    Lightbulb Need assistance on advertising project for work

    Hello world,

    I need assistance in putting together a box with Ubuntu 8.04, HDTV input support, and running it vertically paneled with a rolling presentation from open office for example.

    Background: We initially purchased a 42" Plasma for work to run a financial newscast on during work hours to help gain some walk in attention. This was the bosses idea. I am hoping to steer this into more of a marketing project where I can run both side by side to create an attention grabber along with a revenue generator.

    Tricky Part: I am stuck with vertically mounting the HDTV so it conforms to our available window that faces toward foot traffic.

    What I need to find out:

    1) Does this seem feasible?
    2) What HDTV tuner cards are out there that work for 8.04?
    3) What do I need to do to make the screen turn 90*?
    4) Is it possible to then stack these two items vertically to display what I want concurrently?
    5) If that will not work... how about a way to rotate say, the desktop to the second panel after a period of time to kick between the two without any user input?

    I really appreciate your input on this. I prefer not to go the windows route on this one if possible.

    Thank you,

    Tex
