I'm trying to get the news and weather plugins working on my Ubuntu
breezy box.

If I go to a news feed I get 'failed to retrieve news' and with the
weather plugin I just get timeouts while retrieving.

mythnews 0.18.1
mythweather 0.18.1

dansguardian installed on this system. Shorewall and squid are
configured to act as a transparent proxy.

sending any requests.

Has anyone any ideas?
