7" RPi Screen on Nems

#8
My Nexus 10 Android 5.1.1 solution has now been running for a week with no issues now.  It's the latest released for the Nexus 10. So much for Nexus getting all the updates.

I saved a nems/tv shortcut to the home screen for quick access.
As Robbie said Android does not resolve the nems.local so you have to use the IP address.  This is a reserved IP address. 

The only thing I had to do was put Android into developer mode so that the screen/display would not time out/go to sleep.
In developer mode the screen is constant when the battery is being charged.
In Battery mode I have set display time outs to maximum so that it does not have to be refreshed but this only takes a tap when security is turned off.

The portability of the tablet means it can be moved about my house as well. I have fast Wi-Fi pretty much everywhere in the house.
I mainly use wired connections so my Wi-Fi bandwidth is pretty good.  I have two WAP's running 802.11 n/ac 2.4 & 5GHz and both fed by 1Gbs connections.

The other benefit of the tablet is if I have to acknowledge a problem then the tablet can also do that.
I have tested running up Nagios core, Nagvis and a most of the menu items and all worked well.  I found that using a stylus worked better than fingers too. Fat fingers??

I also tried it with an iPad Mini and used Safari.  It all seemed to work OK and nems.local did resolve.
As I am not as familiar with Safari as Chrome so things were a bit different (I am mostly Android) but got it to work.
I mainly use the iPad Mini for my Phantom 4 and to Facetime with my daughter and grandkids in Brisbane.


However this gives another dimension to NEMS.
