Morning!

I was wondering if it was possible to use an image URL as the background image for the weather background. Our town has a website that refreshes an image every 10 seconds (same url) with the current view outside. I thought that would be cool to have on my weather background. The image doesn't have to change, I would just like to use the URL of the image to show when I launch XBMC instead of an image from the folder. Thoughts?


Thanks in advance all!

I did some searching and figured out to edit the home screen. In case anyone is interested, just replace the

<icon>special://skin/backgrounds/weather.jpg</icon>

with

<icon>IMAGE URL</icon>

Very cool
