Digital Picture Frame as Auxiliary Status Display?
Hi - I built a Linux htpc and I would like to setup some sort of auxiliary display so I don't have to turn-on the TV to see status information such as:
-music track info
-a message to indicate that the pc is recording video
Naturally, I want something cheap and simple.
I looked at 2 line USB displays etc, and rejected them because they are too small to see.
I was wondering if I can use a digital picture frame to display info via USB? I have never had a digital picture frame. Does anybody know if these frames will accept a picture via USB for immediate display?
As I would only send very infrequent information to the display, I was thinking a picture frame would work well.
Also, if anybody else has any other ideas that are cheap and simple, please let me know.
