Screen Saver Weather Time missing weather?

Hi, been using this screensaver forever. All of a sudden the weather information is gone and all there is to see is the time. Anyone know what happened. I checked the settings. Rebooted the system. Thanks?  Jack

I need to look into this. I've noticed it happening at times, but haven't had the chance to take a look. Sometimes it's just one particular reporting station that's offline temporarily. Try changing the ZIP Code to another close by.

Same for me, it only shows the time, no temperature, past 2 days now. Rebooted, tried a different zipcode...

Ok, it looks like weather.gov is finally switching to HTTPS. I've fixed the private version; get it here:
https://my.roku.com/add/CLOCPRI

If you weren't using it before, you'll have to select it from the screensaver settings and go through the "Custom settings" again.

I'll try to update the public (channel store) version, but who knows how long that will take or if it's even possible since I haven't updated it to use the new Roku SDK (shudders).

Thanks Jim, that link worked. Just needed to update the Roku afterwards. It's now 54 degrees outside, with 40% humidity and barometric pressure 30.20" and steady.  Smiley Happy

So happy to have this great informative screen saver back!!  RenoJim, are there any resources that outline the process you used to create this saver?  Id like to try making one that will update a fullscreen version of a satellite view.
