The best (ok I am a bit biased) option is to go with the following option:

http://www.weather-display.com/index.php

It's written by a Kiwi (Brian Hamilton), and there are links on that page for supported weather stations. He also does a mac version.

The website you mention is the support site for weather display but other stuff does get discussed, so you could post there if you needed more info on that software.

You might also want to check out www.nzweather.net - there are a heap of us online, and more than happy to help out

Cheers

Ok - I'm not a mac user, but the way it works on a PC is that you just configure up a port for the software to use. I have an oregon scientific station plugged into the serial port on my PC. I would assume you would do the same for a Mac.

Brian has a mac that he has tested a number of stations on with that software. OS also make a WMR100 and WMR200 model which appear to work on Macs, but they may be difficult to get in NZ.

I'd say your best bet is to email brian and ask him - infoATweather-display.com

Cheers
Andrew

would need USB over serial port as not supported on a Mac.
