Hi,

did anyone try to install Android on a Mini2440 with 7" touch screen?
If this works, WebOrbiter2 can be used - this could be a possibility

Yep that sounds doable. Give it a try... Web Orbiter 2.0 works fine on Android 1.6 by the way.

All the best

PS The other approach would be to port Touch Orbiter to Android

Hope you guys don't mind if I ask another wall-mounted orbiter-related question...

If you decide to put one in your hallway for example, chances are you won't have an MD in that area - does this matter? How do you set up a standalone orbiter for a given room without having to set up an MD in it first?

You can have a gazillion rooms in your house without an MD. The Orbiter select the room it wants to control. The main menu will display all the scenarios that are possible in that room. If you don't have a Media Director, that main menu will not show any media scenarios (like TV,Video or Audio).

I'm ordering a 2440 this week and start playing with it, i need a wall mounted orbiter for the bathroom, the wife wants music when she takes a shower and gets ready and building in some speakers this week.

I have a question though..... Can the standard orbiter be "customized" to show e.g. only an audio menu with different buttons for music/mp3's, internet radio, connected radio, "pandora"?. So basically a screen that is always there for my wife to play with and a button to get to the "main" menu if necessary?

Hope it makes sense.

you can specify a specific home PK_Screen in the device data for that orbiter, in the Advanced > Config > Devices

Look in the screen table for the screen you want, probably media scenarios. Use this screen #
