hardware web page viewer
I'm after a simple hardware device that can be hooked up to tft to display our helpdesk call monitor, sort of like a thin client but just configurable to view a web page not sure if anything liek that exists.
Looking for somethign sub £100 really.

Something like a miniITX solution with the appropriate video outputs to connect to your tft ?

I was thinking something even more basic than that.
Preferably not something running linux or windows but maybe that's not possible

eeboxes are about £200.
wii you have to purchase the web browser for it to be able to web browse.
I want something small, cheap and reliable that everytime it's turned on will go to a specific web page.

set it to logon automatically, to open ie on boot and set your helpdesk as the home page.

Bit inelegant though.
Maybe it's something that can be done with a thin client?

its small enough you could mount it on the back of the tft. you could use the wireless to make it nearly cable free?

A dual display card for one of your computers and a VGA extension cable?

I allready use dual monitors so can't do that solution.
Maybe is doesn't exist then.

Given the way web standards change and the way that everything now requires java, flash, shockwave, siverlight etc to run you may have difficulty finding a device that supports just this with an external moniter output and no known OS. There are things like the nokia internet tablet but these would not suit your needs.
There are also those linux on a bios projects that can run with certain motherboards and act as an embedded system that can include a browser but this is probably to big for the purpose.

All I want it for is to diplay the call monitor page from MLH.
