    Movie Listings... Coming to an RR near you!

    Thanks to the guidance of marchello2000 over in the streetdeck forums i'm on the verge of creating an official rr plugin for movie times. The plugin will take a zip code (either manually entered or from my "CURRENTZIP" label) and a user definable radius and find the nearest movie theatres and showtimes. This is one thing i've been trying to implement FOREVER as i feel its needed. the plugin will of course require internet connection, though i dont know at this point if it will require an active connection or if you will be able to simply download the data for retrieval at a later point. Thats all for now!

    i figure since the information needed to find these things on the internet is built into rr.. why should there be an end . All off the framework (labels, indicators, lists) are done.. now to get crackin on the requesting and parsing of the information. This is my first "official" plugin using the extension interface so i'm learning as i go here. In the mean time if any VB gurus wanna drop some knowledge about getting vb6 to communicate with soap enabled web services by all means do so

    Sonic, you seem to have everything down but I just wanted to bring your attention to this plugin I'm using for my SageTV (Home Theatre PC) setup. It actually does exactly what you're doing minus the distance/radius element. I figure at least you can check out the source of all the information to see if it suits your needs.

    Downloadable would be awesome as some of us *raises hand* don't have internet in the car.

    Wow, I was just about to ask a question if there was such a plugin yet. Freeway does this currently and uses RR skin coding, possibly it would be a good idea to check this out as well.
