PiKVM - A Way To Access Your Headless Snakeoil PC like you're right in front of it
For folks who aren't aware, Pi means Raspberry Pi. And KVM means Keyboard/Video/Mouse.

Information here:

You connect a HDMI cable and USB cable from your Snakeoil PC to the PiKVM, and then a network cable and power source (Some options will do PoE) to the PiKVM, and you can remotely access your Snakeoil PC from your local network (and beyond).

You can DIY (, or get ready made: You can see a video of one in action here:

Remote consoles like this are usually very expensive, and they involve bulky cables (I purchased 1 for $100 a long time ago as a punt but it was money wasted and I had to send it to e-waste). PiKVM works and is very cheap compartively for what you get.

This is a good option for folks who likes to tweak their Snakeoil PC constantly, and yet want to keep their listening envrionment as clean and neat as possible.
