    Hi all,

    I've got MP1.2.3 and Avalon 1.1 - I'm trying to get homescreen weather. I've installed WorldWeather and disabled Infoservice and but I have no weather and just the #infoservice.weather next to the clock on the homescreen.



    Can someone help? I'm quite certain it's just something noob I'm doing.

    Fixed it. Went into the ProgData Avalon skins folder and renamed the ##.worldweather.xml's to the normal ones.

    I'm having the same problem. Not sure how you've fixed it. What do you mean by 'normal' ones? Can you be more specific? Thanx!

    Go to C:\ProgramData\Team MediaPortal\MediaPortal\skin\Avalon

    Rename the BasicHome.weather.worldweather.xml file to BasicHome.weather.xml - I also kept a backup of the old file

    Rename the common.time.worldweather.xml file to common.time.xml - again, I also kept a backup of the old file

    Restart MediaPortal
