Arrow European Weather Maps in SageMC

In case somebody who uses MC16x9 wants to change the wheater maps into European ones, below the ones I have put in. Just stop SageTV (also service) and update the Sage(client).properties file.

Initial values:

sagemc/wximage_title_1=National Conditions
sagemc/wximage_title_2=Morning Forecast
sagemc/wximage_title_3=Evening Forecast
sagemc/wximage_title_4=Atlantic Surface Analysis
sagemc/wximage_title_5=Precipitation Forecast
sagemc/wximage_title_6=WBIR Forecast
sagemc/wximage_title_7=WBIR Radar
sagemc/wximage_url_1=http://image.weather.com/images/maps/current/curwx_600x405.jpg
sagemc/wximage_url_2=http://image.weather.com/images/maps/forecast/amfcst_600x405.jpg
sagemc/wximage_url_3=http://image.weather.com/images/maps/forecast/pmfcst_600x405.jpg
sagemc/wximage_url_4=http://images.intellicast.com/WeatherImg/CustomGraphic/tgsfc1.gif
sagemc/wximage_url_5=http://image.weather.com/images/maps/forecast/precfcst_600x405.jpg
sagemc/wximage_url_6=http://www.wbir.com/images/weather/fiveday.jpg
sagemc/wximage_url_7=http://wbir.com/images/doppler/tys_radar.jpg

New Values (haven't changed them all yet, looking for better maps - if you find any let me know):

sagemc/wximage_title_1=Europe Satelite
sagemc/wximage_title_2=Europe Temperature Map
sagemc/wximage_title_3=Europe Humidity
sagemc/wximage_title_4=Europe Temperature Map II
sagemc/wximage_title_5=Precipitation Forecast
sagemc/wximage_title_6=WBIR Forecast
sagemc/wximage_title_7=WBIR Radar
sagemc/wximage_url_1=http://image.weather.com/images/sat/europesat_600x405.jpg
sagemc/wximage_url_2=http://icons.wunderground.com/data/640x480/2xeu_st.gif
sagemc/wximage_url_3=http://icons.wunderground.com/data/640x480/2xeu_rh.gif
sagemc/wximage_url_4=http://i.cnn.net/cnn/.element/img/1.0/weather/cnn/europe_highs.jpg
sagemc/wximage_url_5=http://image.weather.com/images/maps/forecast/precfcst_600x405.jpg
sagemc/wximage_url_6=http://www.wbir.com/images/weather/fiveday.jpg
sagemc/wximage_url_7=http://wbir.com/images/doppler/tys_radar.jpg

Yes, if there is interest in this it can be done ...

Btw, I would suggest to post SageMC specific questions in the Customization forum, since I don't visit the international ones that frequently

Depending on the source of the maps, different URL variables may be needed. E.g., the one from the BBC has a YYMMDD12.jpg structure, but another source may have a MMDDYY.jpg structure. If one wants to link today and tomorrow, than it becomes YYMMDD12.jpg and YYMM(DD+1)12, and than you have the end-of-month issue. This may thus become a more complex coding to keep it flexible (but can be done of course).

A quick solution would already be to allow local files as .jpg's to be selected - now it only accepts URL's. Than a user could write a local script (e.g., using HTTPCOPY to download), the script would take care of the specific source naming requirements and would always create a local .jpg with a fixed name that would than be used in SageMC.

As suggested, I'll copy this message also in the customization forum.

Dirk,

That's what one calls QUICK reaction - thanks ! I'll install it as soon as I'm back home (out for 3 days).

The current version does not handle two-digit days/months in the template correctly, a quick fix is available here.
