we've just setup xibo. Raspberry pi sat behind a 32" tv. Got the whole setup for less that £400. Not bad considering a few companies were trying to charge us upwards of £4000
Got Xibo running Google calendar in one corner. BBC news in top corner. and daily bulletin scrolling across the bottom.

How have you got it running on a Raspberry pi? I didn't think there was a client that worked on the pi yet.

We have it running on these: MINIX NEO X7mini - MINIX with the Android client licensed from Spring Signage https://springsignage.com/xibo-for-android/ and it is running really well. The box and license comes in at under £120 each...

Hrrm they looks suspiciously like another device which I can't quite put my finger on...
I've some PC's that would do the job (acer revo's) but I've another 2 displays to put in and I wanted to see if raspberry PIs had matured - android seems like a good idea for lower power.

We are using Intel NUC's with 27" TV's across the school. Last year's model (Celeron based) will only set you back £160 after including a 32Gb mSATA SSD and 2Gb RAM. They have dual HDMI outputs, which means we can have displays facing in both directions. The newer versions only have a single output :-(
Total cost for each installation (with 2 screens) is around £320 using xibo

I've everything feeding back to a cab thanks to some HDMI over Cat5 adapters (saves space behind the TV) but cab space is an issue too! Nucs sound interesting

Just to note that you'll need to add another £40 if you want to run Windows, but offset that with the knowledge that the NUC's come with VESA Mounting plates that can be put on the back of a monitor or directly onto a flat surface.
And the box they come in makes the Intel sound when you open it (All worth it just for that).

Advantage of the NUC appears to be the two hdmi, that saves running 2 x RPi's (I need to run on 2 screens), time to see if there's anything left in the budget ;p

Got the NUC, running with windows 8.1 on it and auto logon, with last power state set in the bios - pretty much fit and forget now It's sat in the cab connected to two 47" tv's with cat6 hdmi extenders, works great
