Description

The mythweather does not provide current updated data. I observe this behaviour for Berlin, Germany and for some other cities.

Looking detailed at the output of the BBC grabers for location W4096 (Berlin), I receive 19 degree and cloudy every day. The values do not change. It is wrong.

As I can see, the the BBC web page changed the RSS feed interface.

Accordingly, adaptation to the BBC graber is needed.

Update BBC grabber to function with new RSS feeds

I've added a patch that attempts to make the MythWeather? BBC grabber scripts play nice with the redesigned BBC weather website.

The updates include changes to the search routines as well as the weather condition parsing routines. You will need to delete all weather screens and re-add them. This is due to the changes in location IDs.

I don't use this grabber regularly, so I can't say whether or not this patch is stable yet. Please test.

Thanks!

Joe,

thank you for providing the patch.

The grabber works properly now. Search routines as well as the weather condition parsing provide correct output.

Therefore, the status of this ticket can be changed.

Thanks, Blazej

(In [21950]) Fix the BBC weather grabber after changes to the BBC web site and rss feeds.

Note: You will have to delete and re-add any weather screens using the bbc feeds due to changes to the location ids.

Patch by Joe Ripley. Fixes #7024.
