I was just going to post something about that. That would be sweet, those things are just tiny and powerful!west_aust said:Instead of using a conventional dvd player, im thinking about maybe installing a Mac mini instead, same size, quite cheap (600cdn) and many more functionality than simply a dvd player
still using the Dietz adapter (if i can find where to buy it)
havent thought about screen resolution, indeed that could be an issueAudiA4B6US said:How is the resolution of the RNS-E? Can't imagine that is much more than 320x200 or so. While the idea is interesting you might be better with a DVD/MP3 player. Those come with remote and play all kinds of media. A computer needs time to boot, a safe way to shutdown, and some custom application as human interface. Idealy it would be CAN connected to be controlled via RNS-E and not via IR remote.
There is an interesting project on www.3pmdev.de, a Linux mini-PC controlled via CAN-bus (old Navi D only at this time). Now, once they support the RNS-E, add an internal DVD drive to play video and make that less than the 1k Euro they currently ask for they could have some success.
