PI TimeSpan Web Part to PI Batch connection ?

I want my users to use the 'time fwd and back' scroll buttons of the TimeSpan Web Part to step through the values of a bunch of PI Gauge Web Parts in 1 minute increments. 


This is easy enough to do by setting the start and end of the time span manually and at 1 minute difference BUT the data belongs to different 60 minute long batches. 


So I first want the user to select a batch from a list in the PI BatchTable Web Part and have that automatically set the TimeSpan's start and end time.  BUT the TimeSpan part does not accept incoming connections from other web parts.


Does anyone have any ideas on how to make use of the TimeSpan scroll feature but first passing in a Batch time context?


Another thought was to drive the Gauges from the cursor values on a PI Trend part, but that is also not available.
