Weather for SageTV and Gemstone

I have completed the updates to the weather systems for Gemstone and the Default STV. The plugins should be available soon in the application.

  • Default STV updated and Pull Request created so future versions will have the new weather
  • Gemstone plugin version updated so users can update the plugin and use the new weather
  • NEW SageTV7 Full UI Package plugin created so users can install and switch to this updated Full UI STV to take advantage of the weather updates without a full SageTV install. Go to All Available Plugins, Full UI tab and select the SageTV7 package when available. After the install you will need to go to detailed setup, advanced, and Set Full UI package and select the SageTV7_FullUIPackage STV.

Preparation steps for this release:
  • Sign up at
  • Create a file in the root SageTV folder called with only 1 line in it "key=userkey"
  • no quotes in the line and replace userkey with the one you get when signing up
  • without a user key Open Weather will not update nor allow locations to be added

The new release has:
  • Support to have multiple weather locations and switch between them
  • Moon phase icons and info
  • Precip info including rain and snow accumulations and probabilities
  • Ability to select from a number of weather icon packages
  • All the weather fields available from OpenWeather including UVIndex
  • Search for locations by Name, Zip or Postal Code
  • 8 day forecast included
  • Note: OWM implements radar maps very differently than WeatherUndergrond so this has currently been removed from the default STV. If there is enough interest I may look into a weather maps implementation from OWM.
  • Note: although the UI's are very different between Gemstone and the default STV, they now share the same backend to make it simpler to support longer term if more changes are required. They also use the same settings file so your weather settings stay if you move from the Default STV to Gemstone or visa versa.

Please post any questions or issues in this forum and I will respond as I can.
