Hello all. (-:

I would like to build a custom Karaoke machine, but haven't found a PCBA that'd do what I'd like. Any help there'd be great, but all comments are welcomed!

I'm hoping to build a karaoke machine (think video-game console) that consists of a micro-SD card reader, an HDMI-out slot, a 3.5mm audio-out jack, and PSU.

The machine would plug into a TV via HDMI, and optionally to external speakers via 3.5mm audio jack. The TV would then display some sort of file navigation dashboard where an MP4 could be selected & viewed (something like an old-school Mp3 player would be sweet). The machine could be controlled via _______. I'd like to control it thru my Android phone, but this isn't significant.

Input? Suggestions? Ideas? Suggested PCBA? All comments are welcome. (-:
