I want the channel to have different categories each having it's own link. When the category is selected it will display the RSS news coming from my forum.

Hi,  I know exactly what you are referring to your wanting a breakdown between the category and sub-menus for each area of content.  I had to adopt the older scene graph technology vs. the new methods. Now there are some major benefits that I enjoy the most, DIRECT feed for images built into to the channel as pkg directory vs. server feed.
How that works is really simple. One of the feeds is written in the package as the category and when clicking the sub-menu it activates the XML internal again ON the users BOX and not waiting on server response. This will reduce server load times and costs in bandwidth.  Download and modify for your needs.

See for yourself I have included the example and for those of you wanting the file to use for own abilities I'll include the download link from Onedrive.

But would that work for feeds that sometimes has video's and sometimes they don't?

Yes, because I created my own feeds in the XML. When you download and unzip the download you will see in the XML directory each PKG as it's own individual feed. Each video is a direct link to the host but in the position of the category. This is my Fourth revision. I'm granting full access to my channel code including the source of the host. This way you can see the benefit.

So am I to assume some of the content is not video? Such as Questions and Answers? There are a few ways to get around that. Part of what I do with Biztale is take content and create into a video as a PowerPoint conversion.

link above is download link.
Extract with 7zip. Open directory XML and use editor of choice Notepad++ or Atom.

The primary file is category, each individual file is part of the pkg loading tree. To see the file in action connect to Roku and upload. Good luck.
