So I switched from Chrome to Safari and got the below warning when attempting upload.

Try doing it locally on the machine, not via cp.mios.com.... Which appears to have bugs...

Everytime the upload says successful, and it prompts I would say in less than a second after pushing go.  I have refreshed the browser before and after I checked the Luup files to see if it "took" each time with no love.  I did what you recommended and tried to upload with direct access to the box.  Still at a loss.

After trying to submit a ticket for the files not uploading, the VERA froze.  I performed a full restore and then regained access with accesses directly.  I submitted the ticket and for sh!ts and giggles attempted to upload luup files and they took.  Go figure right.  Applied the key and now everything is well again in home automation land at my humble abode.  I will leave the ticket active just to see if they come back with anything.  Thanks for the quick responses and hopefully this service stays active for a while.

Great.  Given the symptoms you were experiencing, I'd guess that Vera had filled up the file system.  When this happens, a reboot will fix it... At least until the next time :)

There is a bug in UI4, since fixed in UI5, where log rotation can cause that type of behavior.

Guys,
Thank you for remaking this plugin. It is not essential for me (not until I integrate my yard watering) but it is nice to see it working again.

Great job guys, the google weather stopped working the day I installed it so I'm glad you gave us a replacement. Keep up the good work, it is the dedication from the users in this forum that pushed me into choosing Vera for my home automation.  MiCasaVerda should really do something extra for its contributors that are driving their sales up on your free labor and design work.

I have submitted 3 tickets to MiCasaVerda over 2 weeks ago and still have not received a single response, the only reason I stick with them is because of the user community.

@mcvflorin

I received your private message but the system still won't let me reply. Any other ideas on how I can send you my info? I noticed that in the Tech Support Tab in the section labeled "Existing Trouble Tickets" I still have nothing there, it's like the system is not taking my tickets.

Cheers to all involved in updating this plugin to use Weather Underground.  I had actually been meaning to suggest this, as I find WUND to be much more accurate for my location.  I've installed the updated plugin and all seems to be working as it should be (after I corrected the part where I put my API key in as a location by mistake that is....)

Thanks again,
Dave

@Chris H.,
FYI, your Vera must be logged in to your MIOS account in order for the tickets to show.  Does it show you logged in at the top right corner of the Vera UI (i.e. Welcome [username], Logout)?

FYI:  For me, iVera displays (under the sensors tab):

current weather (parent),
low temperature (child),
humidity (child), but
NOT high temperature (child). 

To be clear, the current weather (parent) display DOES include current conditions, low, high, and humidity.  Can't seem to figure out what's causing low temp and humidity to show but not high temp...

In Square, I can get all four to show.

YMMV.

Hi there !

I've been using the weather plugin for a while now and was actually really happy that we had to switch to WU.
I follow a local weather station trough them (and have been doing so for quite long) and I've been thinking about how to use all their data with my Vera.
One thing I would like to do is to use their UV readings (Solar radiation) to adjust my blinds (which I already control through the vera).

I'm new to this but I tried creating a "UV sensor" for WUIWeather, using "Temperature and Humidity Sensors as a model.
I created a D_UVSensor1.xml, a D_UVSensor1.json, a S_UVSensor1.xml and I modified the I_WUIWeather.xml
I uploaded the 4 files to the Vera, restarted the luup engine and crossed my fingers.

Unsurprisingly, it doesn't work although the weather station provides the info.
Can anyone tell me if I'm going in the right direction ?

Here is the sort of error messages I get in the log file :
Code: [Select]
/tmp/log/cmh$ cat /tmp/log/cmh/LuaUPnP.log | grep WUIWeather
50 10/20/12 16:21:24.587 luup_log:28: WUIWeather: #28 starting up with id  __LEAK__ this:32768 start:221184 to 0x99e000 <0x2c05f680>
50 10/20/12 16:21:26.295 luup_log:28: WUIWeather: fetchWeather returned error=Unable to parse result __LEAK__ this:286720 start:507904 to 0x9e4000 <0x2ce5f680>

Thanks in advance for your help !

Any clues regrading inputting a local weather station. I tried to input the weather station call signs and the plugin freezes. The one I am trying to o is called "Edgehill" "Davenport KFLDAVEN5". Not sure what should go in the box.

You need to enter pws:xxxxxxx, where xxxxxxx is the weather station you want to use.
