I just redone my pictureframe and updated the innards with the inside of a TiBook G4 400. This makes it usefull again because the old PB 1400 innards were aging and the frame was never used anymore. Now that it can run OS X i can use it as a Picture frame and download station in one. I'll make pictures of the setup when i got time, cause its a real cool mod to share with you all.
Anyway all is setup and running, the main display is used to present the pictures as a picture frame, i got remote desktop running so i can log in using my MBP from home or work. The slideshow program im using is Photo presenter, really nice program which i applescripted to run on startup and start slideshow. Photo presenter has and option to choose which display to use. My idea now is to make the tiBook think it has a second display connected to the VGA port, so i could use that display for bitrocket/download programs while logged into it using remote desktop while the main display is stil used for the slideshow.
I know its possible and thought that it involved a VGA plug that was hardwired in a way to let the TiBook think it has another display connected? Can someone give me a hint if its possible? Or is there software that makes that possible?
I'll post a story shortly about the new picture frame when this last problem is solved.
