It might be some rogue markup in the RSS feed that is miss-diagnosed by Apple. I just wanted to confirm that the problem is not with the server first.

Thanks! So if I get a 206 Partial Content response that means the server is compliant?

I followed your sourceforge link and saw it reported in the community feedback. To verify I have now scanned the source code and found "Like FDM? Try Personal Informer! The latest version of FDM comes with a free bonus: Personal Informer.", but it looks like it won't install the bonus (from the same guys who make Software Informer) without your permission. So accepting your answer. Thanks!

@slhck yes, I spent more than an hour reading through the features of apps recommended under the download-manager tag on superuser and couldn't find a scheduling feature mentioned. Because of bad experiences specifically with download helpers in the past, I prefer to not install and try these type of programs without a trustworthy recommendation. How would you try looking for some?

Thanks for the recommendation. It apparently comes bundled with borderline malware Software Informer. Has anyone had issues like this?

Thanks! I used this for starting services and didn't know one could launch drivers in this way. No dependencies in this case so it works great!
