I need the url for realtime.txt  i am trying to get the dials to work in real time using meteotemplate and when setting up the dial block i need to use the url to get the dials to work. I tried http://victoriatexasweather.net/realtime.txt but it does not work. Anyone using meteo and have their dials working what are you using.

Since your site is using Weather-Display, you'll need to upload a custom realtime file via WD.

See: http://wiki.sandaysoft.com/a/SteelSeries_Gauges#Weather_Display_Users for details.

For Cumulus, you need the to have it process realtimegaugesT.txt template and upload realtimegauges.txt

On your Meteotemplate site, you can use /template/plugins/steelSeries/ssMeteotemplate.php as the realtime file for the Steel Series gauges.

Thanks Ken,
I think Jerry was a bit confused, he was talking about the block not plugin and I have his FTP so I just fixed it. He did not provide correct URL for the realtime and also had a typo in one of the settings. All working fine now.
