Min spec for MD?
« on: October 24, 2007, 11:46:40 pm »
Hi Guys,

I was just wondering whether there was a minimum spec for the Media Directors. I have seen some hype regarding these nifty devices:

They are a thin client that goes into a wall like a socket. It has the DVI out and a USB port, perfect for them dongles. Is all the processing done on the DCERouter box? Or is some done on the MD?

Underpowered processor...unspecified video chip... windows CE based... even if you could pxe boot it. Therefore I somehow doubt that this hardware would work at all currently.
