This plugin presents BBC Weather forecast data in a format similar to the BBC Weather website. There are currently four forecast views available, the 5 day forecast (default), the 24 hour forecast, monthly outlook and the forecast maps. Current observations are shown on all 4 screens.
The configuration is as simple as the BBC Weather website, enter a UK postcode or town and select from the possible locations returned.
The plugin only displays a single UK location, the plugin will be developed over time to allow multiple locations supported.
The plugin makes use of the same BBC APIs and web links used to build the localised BBC weather websites so what you see in MediaPortal should match exactly what is displayed on the web.
Two suggestions after instaling plugin:
1/ Does not install option onto '5 Icons' start screen, only onto scrolling one. (I use the former, as easier for 'non-technical' family members. Blue wide)
2/ Font showing 'timeslot' on image for weather maps shouild be larger, as difficut to read on 'large screen TV'. Similar on scrolling forecast, but less so.
Otherwise very good, thanks
