    Thnx, will look in that one. Has to be working in Europe and need to be transported for a decent price.

    Or use an O2 Joggler flashed with chill's Jivelite image. They appear fairly regularly on eBay for ú20 or less. Screen is 10" though. Here are two of mine, one on test because the screen colour is different:

    Cool, just bought a O2 via a secondhand website like eBay. Paid more than 20 pound but less on shipping I guess
    Have to wait on arrival.

    I thought about correcting that but didn't.

    IMO an O2 Joggler purposed in this way is far better than a Pi with Touchscreen. It is physically more stable by some considerable way.
    VB2.4 storage QNAP TS419p (NFS)
    Living Room Joggler & Pi4/Khadas -> Onkyo TXNR686 -> Celestion F20s
    Office Joggler & Pi3 -> Denon RCD N8 -> Celestion F10s
    Dining Room SB Boom
    Kitchen UE Radio (upgraded to SB Radio)
    Bedroom (Bedside) Pi Zero+DAC ->ToppingTP21 ->AKG Headphones
    Bedroom (TV) & Bathroom SB Touch ->Denon AVR ->Mordaunt Short M10s + Kef ceiling speakers
    Guest Room Joggler > Topping Amp -> Wharfedale Modus Cubes
    Everything controlled by iPeng & Material on iOS

    That's exactly what I did and couldn't be happier
    I got an Amazon fire HD 8 for 70Ç on Black Friday. Look to next 23rd, I think it is one of the dates when Amazon makes specials.
    I used this to fix the tablet to the wall: https://www.amazon.es/dp/B01BX5YU7Y/...81_TE_SCE_dp_1
