The issue I run into is that I don't alway know when one of my frontends is watching a recorded program. I know I can get the status by using the Frontend status API:
but it sure would be nice to see all of it in a nice table format.

What I would envision is a simple table showing the status of each frontend, similar to the Encoder status page, something like:

Frontend Status
Frontend: "mbe" is "idle"
Frontend: "mbr_sbe" is "playing" "Lost"
Frontend: "gbr_sbe" is "paused" "playing" "Wipeout"
Frontend: "mediaroom_sbe" is "idle"

supplemental-web: Add menu item for frontend status.
The page takes a bit to load because it queries the frontends in real time, every time.
We need to add a please wait screen or some other dialog box in the future.

Also removed remyth from the menu because it's a dead product.

Menu item for frontend status is under utilities.

Table will only display frontends detected via upnp. That means the frontend must be powered on and accepting connections.
