    I can help explain the basic fundamentals; first, you need to know Javascript, particularly how to code using KONtx which is the framework Yahoo makes available to develop the ConnectedTV widgets. Secondly, KONtx scripts are written to get and consume the XML file that is used for the RSS web feed. The widget script takes the data out of the XML file and uses it somehow with the widget but how is up to the widget developer and AFIK consuming RSS Web feeds using WIdgets is read only.
