hey guys. new to the forums, I've starting watching the series from the beginning. life changing stuff.

so, my company got an "HP Dream Screen 130" a few years ago, and basically, its a huge piece of crap.

Here's a CNET review thats pretty telling. http://reviews.cnet.com/portable-video-players-pvps/hp-dreamscreen-130-13/4505-6499_7-33796633.html

anyway, i was just wondering if anyone was familiar with hacks or mods for it. it has USB and SD card slots, and it runs an "undisclosed version of linux on an ARM processor that is not based on ubuntu or the mi version that HP released". it has wireless capability, so I was thinking maybe it could be used as a second display, or more epically, a monitor for a Raspberry Pi.

I figured this would be a good place to throw the idea out and see if anyone was familiar with it.

what say you?

Does it have a JTAG or anything of the sort?
