I did some modification to the script. Now weather information is shows up in standby mode and can also be activated when the soundbridge is running. Just press the MENU (small house) three times. Go back to normal function by pressing MENU again, or EXIT or POWER.
With UP and DOWN you can select the weather display mode from: (1) just today (2) today and tomorrow (3) only time.
There is also a new download link, as the other was often blocked. Here is the brandnew Tools4Roku homepage with the download:
Also I figured out how to start the script at boot time in my uNSLUng server. I created a new file called "S80rokuweather" in the "/etc/opt/init.d" folder. The file contains the line
perl /mypathtoroku/t4roku.pl &
(Edit "mypathtoroku" to the location on your server!). Than I made this file executable by entering
chmod 711 /etc/opt/init.d/S80rokuweather
That's it. The Slug will start all files in thois folder at boot time. So as long as the Slug runs, your SB will turn into a weather display
I've one problem where I need your help. If the network connection gets lost or the SLUG is shut down, the roku display freezes during weather display. So I need some save KILLing (during shutdown and reboot) for the perl srcipt at least.
Any comments or bug reports are welcome.
