other settings are using this address as well.
