That’s interesting. I had never heard of an LCD controller board before. I’ll keep that in mind in case I come across any free broken monitors. How heavy is yours? The monitor I’m using is an Acer X223 which weighs 6.4 pounds with all the trim. For some reason it feels much heavier than that. Plus I think the frame weighs a couple pounds. How much does your 24"er weigh? How far do you break yours down? I took the plastic case and the stand off. The rest looks pretty hairy but I imagine I don’t need all of it.
I’ve heard it’s not easy to setup multiple displays on a pi. But I don’t see using multiple pi’s to be too much of a problem. I could run MagicMirror on all them and use one of them to orchestrate the rest. That’d be uncharted territory for me but I think doable. What about how it would look to the end user though. Would they be able to see the individual LCDs or do you think it will be possible to blend them into the rest of the background so you can’t tell there are multiple displays?
