Alternative graphics for Eee Box?

by Keyfinger / March 25, 2009 3:11 AM PDT

Hey everyone, I just recently bought the ASUS Eee Box 202 so we could hook it up to our LCD TV and do light web surfing, watch TV episodes, etc. Well the graphics card on it isn't impressive, obviously, so I was wondering if it might be possible to plug in a USB graphics card to improve the video playback for flash and other web video services, completely bypassing the internal graphics card. If so, can you suggest any good ones? I'm running Ubuntu 8.10.

Thanks, Steve.

I could be mistaken that they don't exist though

They do exist, I'm just looking to see which would be the best choice for what I need.

USB 2.0 speed being what it is.

You can find HDMI and such USB 2.0 "cables" but given the speed of USB 2.0 it's fine for 480p or less with "motion" but past that I'd stick to slide show modes.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
