I'm more than happy for you to take the reins on iPiMP. You'll all have noted I have not updated this in 18months, this is due to changes in personal circumstance and changes in technology (I'm a Windows Phone user now).
@RNDThoughts - I'm happy to answer any questions you may have with the...
e.g. I have this in one of my plugins.
private void SetPositionY(GUIControl control, Int32 currentY, Int32 adjustY)
control.SetPosition(control.XPosition, currentY - adjustY);
The BBC have updated their weather site since this plugin was written which means that the plugin doesn't always reflect the current BBC site content. I'm in th eprocess of updating the plugin to work with the new site, expect an update in a few weeks.
This plugin extends the TV Server configuration only, you will not see any new menu items in your MediaPortal client with it.
It simply presents a list of Radio Webstreams and imports selected ones as new Radio channels on your TV Server.
I've uploaded v0.4.1.58 which should fix the InfoService day/night images. There's no fancy pants longitude/latitude sunrise/sunset calculations - just set the hour to start/end daylight in the config. :D
Look for the update in MPEI.
The plugin already does this (or attempts to) based on a hardcoded time of 8pm I think. I'm in the process of updating to accommodate the changes made by the BBC to their weather site (and hopefully before they switch their old stuff off) so will look to improve this feature. Hopefully there...
You can revert a couple of Avalon skin files to restore the weather on the home screens. See here.
I'll look at setting the World Weather properties as well as InfoService.
What we really need is a generic set of weather properties which all weather plugins can set, then the skinners could...
I posted the BBC Weather Avalon files in the Avalon forum, unfortunately it looks like this was too late to get into the 1.0 release.
Get the file here. Unzip it into your Avalon skin folder.
If you install the BBC Weather plugin silently through the Extensions plugin then the optional Avalon...
BBC Weather plugin files.
Some of the Avalon specific images are rough and could do with the skin author redoing them, also if this can be included with the skin install I could remove it from the plugin installer.
Avalon 22.214.171.124 moved from the Infoservice plugin provided...
The plugin uses the BBC URL BBC Weather | Portsmouth to get the data (348 = Portsmouth) if you follow that link you'll see that the weather summary is N/A on this. You'll need to contact the BBC to ask why.
For my location BBC Weather | Skipton you'll see that the weather summary is completed...
Well the logs did supply a pointer. I'm not sure of the root cause yet but it is because you live in Portsmouth. I updated my setup to this location and can recreate it. Now because I'm a helpful chap I have ran some other tests and found if you move to Bournemouth or further west or to...
Yes - I did make this UK specific initially. I am aware that international cities are available on the BBC weather site, the forecasts available are different though so the plugin would have to handle that. I shall have a look at this when I've finished the other ongoing work.
Couldn't you just move?
Seriously - I'll check...... ZOINK! The BBC have changed their BBC Weather layout! When did that happen? Now I need to consider updating this plugin to mirror this look/feel.
Hopefully fixed in the next version.
I'll see what I can do - there's some specific button...
I provide the Default & DefaultWide skin files as required as plugin developer. I also provide Avalon and BlackGlass skin files because I use them. Any other skin files need to come from the skin developers.
No problem adding US stations. Either you can do it following the instructions on the wiki or I can, all that's needed is a site or list of stations with their name and URLs and optionally sub-location and genre. Do you know of such a list?
All the European data came from a single site which I...
Sorry it's taken so long, my main dev machine is in storage at the mo - so I've had to setup a spare laptop.
I have uploaded an updated version - can someone give it a try? I'm having trouble with the installer dependency checks. :S
