I wanted to make a small Windows PLEX server / Karaoke & Bingo system. My major requirements are.
- Case must be a 2U chassis for mounting in a 6U rack. 4U already consumed.
- Motherboard must have VGA & HDMI out to connect to operator screen & TV’s & projector using HDMI splitter.
- Motherboard must have audio out to connect to a stereo receiver.
Picture for imagination.
Here is what I decided on, as I had some items laying around to use.
