Sports App

Hey guys,

Anyone have a sports app that would run in Galleon. You know check the local sports scores...and perhaps the national ones!

Thanks!

ESPN RSS Feeds

Well, this is close, but not exact: you can use the RSS Reader in Galleon to view RSS feeds containing sports scores and news. Decent looking feeds:

ESPN:
http://sports.espn.go.com/espn/rss/index

USA Today:

Fox Sports:

None of those rss feeds gives current sports scores. There has to be some way to get updated sports scores onto the TiVo.

Umm, OK, then perhaps I need to reword things a little bit:

"Galleon has a great feature that supports RSS feeds. RSS allows near real-time updates of information feeds such as news and stock information. I strongly suspect that with a little research, you might be able to find RSS feeds that provide real-time sports scores. I have included some general links to sports news RSS feeds above as a pointer in the right direction to give you an example of how you might use such a thing. There is no sports-scores application for TiVo that I am aware of."

Better?

I actually did a little more internet research regarding the ability to grab
sport scores using a RSS Feed. From what I've read it appears there a few companies that actually provide the sports scores "real time" and ESPN, FOX, ABC, etc etc..pay these companies. Hence getting them via RSS is currently unlikely.

Atleast thats what Ive read so far!

Perhaps a smart script that extracts info from the html on a scores webpage? CBS/Yahoo/NFL etc.
WAY over my head, of course, but the scripting should be relatively easy, eh?

Until they tweak the HTML on their respective sites ever-so-slightly, causing your carefully-crafted regular expressions and such to fail miserably .

Yes, I speak from (all too) much experience on the subject.

Huh?

Am I missing something here? I went to the gamblersspace link website.

And all it appeared to have was the "odds and lines" for the various sports
Not the updated sports scores.

Google

You're right it is not accessable from their home page but if you click on the link that shows up in google, you go right to this page.

just to be more direct

If you click on the last link (SCORES) you get this.... Hope this helps.
Not sure if that was what you were looking for. If not, go back to Googling and I bet you'll find a live link.
