Hello,

I know this thread is quite old but heres hoping that some one can help me. I have the 0019 lib and am looking to add the RSS feeds. I have got the feds into HS, for the moment, the headline is attached to a variable device q10. This is subscribed to the mlshs plugin. My problem is how to get this value displayed in ML. I havr selected a taxt and assign it the {{q10}} but I am not seeing any data. Can anybody pls advise??

I think you want to put {{mlhsplugin_q10}} in the text label. Make sure the "hide value" checkbox is not checked.

Use the Text.sizable box and use a label something like this:
{{mlcallerid_date}}~125~30

Those network logos don't look familiar. Are those from Cinemar?

CNN Breaking News Server Script

Postby tmcgowan » Sun Jul 27, 2014 3:38 pm

I'm curious if anyone has developed a CNN Breaking News Script for ML like what was developed for HomeSeer? I'm trying to get as many of my HS Events/Scripts converted to ML, but this one's pretty complex.

Thanks,

Todd

What exactly does the CNN Breaking News script do?

The script goes out to the CNN website every 2 or 3 minutes (user defined) and scrapes the headline section of the page. When CNN has a Breaking News Event, it drops the text of the headline into a variable which can be displayed on a page and/or spoken over the home's speakers. They're pretty good about using the Breaking News Event sparingly. Just for big ticket news events which might happen 4 or 5 times a week. Of course, there's always an exception. It's been a pretty busy week on world events so we had probably close to a dozen notifications/announcements.

Maybe I can roll that into the RSS app.

That would be great! The functionality has a very high FAF!
