You are right, we will have a function to turn off the screen when playing. a extra screen can run some program or setup, without interrupt the movie or turn on the big TV screen.
Some HTPCs are use for music playback, which connect to the receiver. In this case, a small screen will be much easier.
IR will be add. We are only selling the case with screen, so you can pick your own motherboard and CPUs etc.
any other thought?
