  • Weather Channel XML feed going away

    I saw on Cocoontech that Weather Channel's XML feed is going subscription (at $20/mo).What's going to happen to BLWeather?

    It may be the end then because I do not even use it myself as I use WeatherLobby in MainLobby for my weather.

            If Bob isn't going to support this plugin any longer then you guys may want to check out the new WeatherXML plugin by Jeff Farmer. It should be in the HomeSeer updater as soon as the store is back up from the power outtage.

              I would need to find another source to get the information that is free. I am not going to pay for a weather service to test the plugin because I already own the WeatherLobby plugin for MainLobby that does all my weather for me.

              If someone can find another weather source that provides the same information then let me know
              Cheers,

                Where does WeatherLobby get it's data from, Maybe you can utilize the same data feed?

                  Bob, there's a discussion over on cocoontech about this very thing. There were at least one api, xml feed that were mentioned here.

                    I will have a look and see what can be easily implemented
                    I am off Thursday and Friday this week so I hope I can fix it up by the weekend

                      It looks like the feed was shutdown yesterday evening. There are no errors indicated, but everything is stuck at the same values since about 4pm of 11/16/2011.

                          Hi Bob:

                          I thought I'd pose this question since the plug-in is no longer functioning due to changing weather feeds. I'm wondering if you have decided on a path back to functionality or a path to the trash?

                          I personally hope it can resurrected but I'll understand if it's end of life time. I and I'm sure the other users are wondering which way to go, hold and hope or start looking for something that can replace all the devices that were provided by BLWeather making it extremely easy to integrate into most any UI that was being used.

                            I do plan to change it but I just have not had the time to invest yet.
