    Announce: College Hockey Scores plugin for SuperDateTime

    Any US college hockey fans out there?

    This plugin displays NCAA Division I college hockey scores via the SuperDateTime plugin. You can select your teams from the College Hockey Scores settings page.

    Unfortunately the website (ESPN) doesn't update the scores very often during the games and sometimes not at all. So then this basically gives you a heads up that there is a game that day and it will give you the final score right after. Sometimes you will get updates during the games though.

    I'm running SC 7.2.1 on XP.

    Let me know if you have any problems. Go St. Cloud State!

    The latest version of this plugin can be manually downloaded here:
    http://code.google.com/p/mdmplugins/downloads/list

    Or via the Extension Downloader in SC 7.3 and higher with this URL:
    http://mdmplugins.googlecode.com/svn/trunk/repo.xml

    Hi Mike,

    I'm not at all interested in College Hockey, but very much interested in your plugin :-)

    I would like to use this as a basis for a plugin idea that I'm developing, getting traffic info onto my Boom.
    Now, I have SqueezeCenter 7.2.1 and SuperDateTime 5.8.1 running (both on ReadyNAS NV and Windows XP for testing).
    I've also installed your plugin, which seems to get picked up nicely by SqueezeCenter.
    However, I see no trace of your plugin in SuperDateTime, that is I don't see where I can set any option that allows me to show anything from your plugin.

    Am I missing something?

    Thanks.

    My plugin is separate from the SuperDateTime plugin but it calls the API of the SDT plugin. Greg Brown was nice enough to create an API so others can display other information. If you search for API in the SuperDateTime thread you should see some information there.

    You should see College Hockey Scores in the Settings page in the web UI for SqueezeCenter. It doesn't share a settings page with SDT.

    It seems like someone has written a traffic plugin before but I don't remember where I saw it. Maybe not for your area though.

    Have fun!

    In fact, Greg himself wrote a Chicago traffic plugin that I would recommend getting a hold of.

    Hi Mike,

    It works as you described, but *where* am I going to see any output from your plugin? I was under the impression that your plugin registered itself with SDT and therefore would be visible somewhere in the SDT space.

    Another, unrelated question: I can't seem to get SDT to adhere to the Date and Time setting in Player Settings. The Date and Time screensaver f.e. does show me a 24H clock, while SDT insists on showing AM/PM. Any hints there?


    Thanks.

    You will only see something on days where there are hockey games. If you select Connecticut or Sacred Heart from the list of teams then you should see something in a few minutes. That is the only hockey game today.

    If you are displaying other sports scores or stock quotes with SDT then these just show up after those.

    Thanks, that worked! I'm off tweaking your code...

    Thanks again.

    I've noticed a bug in my code that I'll try to fix this weekend. It has to do with the Minnesota teams all being renamed to the Gophers. I'll post a new version when I have this fixed. The fix is to change the string ^Minnesota to ^Minnesota$ near the bottom of the plugin.pm file.

    Good times.

    Here is the fixed version if you noticed something strange with Minnesota team names.

    The latest version of this plugin can be manually downloaded here:

    I really need to clean up the website and make the API more visible with cleaner documentation. I can't even remember how it all worked. I also recently added an option to show long text via the API, similar to how the automatic long weather forecasts are displayed.
