Very nice. Thank you. All that's missing is some blow-dried weatherman walking around on-screen. :P

Bug report:

Weather Alerts screen appears as follows:

Text is clipped on right of screen. (also, FYI, "Weasher" is misspelled as "Westher" at the top)

Hope this helps...channel is quite neat.

Is that an SD TV? I tested with a box in 4:3 mode, but I don't have an actual 4:3 TV to test on.

Yes, it is.

Apparently I can't spell/type "Weather". Thanks for not pointing either out.

Actually I would prefer the ditsy weather girl waving her arms and mispronouncing all the technical terms as she struggles to read the prepared copy that she clearly does not understand. ;)

On a more serious note: The text on the weather alert is clipped as hykurt showed on my HD 16x9 screen with my Roku in HD mode.

Nice clean channel. Well done.

One bug I see. On the main page left panel. For "Wind:" I have "NNE @ NA" then under that there is a line with the text "mph" (?) which somewhat overlaps with the next line for Humidity

Thanks. The channel is nice and clean and works well.

I'm just wondering, how hard would it be to add a satellite map (animated or static)? That would be a really cool feature if it's practical to do.

Cheers,

Very nicely done.

Would it be possible to have multiple locations. It would be great to be able to pull up information on locations you may be traveling to or where family is located. Also, once you input the zip code to find the city/area, it would be nice if the user could attach a name to it. That would go nicely with the aforementioned ability.

I'm disappointed. I thought this was going to be a channel to predict what channel Nowhereman was going to create next. Weather? Who goes outside anymore? My remote doesn't work from there.

Who is online
