Hi,

I have the forecast plugin, it's working if I search for a city. I tried
to save my city (Amsterdam, Netherlands) into the Weather.lst file.
I'm not sure about the format, I used:

Amsterdam, Netherlands: NLXX0002

But then, I don't get any weather. Should it be another format?

Thanks,
Chris

Press REC or ADD to save. you shouldnt have to edit the file manually.

However, the above is the correct information, but you might have to be careful
with dos/unix line endings or possibly a final carriage return. Try deleting
all extra lines, if you have any, and delete the final carriage return. Try it
then. Then try adding just a single carriage return, and try again. I can't
recall which was correct at this point. Ideally, just press ADD and let the
plugin do the work.

So easy! Wonderful.
