im gonna test the same feed and see what happens

EDIT: i added some log info and kept an eye on it... the weather gets updated fine... my internet usage isnt tho... there must be a small bug somewhere....
I will be home in a couple of hours and I will check the logs files then.

Later...

I only seem to be able to get two lines of text / items so far... items 2 and 3 always display "Data not found"

:confused:

Here's a blurb from my cc2_rss.ini

My feed is:

item00_section="title"

item02_id=1853698790

The thing I notice right away is you need quotes. It sure would be nice to have th GUI so the CC2 does the formatting for you...:(

Yep the quotes fixed it. Thanks! Threw me off when the first two lines worked. :D

The GUI doing all the work and formatting for you... will take away the fun of tinkering! ;)

Tinker, yes! The tedious method of adding/changing screens gets quite tedious, however, with the button/events bug.

I think that I would be very happy the way it is, if not for adding a screen, restart, edit, restart, etc.

Last night, I inadverently blew away my saved cc2_service.ini file. Of course, I had just added a screen. Actually, I think it was your CC2 gif screen!:p

It took my a half hour to refigure all my events!:mad: I think I will make a couple of back-up copies from now on!:D

I backup my ini sets every once and a while and also cut sections out of my ini's and save with little descriptive filenames. It helps when I blow things up fiddling around. :)

hey guys..
i updated again... read the top post for details...
Had to stare at your description for a while for it to sink in what these new features do and how to use them. But now it has "clicked". These will alow us to target more specific areas on almost any page! I think I'm wasting it's potential just looking at xml weather feeds! I'll have to look around and see what other neat things I can use it to display.

I agree... kewl

You know, if you guys would stop updating everything, I might just be able to debug this stuff.;)
