basically you'd literally stick or tie in the back, with a short HDMI cable
plugged in from the CHIP to the HDMI port of the TV. The computer desktop
or whatever you want (full-screen view of a movie, slide show, web page,
etc.) will display on the TV set. You can control it from your desk, and
network two or as many as you want and control all from any other
networked computer in your subnet OR just give a subdomain so you can
control remotely, say you want to change what appears on the tv from home.
anything you can do with linux you can do with one of these, the TV becomes
the computer display.
