Anyone find any good sports news feeds? I'd especially like one that scrolls sports scores.

dude ive been looking and i think what u guys want is more of a sports ticker than a rss sports feed. the difference is an rss feed which is mainly used for headlines will connect once grab the info from the appropriate sights and display it, how ever it wont refresh so the same info would scroll until u reboot the box. a ticker like the one u see on the bottom of the screen on espn constantly refreshes and is used for displaying constantly changing numbers, ie sports scores and stock activities etc.

So i have found some really good ticker feeds on the web, but none of them will work for the box. However i am still looking and i might have an idea how we could pull this off. It may take a little longer than expected though dry.gif

I wonder if the Avalaunch developers can make Ava compatible with RSS 2.0? It seems like many sites use 2.0 and those will not work with Ava.

I would also like to know, as it would be VERY convenient having a sports ticker in Avalaunch.
