Connecting Monitor without raspi
Has anyone attempted or successfully installed a MM in a mirror without using a Raspi? I have mine setup through a virtual machine as proof of concept and would like to keep it in the VM and I could in theory run the display through Ethernet. But I can’t quiet wrap my head around the logistics just yet.
@jtmoore81 I think you have two options:
You could use your VM as a MagicMirror Server and then buy a cheap computer like an Raspberry Pi Zero W, that can be attached to your monitor without a big foot print. The Raspbery Pi Zero W will run MagicMirror Client.
Just buy a cheap HDMI to RJ45 adapter. Connect the HDMI adapter to your Host machine and map the HDMI port to your VM.
@idoodler Both are good ideas. Thank you.
