comment Charger of less output ampere than device?
Higher amperage with the same voltage is fine. So if you use a 3A or a 5A charger, at 5V, you'll be ok.

comment Lossless VOB conversion with ffmpeg
MKV is a container, as is VOB. Neither are video formats. If you want to simply change container, yes. If you want to change codec/format, no. Changing container only works if the devices support the codecs but not the container.

comment LCD image is fuzzy when connected via analog connection instead of digital
It could just be a low quality VGA cable or a low quality adapter. Have you tried a different cable and adapter?

comment How to disable execution of shell scripts and executables on USB device?
You probably want to go to security.stackexchange.com - what you're asking about is how to secure a system from physical attack. Lots of this will have been covered there already - but read their FAQ (security.stackexchange.com/faq) first.

@m4n07 then you need to do more than just stop them running programs off a USB stick...

@m4n07 you do realise that once they have physical control over it they have full control should they wish it.
