« on: October 08, 2019, 01:32:47 PM »
Does anyone still have the full package of show themes from the 03-05 Live By It era by Stephen Arnold? I used to have all the CDs and canít seem to locate them. Thank you!

WeatherSTAR Tech Support / Update-Related Issues
« on: November 13, 2013, 06:06:43 PM »
Please use this thread to report specific issues with this weeks IntelliStar and IntelliStar 2 update. This thread is not to be used for speculation, only for reporting bugs.

Known issues (please do not report):

  • Backgrounds: Some viewers were reporting that their background was always a desert and wasn't changing. Known issue, and was supposed to be corrected at some point today or tonight
  • Metro radar: Always showing even when there is no precip in the area. Known bug, no ETA for fix
  • No metro CC/forecast maps: Not currently enabled. Unknown when they may return.
  • Severe weather crawl: Crawl no longer has beeps - this is intentional. Also, all crawls are now red no matter if they are a warning, watch or advisory
  • No wx bulletins page: Not appearing SD only - known bug, no ETA for fix
  • DirecTV Clock: This should have been fixed today

Another widespread issue is with the radar products. A lot of reports of cities missing, out of place, or locator dots missing. Example, here is my metro radar:


There are a few issues with it:

1. Cranberry Twp is out of place. It's actually in Butler County, not Allegheny.

2. Wexford is out of place. It's along I-79, not I-76.

3. Penn Hills has no locator dot.

4. Several cities are kind of far from their locator dots (see: Beaver Falls, South Fayette). Though my map isn't as bad as some maps are.

Please also report radar issues like these here. If you STAR info isn't in your profile, please include the following: STAR ID, cable company and city. Screenshots and/videos help.

OCMs & Personalities / Carl Parker Now Dr. Forbes' Right Hand Man
« on: May 05, 2011, 12:38:07 PM »
Carl Park made an interesting announcement today via Facebook:

A bit of news- I'll be off Day Planner through severe season, specializing in severe weather and working as backup and support for Dr. Greg Forbes. Convective meteorology has long been my passion- I welcome the opportunity and will do my best to keep our viewers safe this season!


I think this is a direct result of his awesome performance during the horrific tornado outbreak last week. Congrats to Carl, and I certainly look forward to seeing him alongside Forbes!

On a side note - what does this mean for Cantore? Will we see Cantore, Parker, and Forbes all together?

TWC Today News / Testing out a few things
« on: March 28, 2011, 12:29:12 AM »
Over the next hour or so, I will be testing out a few things that will modify the look of the forum, and might not play well with the custom Weather Center theme. Please don't be alarmed, things will go back to normal soon. Thanks for your patience!

Weatherscan Discussion / Ideas & Suggestions for Weatherscan
« on: February 08, 2011, 10:01:33 PM »
Let's say you could start Weatherscan over from scratch. What would you do different? What would you keep the same? What products do like and don't like? What would you like to see in the future? Note your suggestions below. Please keep them product-related. I'll post my suggestions later on.

Found an interesting read in today's Pittsburgh Post Gazette. Here's a link to the article, and I've attached a clearer image of the new schedule.


General Discussion / Post Your Homepages
« on: November 14, 2010, 02:47:30 PM »
I know we had a topic like this at TWCC, so I'm going to continue it here. What do you use for your homepage?

I use Speed Dial, an extension for Chrome. It allows you to customize a homepage full of site logos.

General Discussion / Election Day Discussion & Coverage
« on: November 01, 2010, 05:32:50 PM »
I know some of you aren't old enough to vote, but may still take an interest in politics. So, if you are eligible to vote, will you tomorrow?

I already did my absentee ballot and returned it. In Pennsylvania, there are a few big races being watched. Governor Rendell is not running for reelection, and it's a pretty close race between (D) Dan Onorato and (R) Tom Corbett, who surprisingly are both from Pittsburgh. Dan Onorato is the current Allegheny County Executive, and Tom Corbett the current Attorney General. The other big race is the (R) Pat Toomey and (D) Joe Sestak, which in my opinion is also too close to call.

What are the big races in your area?

TWC Today News / Profile Modifications
« on: June 19, 2010, 12:33:37 AM »
I have edited the cable provider, channel number, and WxStar ID number area of the profile fields. Everyone needs to go into their profile and edit their entires. Note that for your ID number, you must omit the zeros, as I have put a 5-character limit on the field (i.e. 22438, not 022438). Also, I have provided a list of cable providers to give the area a more uniform look. Should your provider not be listed, please post here and let me know and I will add it.

If you do not receive TWC|HD or Weatherscan, please leave the fields blank, do not enter N/A.

Questions and comments are welcomed.

IntelliStar 2 Discussion / IntelliStar 2
« on: June 18, 2010, 11:31:27 PM »
This area has been created with the upcoming launch of the IntelliStar 2 (the HD STAR) in mind. We have made a separate area for Istar 2 discussion that way the STAR Team can get feedback about the STAR all in one place. Please only create topics about the HD STAR here, and no where else on the forum. Thanks for your cooperation.

Until the unit debuts in beta, new topics will be disabled.

TWC Today News / New TWC Today theme!
« on: June 11, 2010, 01:56:22 AM »
Iím pleased to announce a new, customized  TWC Today theme for the forums!

I found a free theme developed by another guy that I downloaded and customized. You can apply this theme by going to your profile settings > look and layout > change theme, and all the way at the bottom, select use this theme. I am also going to develop a red version for Storm Alert mode. Questions and comments are welcomed.

NOTE: For some reason, all the user badges aren't working at this point. I'm looking into it.
Also, gonna have to work on the logo to make it bigger, but that shouldn't be hard.
