Weather Component
« on: June 03, 2009, 09:05:17 AM »
I am having some problems with the weather component. I am getting N/A for everything, this is happening within the studio, airplayer and webplayer. I have tried changing the zip and nothing happens.

NOA (National Oceanic and Atmospheric) Weather service is down.
We have contacted them and waiting on a reply.

in that case, the national weather site must be down alot.
It 'worked' on and off yesterday, and this morning is down.

i wonder if the control could just show question marks '?'
when its unavailable.

Yes, in the past week (6-17-09) the NOA has LOTS of downtime.
I am not sure why, we tried contacting them with no luck. The service seems to be up and down.

The GOOD NEWS:
Our release 1.5 will Cache all RSS XML (Weather, news).
So, if a service goes down, you will get the last good know result. So, you will not feel (see) small interruptions in RSS feeds.

If you want  a private build to test for 1.5, please email me and I will get you a test release.
