Looking for a way to allow parents to play avi files, display picture slideshows and use Skype on their TV.
Any ideas for a media player device that can do this?
Cheap, but good quality (ha, if you can use those two in the same sentence?!)
Must be easy to use/navigate etc.
Want to plug in a USB camera for video Skype.
Can connect via VGA, AV component or hdmi. Not really happy with composite or s-video really.
Not too fussed if it does full HD resolution as their TV is 720p only.
-Though needs to be able to play 1080 files, even if downsized to 720.
Wired or wifi, though wifi probably preferred where they are, house design etc.
Android sounded cool but in reality I don't know how useful apps will be when you're not mobile, so don't have GPS/accelerometers etc?!
Not too fussed on internet browsing, though that might be nice.
email etc is a no go, they'd use a computer for that, with a real keyboard!
Any ideas much appreciated.
