    At the risk of opening a can of worms... another project I'm involved in was discussing weather sources and I referred to Dark Sky as it seems to be working well here. And... I was directed to the ToS (https://darksky.net/dev/docs/terms) that mentions not having end-users signing up for their own API account. In my mind, I can see a non-paid product (WeatherXML) and all of us user/contributors as exceptions to this, but... just wondering what thoughts anyone has? I'd like to be convinced that this is good and thus convince the other developers on the other project... LOL

    The new API that you got from WU does not keep the old system working. It is all new. Different URLS, different file format, different file structure. The HSTouch screens are not using WU either. I believe they are using APIXU. Currently, with weatherXML, you have a choice of DarkSky, NOAA, Norway.YR, and a cumulus software created file getting data from a supported weather station.

    Hey Guys,
    so im getting the same error, and my HSTOUCH screens stopped updating..
    I did just make the change to the API for the default weather to work in the default weather HSTOUCH screen...
    did that break this??
    please let me know how to fix it? I have two screens that use the weather Underground weather..
    thanks

    Hate to be that guy, but... it's just an honesty-based system because the icon is pulled locally and not from Dark Sky's with the weather data. I don't need everyone in my family to be constantly reminded that the data is coming from Dark Sky. If the system were to ever change where they track whether or not the the icon image is pulled from their server at the time of the weather data being downloaded, then I would just make it a 1x1 icon on HSTouch.

    I don't consider the Device Management page a display page. It is for management. What I did was add a device for Data Provider and make sure that is included on any HSTouch page and also it is on the weatherXML user pages. Whichever provider you select is which logo shows. NOAA does not require a logo and didn't provide one to display when I asked them for one.

    Note that the term of service are similar to what was imposed by Weather.com. If you download their data then you need to include their approved logo wherever the data is displayed. In mcsSprinklers I included the logo on the status page. The gotcha is that when when the data is put into HS devices then the context is lost and likely the only compliant way to use it is to include in DeviceString so that HS will include the logo on its rendering of the data.

    New API doesn't have a lot of the old API features so it might be some work to replace it. Don't see alerts, hourly, tides or radar anymore and PWS owners only get 5 day forecasts.

    Sorry haven't been paying attention here.
    Is the plugin supporting the new WU API that went into effect yesterday?

    Thanks,
