Thank you for the program. Unfortunately, I noticed that I cannot download and read Polish RSS chanels. Is it a bug? RSS Bandit reads them without any problems.

What exactly happens? Post the feed URL's here and I'll take a look.
It's almost certainly an encoding issue - you might want to check this

It looks like the Website is saying the page encoding is ISO-8859-2 ("Central European"). However, the XML/RSS encoding is not specified, which I believe defaults to UTF-8 -- what Awasu is expecting. Probably some of the ISO-8859-2 characters are not really UTF-8, so Awasu complains.
Sites generating feeds should be explicit -- they should specify the correct XML/RSS encoding (and of course make sure the characters match that encoding).
