For sure. Currently the thing is setup via the external video port of
a laptop (with a long VGA cable). This thing however is a present for
some oldies and they dont want to bother with having to have a laptop
in the lounge room going. The lounge is a long way from the office :(

The other option that I did forget is a S/H Mac Mini.  Anyone got one? :)
