Three Pi's "On My TV" (Just for fun ...)

Just to see if it could be done (for fun) and partially as a "backwards compatibility test-rig" I began setting things up just before the newest release of "Stretch" so some of the screenshots are already dated but "enjoy" anyway.

Still running Raspbian Jessie or Stretch on some older Pi's (an A, B1, B2, B+, P2B, 3xP0, P0W, 2xP3A+, P3B+, P3B, B+, A+ and a B2) but Buster on the P4B's. See: https://www.cpmspectrepi.uk/raspberry_pi/raspiidx.htm

If your TV has Picture in Picture you could view 2 at once too ?

My Panasonic TV has several PiP modes, one a side-by side mode with the screen split in half horizontally.
Android app - Raspi Card Imager - download and image SD cards - No PC required !

What a clever idea. How do you like your setup so far?
