    Hi all,

    I was originally intending to output my HDMI from the CCTV PC I run BI on directly to my 75" HDMI TV but the issue is im using ESX and ive been unsuccessful.

    Im considering now running raspberry pi and plugging that into the TV via HDMI.

    Has anyone used this to access their BI machine via HTTP with good results?

    Thanks

    Ignore me. An Amazon Fire TV stick looks like the go !

    I side loaded BI onto my FireTV with little effort and the mouse addon and runs like a champ.

    I've been doing this on a monitor in my bedroom for 2 years now... I also made a picture frame/Blue Iris viewing station:

    Can you tell me about the Mouse add on? BI is useless without a mouse on FireTV with side load. I got it loaded on but you cant view the cam feeds in full screen.. without a mouse its a pain!
