Mine were on the bottom of the bezel, but I would not think it would matter, I took the bezel off so the screen was flat against the mirror so the controls just hang behind the monitor now. The big thing is what way the power and VGA/HDMI face, you dont want them getting in the way.
@Cato Hi Cato, actually I don’t know what you really mean. The URL i use is http://userid:password@myipaddress:8081. This streaming URL works on any browser and on my other MM system. I’ve made also a shot of the icon I see on the screen if you mean that. Remember, when I’m URL to MM from any other system everything works as expected.
I realized that it is telling me to go to a different log now when I do npm start, which is npm ERR! /home/pi/.npm/_logs/2017-04-27T15_23_04_547Z-debug.log. In there it gives me this message:

25 error Make sure you have the latest version of node.js and npm installed.
25 error If you do, this is most likely a problem with the magicmirror package,
25 error not with npm itself.
25 error Tell the author that this fails on your system:
25 error sh run-start.sh
25 error You can get information on how to open an issue for this project with:
@Anhalter42 Yes, open an issue on github or if you already have made changes to either the documentation or written code that does your first suggestion then you would suggest a Pull Request to implement the changes you’ve made
@pauabaer sure, however, I have other projects to work on so I rather focus on them. I don’t have that much knowledge in javascipt either. (I do have some knowledge in other language though). When I do stuff it’s a lot a trial and error until that work (even for the tiny bit of code I made in this post required some research from me. Not a lot of it… but some. I never used the moments() function before)
This is your opportunity to gain knowledge.
Yup, I’m running on 3 different platforms and all are rock solid. My first mirror is on a Pi3. Then I installed uBuntu on an old laptop and MM runs beautifully on that. Then I installed MM on my PC and another laptop, both running Windows 7, and they have no problem at all. I did try on an old Mac laptop but that machine had issues of its own so I didn’t get to continue the installation.
I did it. Is not my “Main Magic Mirror”, I just made it for fun. I have no mirror, only the simple screen.
I have used an IKEA RIBBA triple picture frame, this has fit of the width and needs to be shortened only in length.
