Hello everybody.

I am doing a series of videos detailing the creation of a Weather Plugin, as an example of how to use Plugins to add whole house functionality to Orbiter.

The first video can be viewed here: https://vimeo.com/70533158

Hi Thom

Great stuff, thank you.

Would it be possible to link a Davis weather station to lmce?

bushtech,

every device that has an open protocol can be linked to LinuxMCE.

bushtech:
I am pretty sure that the Davis software is not open protocol but the data is readily usable. Quite a couple of programs are available to utilise the data. I use weewx to watch the web interface on any computer on my network which also pushes it to wunderground. My weather station can be seen here : http://www.wunderground.com/weatherstation/WXDailyHistory.asp?ID=INORTHWE6&graphspan=day&month=7&day=18&year=2013

Is it possible to replace the flickr screensaver with this web interface?. Or overlay this over the screensaver? (bushtech dreaming)

tschak909:
You would need to alter Orbiter to do this, as we currently have some dependency on Photo_Screen_Saver whenever there isn't video playing. Also, not too sure you could do this, and have it not look like ass.
