Morning, all.

 

I have a specific use question and I'm wondering if a Roku might be the answer.

 

My father builds cars as a hobby. When he's disassembling them, he takes pictures as he goes so he has reference points for the parts (these are old British sportscars). Right now, we have a 42" TV hooked up with a little mini-PC that he uses to browse the images.

 

Problem is that the little computer has died on us.

 

I'm wondering if I could use a Roku stick with the MediaBrowser3 channel to allow him to browse the images using the Roku remote.

 

When I last tried to use the MB pictures feature on the Roku, I couldn't get it to work, but that was some time ago.

 

Would this be a reasonable solution? I ask because the Roku stick is $60 whereas building another little computer will run to at least $300.
