BA:Connected Media List Not Working

We have a sample XML feed that follows the documentation for a properly-formatted feed. The feed currently contains one sample image (PNG). It's linked to a Media List in BA:Connected with no other changes/settings. Published to a player with Local Network. It's still not working. Is this something I'm missing with using a Media List? The content works with a Live Feed widget, but not Media List.

    Try to place the url to image in the description tag too.

    While it doesn't seem to make sense, it works like that in BA Classic.

    That worked! We figured that out yesterday after reading through old community posts, and I think you were the commenter on the post for this topic on BA Classic, so double thank you for your help!

    Any suggestions on how to modify this with a parser script to fix this instead of re-writing all our feeds?

    We have this generic parser script:

    Sub ParseDynplaylist(xmlFileName$ as String, itemsByIndex as object, itemsByTitle as Object, userVariables As Object)
         xml = CreateObject("roXMLElement")
         if not xml.Parse(ReadAsciiFile(xmlFileName$)) then 
              print "xml read failed"
              if type(xml.channel.item) = "roXMLList" then
                   index% = 0
                        for each itemXML in xml.channel.item
                             ItemTitle$ = itemXML.title.GetText()
                             itemUrl$ = itemXML.link.GetText()
                             itemsByTitle.AddReplace(ItemTitle$, itemUrl$)
                             index% = index% + 1
    end Sub

    I tried contacting BA support a week ago and haven't heard back. Any other tips on how to pass back the medium tag to the Media List object in BA:Connected?
