Nice work, where did you get the api from? The reason the extra days won't show is because of the way the skin/program is written. Plugins/addons will show the extra days, default weather is built in with the 5 day. It's in the MyWeather.xml. For x4x the weather works without an addon, for kodi it first has to install the stock addon before weather works (it doesn't support weather.com anymore afaik). Code will have to be changed in the skin or the source file to show the extra days...

I've copied the data api from cpp source pasted in browser, saw that it relinks to a new location pasted it in google and found a python module which had this url.
I also fixed the data url to use the proper one.

Weather now works fine in XBMX 3.5.3. I have to reinstall 3.5.3 though b/c I think a plugin messed up my installation. I don't have the option to add sources for any of the subcategories (Apps, Games, Emulators) under Programs. It just shows a blank box and I can't do anything with it.

Don't go directly to the sub categories. Go to "Programs" first and you can add sources (match the names with Apps/Games etc) and then those shortcuts will work.

Also for problems it's best to open a new thread, rather than commenting on an unrelated topic saying something works and then reporting an issue.

See http://www.xbmc4xbox.org.uk/forum/viewt ... 95&p=31142 for another explanation of the solution.
