    Hi,
    I am running the eee Top 1602 in my kitchen with Monochrome Skin.
    The eee Top itself works great (however I upgraded Memory to 2 gig Ram) but there is no touchscreen skin for MP available, so I you want to watch TV there is no easy way to get out of fullscreen TV, by using touchscreen.
    Everything else is doing ok so far.

    In the beginning I had the issue that my TV preview was stuttering, but upgrading the ram solved this.

    cheers

    Hi,
    ... but there is no touchscreen skin for MP available, so I you want to watch TV there is no easy way to get out of fullscreen TV, by using touchscreen.

    I solved this with an Autohotkey script, see AutoHotkey - Free Mouse and Keyboard Macro Program with Hotkeys and AutoText. With this script, a "double click" on the touchscreen brings up the context menu, so you can go back from there.


    Code:
    LButton:: 
    if winc_presses > 0 ; SetTimer already started, so we log the keypress instead. 
    { 
        winc_presses += 1 
        return 
    } 
    ; Otherwise, this is the first press of a new series. Set count to 1 and start 
    ; the timer: 
    winc_presses = 1 
    SetTimer, KeyWinC, 200 ; Wait for more presses within a 200 millisecond window. 
    return 
    
    KeyWinC: 
    SetTimer, KeyWinC, off 
    if winc_presses = 1 ; The key was pressed once. 
    { 
        Send, {LButton}
    } 
    else if winc_presses = >1 ; The key was pressed twice. 
    { 
        Send, {RButton}
    } 
    
    ; Regardless of which action above was triggered, reset the count to 
    ; prepare for the next series of presses: 
    winc_presses = 0 
    return

    Cheers,

    Hi Jayrock

    Are you using the eee top as a client in a multi-seat setup or as a stand-alone client/server single setup? Does it have the juice to run TVserver?

    Hi hhg,

    my post is just about the double click - right click mapping on any touchscreen. I'm using a seperate one, not the EEE Top.

    Cheers,

    memory upgrade??

    Hi Joystick!!

    I just read this review from asus eee top 1602:

    "Another drawback: What you buy is what you get. The Eee Top is a completely closed system, and you can't upgrade the components inside--which you may find frustrating if you want more memory than the unit's included 1GB (plus a 160GB hard drive). In addition, Asus took a page out of Apple's book and omitted any optical drive."

    My question is, how do you did the memory upgrade? Is it still possible? What about the processor?

    Thanks in advance!

    Is the EEE-Top 1602 really powerfull enough to run Mediaportal? And does the wireless connection suffice to stream videos an TV?

    Greetings Volture
    UPgrading is as easy as it can be (when you are able to open some screws....)

    Yes, and yes the eeeTop is absulutely powerful enough to run MP with SD-TV wireless streaming, given that your connection is ok. It streams with max aof 56mbit so, no problem here.
    I am runnning it with the monochrome skin, so another skin like SteamedMP might give you different performance, because of its grafics...
    BUT not to be misunderstood.... I am running it as CLIENT only, no tv server and card in this box. Only streaming from my server.
    This runs great though.

    Cheers

    I uninstalled MP, made sure no sub folders were left n any programmes folders, changed the computer name, rebooted, installed MP and set logs and rebooted and ran TVServer.
