  • How to Make a Raspberry Pi Media Panel (fka Digital Photo Frame)

    BTW, I just checked out your Fireside site, read more about it, and signed up for the limited beta for the service. Great stuff! It's feature set is basically everything I wanted (and more). Fantastic job! Question: Is the service going to be accessible from the raspberry pi 2 with wifi? That would be excellent. Keep up the great work on making photo frames relevant again! Best,BrucePS: I just ordered the LCD controller board from NJY (HDMI USB AV VGA ATV LCD LVDS Controller Board for LP171WU3-TLA2 1920x1200) and am now trying to find the panel in-stock somewhere. Exciting! Can't thank you enough for posting this and sharing all your hard earned research.

    Ah Ok. Yes, I was wondering about that. I may just have to create an iOS app and install it on my old iPad 3, but then I'm limited in screen size. I may also look into jailbreaking my AppleTV 2, then mounting it on the back of the monitor. Bulky, but I'll surround with a nice picture frame and mount on the wall. Wiring may be a problem...Got a lot more to think about. But thanks for your post. I really like the idea of using a laptop monitor with a raspberry pi 2, but squeamish about connecting up and programming the the right LCD controller with the right code. But you've inspired me! Thanks. Any other tips or advice is always appreciated. Many thanks.
