O2 Joggler or similar
« on: October 29, 2012, 12:54:15 pm »
I'm looking for a smaller (7-9") touch-screen tablet that I can permanently plug-in and mount to a wall in a kitchen and a bedroom. I envision these as being mainly used to control the thermostat/lighting and as a squeezebox player on steroids. I know there was someone playing with an O2 Joggler a while back and I was wondering if these are still viable options for either an orbiter or (ideally) a MD/media endpoint.

I recently bought 2 O2 jogglers, and used Squeezeplay OS as a base to add Orbiter to it. Now I added 5 more... :)

atm it is a pure Orbiter, which works fast, needs manual configuration, doesn't do a screen saver, but is okay for me.

btw: The joggler uses 7W of power, and you can use some Level One 1201 PoE Splitter to power it via a PoE switch. It is important to note, that wall mounting isn't straight forward, as you need a good heatsink for it.
