Some users may like the idea of having their local weather displayed on the Media Center’s home screen. So we put this article together to give you the step by step instructions. IMPORTANT – DO NOT TINKER AROUND WITH ANY OF THE OTHER SETTINGS ON ANY OF THE SCREENS SHOWN IN THIS TUTORIAL!!! THIS WILL MESS UP YOUR MEDIA CENTER AND YOU WILL HAVE TO DO A FRESH INSTALL TO GET IT BACK!!! WE CANNOT STRESS THIS ENOUGH!!!  THESE INSTRUCTIONS WERE CREATED FOR THE NEW MEDIA CENTER. THEY WILL NOT WORK WITH ANY OLD VERSIONS OF KODI OR FTMC. IF YOU HAVE NOT UPDATED TO THE NEW MEDIA CENTER (CLICK HERE) THE WEATHER ADDON IS FROM A THIRD PARTY DEVELOPER WHO WE HAVE NO AFFILIATION WITH. WE HAVE NO CONTROL OVER THIS ADDON OR IF IT WILL CONTINUE TO WORK. WE ARE JUST PROVIDING THIS AS AN OPTION. Now that we have the scary warnings out of the way, let’s get started In the Media Center scroll over to System, press the down button and then the right button to get to Skin Settings. Click on it.   You will be brought to this screen. Press the right directional button once. The down arrow next to Global skin options will turn black. Click on it once.   You will now see this screen. Click the down button on your remote until Home top left info area is highlighted.   Click Home top left info area twice. It will now say Weather.   Click the Back button on your remote once. System will be highlighted. Press the down button once and the left button to highlight Settings.

It will install automatically.   Click down to Settings and click on it.   Click down to Location 1 and click on it. (Only Location 1 works. If you enter a location into any other section it will not work. Multiple locations do not work either.)   A pop up screen will appear. Use your remote to type in the city that you live in. Highlight the Done button and click on it.   You may or may not see multiple listings depending on your city’s name. Highlight the correct location and click on it.   Click down to the OK button and click on it.   Press the back button on your remote until you reach the Media Center home screen.
