    [script][asp] CNN News Alerts to Audrey (update version 1.2)

    This is an add-on package for CNN Breaking News (News Alerts). It is designed to be launched by the event trigger mechanism of version 2.3. It will send the Breaking News Alert by pushing a page to the Audrey. It will require that you have done the push page hacks to your Audrey. Step by step instructions for Audrey Hacks are here.

    These instructions for installing are also included as a comment in the zip.

    1) install & setup custom_cnn.txt script
    2) copy this script to the homeseer\scripts directory
    3) copy Audrey_CNNAlert.asp and associated files to their own folder in the HomeSeer html folder
    (The above 2 steps can be done by unzipping the zip file in the HomeSeer folder and preserving the paths)
    4) create a new event, manually triggered to launch this script
    4a) select custom_cnn_notify_audrey.txt to run in the "Scripts/Speech" tab
    4b) if you wish to enable debugging, specify custom_cnn_notify_audrey.txt("main","debug") instead of just custom_cnn_notify_audrey.txt
    5) When the script is run it will prompt you for the custom variables that it stores in the INI
    6) create an event, manually triggered to edit ini configuration
    6a) select custom_cnn_notify_audrey.txt("GetIniValues","edit") to run in the "Scripts/Speech" tab
    7) Add event created in step 4 to the addon event trigger list. Do this by running the event created in step 6, running the edit ini event created for custom_cnn.txt, or by directly editing CNNSettings.ini with a text editor (not recommended)

    Note: the zip contains a duplicate of the graphic and sound included in CNN News Alerts via hspi_Message Server.
