Weather mod pohd menu

Weather mod pohd menu

Postby tweakradje » 06 Jun 2013, 02:49

Hi guys,

I have started a new project to display current weather on the main menu of the pohdmenu. It is info from accuweather.
So far I have only managed it to display the current weather. The changed HomeMenu.rss script is attached.

It only displays the weather when I first select another menu item. It gets the local weather city from a xml file
/usr/local/etc/dvdplayer/accuweather/recentcity.xml which is one I put there. You can get one from this url:

http://realtek.accu-weather.com/widget/ ... ?location=<your city name>&metric=1

It would be nice to have it selectable via the keyboard. A 5-day forecast on the main menu would be nice too.

I need help on it.

Anyone interested? Farvoice?

Cheers

Good thinking. Nowadays I'm using iconBIT skin which has a small weather widget and I find it very useful.
Obviously it is great news if we can have weather widgets on other skins too.
Hey, if you find out how to make a 5-day forecast make sure you tell us how so that the iconBIT skin maintainer can implement it too ;).

Would be nice to have only one "weather app" that users can install and see on whatever skin?
My changes are still very premature. I don't think I will ever finish it. I have soo little time.

So if anyone can use this and work it out idea be my guest. Please use this thread.

If you think even bigger you can have all sorts of "home screen apps" like weather, rss ticker, clock, etc.
I know these are not very useful but they can make a dull skin look good :)

Is this the standard Iconbit skin in the mos3 repository? That is where I get the code from. Or is there a thread here with updated HomeMenu.rss version?

Thx

Which Iconbit skin you use then with weather on homescreen? I only know the one with the clock and date.

Eerrr, that the one, I guess.
iconBIT skin in AMP r10 has a new wallpaper (green futuristic city?) but it still has the clock and the IP address and on the top/right corner it show the weather too ;).

Yep.
Go to the accuweather.com website on your computer.
Search for your country and city (ie Lisbon, Portugal).
When the browser is already showing your country and city weather, notice the URL on your browser.
For instance, this is the URL for Portugal/Lisbon http://www.accuweather.com/en/pt/lisbon ... ast/274087 .
See, the code is 274087.
Now open moservices panel in your browser (http://your_player_ip_address).
In the modules section, look for iconmenu module.
Click with mouse over that module and choose settings in the drop-down menu.
A new window with a text config shows up.
Code: Select all
<config>
  <weather>
    <currentcity>cityId:863441</currentcity>   
    <unit>0</unit>
    <language>en</language>

See cityId? That's where you put the code that you found using accuweather.
Save the config with the green checkmark icon.
Reboot your player (not needed but this way updates faster).
