The reason is simply, the second RSS feed is not properly formatted for automated downloading.

Here is what an item looks like:
    <title>eztv_it: Cops S23E16 HDTV XVID-BAJSKORV [eztv] -</title>
    <description>eztv_it: Cops S23E16 HDTV XVID-BAJSKORV [eztv] -</description>
    <pubDate>Sun, 27 Feb 2011 01:48:05 +0000</pubDate>
    <twitter:source>&lt;a href=&quot;; rel=&quot;nofollow&quot;&gt;EZTV API&lt;/a&gt;</twitter:source>

Inside the <link> item, there should be a link to the torrent instead of a link to a Web page. Instead, the download link is included in the <title> and <description> element which is uncommon.

See for ezrss:
   <title><![CDATA[Cops 23x16 [HDTV - BAJSKORV]]]></title>

   <category domain=""><![CDATA[TV Show / COPS]]></category>
   <pubDate>Sat, 26 Feb 2011 19:47:58 -0500</pubDate>
   <description><![CDATA[Show Name: Cops; Episode Title: N/A; Season: 23; Episode: 16]]></description>
   <enclosure url="[eztv].torrent" length="183158124" type="application/x-bittorrent" />

The link actually points to a torrent, link in most Bittorrent RSS feeds.

Can you help with this problem?
