What is vdr-weather?

vdr-weather is a plugin for Klaus Schmidingers Video Disk Recorder (VDR) which displays the current weather conditions for a selected location. It gets the METAR data from ftp://weather.noaa.gov.
Dependent on the information your station provides, the temperature, wind chill, dew point, wind (direction and speed), humidity and air pressure is shown.

Get your station id at http://weather.noaa.gov/.

Localized in english, finnish and german. If you like other languages, feel free to mail your translations.
