The weather/stock/news parts would load from the HTC hub app, but I could never get the local temps to show on either the Start screen or on the Lock Screen. Uninstalled/installed app several times.
Thinking it might be a conflict with another app or too many apps installed or running (other posts have suggested possible load(?) limits in OS), I uninstalled all my d/l apps back to basic out-of-the-box condition. No joy.
Finally bit the bullet and went into Verizon where tech-guy suggested a hard re-set which is what I was prepared for. So I had backed up all my music/pics etc to hard drive at home. Previously had Systems/'Backup' saving my 'app list +settings', 'text messages', 'photos' and had the Verizon app Systems/'Backup Assistant Plus' sync 'Contacts'. And I made a list of the Store apps I had d/l for future re-d/l ref.
Verizon tech guy said he thought the HTC hub apps might be different versions and to do a hard reset. So hard reset it is. Then restored the 'Contacts' and 'Text messages' but NOT the app list(and apps)..b/c that would just reload the Windows Store app and the weather app problem. So a clean install of the OEM HTC Hub app was installed in the hard reset.
My 'Contacts', 'Text messages' were reloaded successfully from Backup option during re-set. I did have to manually transfer my music and pics from my hard drive (no big deal) and I did have to re-d/l my selected apps from the Windows App Store (good thing I made a list). A bit of time but still not a huge deal. And I did have to re-add email accounts....5 more minutes.
All is well now with joy to the world and weather on my Start and Lock Screens.
Hope this is helpful.
