Has anybody had any luck with universal sports integration? I tried using their RSS feed to input into Boxee, but it mangles the URL and wont launch the videos.

Sounds like a great idea for an app.

I agree. I tried somehow pulling the content off their site, but their RSS scheme and Silverlight complicates it too much for my abilities.

I think it would be in NBC Universal's best interest to get an app out there in time for the winter olympics! It certainly wouldn't hurt to have it going well before then, showing all of the sports as they lead into the olympics. Although I'm not sure if the boxee team will be able to get much support from NBC considering the state of their current relationship.

Try this out.

Add rss://pipes.yahoo.com/pipes/pipe.run?_id=38c76ce4c0bf5d7d51b2245201b22018&_render=rss

as a manual source.

Simple RSS based Universal Sports app added to my repository - dir.nexthop.ie

Could do with a helper2 file created for it (See http://wiki.boxee.tv/JavaScript_API for more on this)

If someone is interested in making a flashier app for Universal Sports the rss feeds it uses are:

Most Recent:
rss://pipes.yahoo.com/pipes/pipe.run?_id=991d7118dd4e1d21350b6788d14d898a&_render=rss&feed=most-recent
