[WIP] HTPC-Manager Beta, Manage XBMC, Sabnzbd, SickBeard with one app
I like the idea of an HTPC manager, but I tried this one, and don't see a value proposition. First, I found the installation documentation almost completely absent, and once I launched the app, the first page provided a banner and white space. But, I persevered and added sonarr, sabnzbdplus, and plex as servers (deluge, my torrent downloader, is not supported). Then all my additions disappeared, nothing showing. Try again. This time, I found an 'enable' widget on the top of the screen, and I got one server to show, same thing for the other two.

Now I found that I had a single black and white line on the page banner with my 3 servers listed. Great!

I tried each one and found that each was just a minor subset of the same information I get on the web gui of each server. The one for sonarr is so limited that I just don't see the point of using this. I checked both sabnzbdplus and plex, and found similar results. So I removed the HTPCManager code from my file system.

I find it much more useful to use 4 separate web pages (sonarr, sabnzbdplus, deluge, and plex).

I don't mean to be negative, just feedback of what I learned.
