I've migrated over to Google and now the MyBrand functionality doesn't
seem to be working. My RSS feed at http://weblogs.asp.net/jgaylord/privaterss.aspx
is setup to work with Feedburner and serve content to
http://feeds.jasongaylord.com/JasonNGaylord. However, I get a 404. I
made the necessary DNS changes and choose ReSync in the Feed
Troubleshooter. What's going on?

I'm having the same problem. I moved to Google, updated my CNAME and
now all my feeds are showing 404 errors (although the Original Feed
address is still working)

Help!

Just did some experimenting with the CNAME record. My feeds work if I
use feedproxy.google.com instead of the odd address I was given when I
migrated to Google.

Instead of:

feeds CNAME ericcoolworks.feedproxy.ghs.google.com.

This seems to work:
feeds CNAME feedproxy.google.com.

Not sure for how long it will work, but it's working now.

I'll try that. Mine was jasongaylordgmail.feedproxy.ghs.google.com.
I'm switching it now to that feedproxy.google.com.

I also blogged this here: http://weblogs.asp.net/jgaylord/archive/2009/02/03/google-ignoring-feedburner.aspx

Oh and it doesn't seem to be working yet. I'll try to resync the feed.

Unfortunately, my hack no longer seems to be working.
I have not found a way to get the MyBrand feature to work.

So much for Feedburner.

Of course. The minute I post about things still being broken, I try
one more time and it's fixed!

I did change the CNAME back to the originally suggested
blahblah.feedproxy.ghs.google.com. Did a resync and I'm back in
business.
Hopefully for good.

We found (and fixed) some inconsistencies related to MyBrand for
recent publishers — our apologies for the hassle, you should be in
good shape once again.

My feeds have now been down for three weeks because of a mybrand
issue. I wonder if you'll get rest of us in good shape in near future.

I cannot activate MyBrand because it's saying my domain
feeds.tsoots.fi is already in use. Must say i feel a bit frustrated at
the moment.
