I would like to move the skype device in our house from the wife's iMac in her study to our front room using the LCD TV (Sharp Aquos LC42 inch) as the video screen. . I want to be able to get the whole family in font of the camera and of course I want to have the bigger picture.
The TV supports HDMI and DVI in but no VGA. I do not own a web camera yet. What I really need is a computer that will hookup to the TV's HDMI in and also use a web camera that can be used in my living room (12 x 10 feet). This location in the house as a wired network connection.
I would not mind purchasing the Meerkat or Meerkat ION desktops if I was sure that I could make it work in my scenario. Has anyone built a setup like this?
