RSS news feed on UMSP would actually be a really nice addition to this player. I hope its possible to implement it!

There is already a "Reader" plugin that does this. Draws images of your RSS feeds.

Haven't used it, but you can give it a go. There's also the Daily Podcasts plugin that displays media RSS feeds.

There's also (somewhere on this forum) a WDTVExt plugin I wrote which displays slashdot.com RSS feed. It was a proof-of-concept to show that it was possible to get and display RSS feeds with WDTVExt (with some limitations though).

Ah thanks! Will try and wrap my n00bie head around the reader plugin then!

Summary: Do you really want to read everything a publication writes? Normal people certainly don’t.
:lol:

I'm yet to migrate away from Google Reader, but I guess time is ticking away. Need to settle on an alternative by the end of the month.
