Weather and Stocks How-To guide? Not Working from Canada
« on: December 14, 2015, 10:22:34 PM »
Hi, Is there a simple page that lists weather and stock how-to for a Canadian location?

When I try to put in a weather component, the page just lists an empty [tmp] notice.

I can't seem to figure out how to get weather or stocks in the free version.  Is it down or not working for free users? :(

I just noticed on the video tutorial there is an import button and no import button on the studio pro version.

How do I get weather and stocks or is that depreceated?

World Weather is CRAP for Canadian cities. Where the hell do you get your info from??
There are sites that you could integrate with so we can get ACCURATE info like The Weather Network.
For every town or city in Canada, there is another locate somewhere else in the world you apparently pull from.

Where do you pull your info from>??????

Disappointed with the world weather. Yes you are correct and I can confirm that the world weather is far way accurate especially Canadian cities.

Someone will have to do something about this. Using Enterprise version should be worth it if everything is working well.

I am not in Canada so I do not know about the accuracy. It seems fine here in the US. I hope it is anyway. My concern is that for some reason, my Players are showing a black screen when I have it running world weather. The preview works fine though. Not sure what is going on. Other slides work fine.
