    Hey all.

    So, the problem is as it says in the title: The RSS gadget in Windows 7 is slow to show updates on the TPU review feed. It does update and everything, but it takes a couple of days for the feeds to show.

    I added the TPU feed to the Microsoft Feeds map in IE, which is they way to go if you want to show non MS feeds in the gadget.

    Any ideas of why this is? I can live with it, i'm just curious of the reason why it happens.

    Thanks for looking!

    It does work fine, which is why I posted it in General Software and not in Comments and feedback. The feed itself is fine, but the gadget doesn't take it up for some reason even if I update it manually.

    ive noticed the same problem at times, such as earlier this month it was about 2 days behind what was on the homepage. To be noted it wasn't a Sunday either.
