New UI for 200er Series, same as A-300 UI?!
Hi all,

as you all noticed we have announced the A-300 http://www.networkedmediatank.com/showth...?tid=55384 which shows a new UI which is fully flash based, we are currently discussing to also bring it for 200er series, but we have to be carefully about this,

1.) it won't run that fast as on A-300 but it should still run faster then current UI on 200er series

2.) 200er series UI is html based some heard about gaya, the A-300 runs a flash based UI and there is no gaya anymore, this would mean all community projects which use html now, will stop working if we switch, that means as example all HTML Skins from Yamj won't work, so you will only be able to use Eversion with there Skins, all other Apps or Jukeboxes which use HTML won't work anymore
For questions on Eversion and how to create a skin please see this thread

3.) you can't use index.htm files to boot directly into your jukebox because there is no browser

4.) If we switch to the new UI we won't maintain old and new ui, so old ui will get dropped, to maintain two different UI is to much which we can't do

So i make this poll now, it is a community decision now, if you say yes then we will be fast to switch to the new UI Wink

Regards,
Werner

I voted against it because it will probably be more difficult for the community to develop applications for the new UI. HTML may be looking less slick, it is far more flexible.

I think you are already working on that for the 200Series. So If we decide no, all work was for nothing ?

Presumably, there will be no easy way to edit then, if html is not available? In that case, I'll vote no as I have customised my a-200 up to the eyeballs, and I can live with the 5 seconds it takes to load up nmj!

Werner, you say that it will be too complicated to maintain 2 different UIs.

to maintain two different UI is to much which we can't do

If you don't switch the 200 series to the new UI, the implication is that it will not be supported.
Can you clarify this please.

Thanks.

RE: New UI for 200er Series, same as A-300 UI?!
If the old html UI is kept does that mean that the newer SDK/libs, that the Flash UI requires, will still come to the 200?

What benefits does the Flash Ui bring? We can see the downsides but what are the upsides?

What about NMJv2, will there be one if people say no to the FlashUI?

as I said all is done, to make the final port to 200er series is not a hard task, the flash api which was the biggest work is the same on both.

By the way, would this only be effecting the A-200, or the C-200 as well?

I've voted no as it would break compatibility with SwissCenter, and would seriously upset many of my users.

I intend to develop a Flash UI for SwissCenter but won't be anytime soon.

200er series = A-200, A-210 and C-200

OMG - most of the YAMJ skins won't work with new UI any more (AEON anybody - best TV shows support ever)?! Exclamation

That's a HUGE NO on my part!

Certainly Smile

You clearly say that it is too complicated for Syabas to maintain 2 UIs and that you will not be doing this.

The question then is this:
If the C-200 UI is NOT changed to the new flash UI (vis this poll), will it no longer be supported in favour of the new x300 UI.
