    Weather Applets

    I have 2 SB radios and both use weather-based screensavers.

    As of this AM, neither is displaying current weather info. LMS is running. Radios working normally otherwise.

    Is there a server down somewhere or should I examine things at my end?

    Edit: Stopped/restarted LMS; now working OK.

    I tried it for a week ago but didnĺt get it to work.

    So Iĺm following this with interest.

    Many of the weather plugins got their data from weatherunderground.com. WU announced some time ago that they were stopping their free data service. Maybe it finally caught up with you; for me it happened some time ago.

    You can still get weather info via the SuperDateTime plugin:

    "SuperDateTime Screensaver" should be available on the Plugins tab of LMS under "3rd party plugins". You'll need to do some configuration once installed. Post back here for help.

    Thanks. It was a problem here. Not sure why I had to stop/start LMS, but that "fixed" it.

    I had already made the switch away from WU.

    ToddeSwe: Besides SDT, I think you also need Custom Clock Helper.
