notifications for new DVD's

Is it possible to get notifications of new DVD's ordered or received by CPL? I'm using the RSS for the "dvd f" feed and I didn't see "Burn Notice" in this feed, but I see it is at the library. The "dvd tv series" feed seems to no longer be updated, although the link for the feed still appears on your web page. Thanks.

Thank you for contacting us regarding RSS feeds for catalog items.

The RSS feeds for items depend on the ability for the catalog to return search results in a timely manner. As you can see when doing a general search like all fiction books, it sometimes takes a long time to get results. If the time it takes for search results to appear is longer than the time our RSS-ifier is willing to wait for them, the feed fails to load.

It appears that the tv series feed runs into this problem. In an attempt to fix this, we've set our server to search for tv series manually, earlier in the day. Since the catalog's results get faster after the first time you search for them, this should force the tv series feed to update. I will keep an eye on it over the next few weeks.

Thanks again for letting us know about this issue.
