RSS as a TV channel?

The use of RSS feeds as TV channels in democracy player really isent working as the just isent anufe content on any one RSS feed to have any connection to the look and feel of a traditional TV channel. The use of “one click installs” provides a much better metaphor for the look and feel of traditional TV. One install will bring in 5-10 RSS feeds on the subject of the “channel” including a feed that provides the look and feel of traditional TV that is the in-betweens logos and coming next week teasers etc.

We hope to be producing a custom skin for Democracy player that will make this happen. But the use of a single RSS feed terminology throughout the app is a bit of an obstical to creating a co-hirent look and feel. Anyone any ideas how to change this? Please post comments (:
