Change the SYNIDs directory and SYNIDs media pane to a more generic non-SYN value

Registered by Ken McLean on 2008-02-08

The SYNIDs directory, SYNIDs media pane, and all references in the code to "SYNIDs" should be changed to to a more generic non-SYN designation. The reason behind this is future releases to the rest of the community should be presented with code that's not unneccessarily "branded" as SYN. A generic term needs to be proposed and approved.

UPDATE: We've gone with StationMedia

Other options include:
* StationIDs (implies radio station though)
* DefaultMedia
* GenericMedia
* Media

other suggestions?

I think we can safely assume that this will be run in a radio station. Otherwise we're competing against every other player out there, which is not what we're about.

That being said, tho. Each panel operates independently and transparently. As far as the playlist is concerned, it just returns it to the panel it came from, so theoretically you could add/remove any panel you like. The only thing that hasn't been catered for is doing this at run time.
