I don't *think* anyone is talking about removing any of the existing web interfaces, just *adding* a new one using more modern technologies that can be utilized by those devices that support them like iOS and Android tablets/phones and of course PCs.
I second this. Monte, no need to get worried, nobody plans to remove the ia5 interface or to otherwise break existing functionality.
I suppose I should have phrased my message a little differently. I wouldn't have thought that anyone would be suggesting removing the ia5 interface.. At least I would hope not. :-)
I understand that we can't maintain backwards compatibility all the way to stone tablets and abacuses. :-) And that eventually these devices which have served so well for so many years will, alas; have to go the way of the dodo bird. I just wanted to interject a request to anyone who wants to start writing a new interface; and who may not even know why the ia5 interface and graphics set were created in the first place, to just please keep that in mind when designing/testing. :-)
For reference, in case there's someone on the list who hasn't seen the MrAudrey code; Pete's web page for it is:
No idea if he's still on the mh list or not, so just making sure his work gets referenced for history..

I'm all for updates and improvements... :-)
As a user (and not really a developer), my one request is that web interface enhancements/improvements/modifications try and maintain compatibility with the 3com Audrey appliances and the MrAudrey image that Pete Flaherty wrote to flash onto the Audrey devices.
I rarely interface with my mh system for daily use other than through one of the Audrey touch screen devices that are scattered through my house; and I have become very accustomed to the push audio from my mh box to the audrey devices for announcements and the "grandfather clock".
I know there has been work on making apps for various Android tablet devices to try and replace the audrey devices; but I can't afford to buy new tablets to have touch screen and remote speakers for the house at the moment... So, please; if possible....don't break the audrey functionality when doing updates/improvements to the mh web interface. :-)
