RSS script help / SimplePie

Hello, I need some help adding extra functionality / features to a RSS script that is already functional. I have example of it running here - [url removed, login to view] Basically I input the RSS feeds and it outputs the articles from newest to oldest.

The script solely uses SimplePie. I'm using the latest version that runs on Linux. If you know nothing of this software, maybe u should download it / install it first before bidding....to familiarize yourself - [url removed, login to view] (the big blue button)

My problems ?

As you can see at the bottom of [url removed, login to view] where it says "showing 1 - 10 out of 78" , the feeds only store the articles that it pulls in initially....nothing is ever accumulated.

this means it gets cut off at 78 total articles, and then the new articles overwrite the old articles. I WANT it to store till 1,000. (or whatever number I specify) I want mine : "showing 1 - 10 out of 1000" But how to do this ? Does SimplePie support this ? If not, I need someone to help create something to support this. SimplePie by default doesn't need MySql....but i'm wondering if I want it to store till 1,000 will it need a database of some sort ?

customizing any of these options makes no difference :

// Set our paging values

$start = (isset($_GET['start']) && !empty($_GET['start'])) ? $_GET['start'] : 0; // Where do we start?

$length = (isset($_GET['length']) && !empty($_GET['length'])) ? $_GET['length'] : 10; // How many per page?

$max = $feed->get_item_quantity(); // Where do we end?

also, #2 I'd like to do this as well :

I would like to add a banner of my own after the first 5 items / articles of each feed page. I need a custom little script for that. For instance , if there's 10 headlines per page....I would need to put a banner after the 5th headline on that page.

......So that's all that I need fixing... I really don't want to try other RSS scripts, because this one is almost perfectly what I need...I just need these 2 things fixed. That's it....and i'll be happy forever.

Specifying

$feed->set_cache_duration(800);

tells the feeds to get a new cache every 800 seconds.

but this only changes the cache of the initial draw from the feed....this does NOTHING to help accumulate the feed article pages to the number I want. ( 1 - 1000 )
