In regards to the TWC feed being shown on Weatherscan when Intellistar is out we don't get that. If it's out either it's frozen or the DVR says "Channel Temporarily Unavailable" because no signal is being put out on that channel. (It just rebooted after being frozen for 4 hours and a very explosive call to Cox in which I lost my cool.)

Has anyone noticed how the clouds on the new icon set seem to animate along with the beat of the Weatherscan music? Lol, kinda silly, but I thought I should mention it. :P

I wish Trammell Starks would be played 24/7 just like the old days on WeatherScan  :blushing:

If only they could at LEAST change the playlist on Weatherscan, it isn't that hard to do. Or even just revert back to one of the previous playlists, such as the 2005-2006 one (my favorite).

I concur. Gone are the days of Trammell Starks being played on Weatherscan 24/4. That happened ever since the Weatherscan IntelliStar version 1 first went on the air. May that return someday. :(

As far as its future? Current product? I believe we aren't going to see any radical changes to the overall system for some time to come however NBC/TWC is starting to renew interest in it as evident by the Dish/Weatherscan deal thats supposed to happen. Trammell certainly wont return and if there is any changes to the music I imagine it would be something more modern/rockish/etc to attract wider audiences. Probably its a good thing they aren't interested in changing it

It would be interesting to see if they're developing in WxScan again and going to change the playlist. Since I'm no Weatherscan expert, I think 4 Trammell songs are used on the current playlist lineup, and none of them are from CD One.
I've gone off on a journey to be a moderator at another forum, but this place will forever remain home for me~

Correct, nothing from CD 1, most are from CD 3

Does anybody know if the Intellistar auto-updates the time? Our time on Weatherscan keeps jumping around almost every day. One day it's up to 5 minutes ahead, then behind, sometimes it's right. Just curious.

I noticed this too. Kinda looks good and I understand why they did it.

the new font looks so bloated and the scroll is moving x3 slower, i can't believe it took that long to make one minor change.
