Topic: External monitor out to use the chumby as a digital picture frame
I am thinking that the Chumby is better at doing "wifi digital picture frame" behavior better than any of the dedicated digital picture frames on the market today, so I am thinking if we can come up with a way to get video out to an external monitor we could use the chumby as a digital picture frame.
Has anyone out there done this, or have any ideas on how to get the video on to a monitor?
Cause for $180 for the chumby and $99 for a 17" LCD you could have a really nice digital picture frame.
Plus we could write other applications/widgets for the Chumby which we can't do with dedicated digital picture frames.
Think things like changing the "photo album" that is on display from your wifi enabled PDA or cell phone.
So if you had a party the night before and set your "my wild friends album" to display and your mom comes over you can change to the family pictures real quick.
There are probably a few other applications we could come up with, especially if you incorporate an Asterisk PBX, a motion detector, security cameras, or other home automation integration.
