Weather fix & data update

The free weather api provided by Yahoo was retired in Febuary & turned off on June 1,2021. That is why everyone is getting the 0 display. As far as I can determine our best option is to fix the darksky integration to use openweathermap.org instead. They offer instructions on their website for this very instance. It would mean getting a free api license similar to what we did with darksky.

https://openweathermap.org/darksky-openweather#match

I am not a coder or I would do the fix myself. I hope someone that can do so will see this.

I am not ready to give up on Sagetv yet!

This also may require different tweaks depending on the UI. I use Gemstone and I think it has separate coding for weather.

I figured it wouldn't be that simple. I am just hoping the respective codes can be reconfigured for replacement api.

Is there a way I can disable the weather feature in Gemstone until there is a solution? Gemstone trying to get darksky information is severely slowing down startup and menu navigation. Once I change to yahoo weather in the widget everything is fine although the weather info is incorrect. The widget keeps reverting back to darksky on a sagetv service restart.

Any more thoughts on this? Is there a way to disable it or get darksky to work?
It's been so long I forgot how everything works!!!

Changing the weather site to Yahoo gives me 0 as the temperature and thunderstorms but at least it doesn't cause slowness.

You can go into the Widget Manager and turn off the Weather Widget. You can also turn off Weather backgrounds, which I have done, but I still have a weather background. Maybe I need to go into the main Settings menu to turn on another background set.

I think I have turned everything off, but I still see a weather icon and temperature in the top bar of my menu.
