Origin AE HTPC cases and LinuxMCE
« on: March 03, 2009, 08:33:36 am »

I am about to get into LMCE after much umming and aahing. My only visual unit is a HD projector and as such I just bought the OriginAE S21T case with built in 12" touchscreen.

Some people have suggested it is redundant to have a TFT on the case itself as it is better to have an Orbiter, and part of me agrees. I think it is also good to have a display on the uunit for those times where I need to perform tasks on the core machine itself...

What are peoples thoughts ? These cases retail for 1000 USD, I picked one up for $300 but Im worried it was a waste...

I also have the issue of it potentially not working with LMCE....

You will have a problem, because lmce does not support dual display out of the box.

As has been suggested before, get a regular orbiter, and be done with it. Put the machine someplace you can't see it, and it will be a nice solution. For remote access, use ssh. For initial setup use a regular TFT display, or just use your projector.
