Use standard Android tablet as player?


I wonder if one could use a tablet with HDMI-slot as Xibo-player. Did anyone try this? There are lots of cheap tablets out there.

Seems that only startup-auto-power-on could be an issue.

Another question related to Android-devices: Is it possible to control the TV through HDMI? On Windows-PCs this does not work, so how could I power on and off the TV by Android and Xibo?


Anybody any thoughts?
