What sort of set-top box should I connect to a 47" monitor to display an auto-refreshing webpage/webservice vertically?

The monitor is already purchased. The page is mostly built. I think I could connect a Logitech Revue, style the page with
-webkit-transform: rotate(-90deg);, and simply mount the display vertically. This seems so simple, and so cheap, that I am scared I am missing something. Is there a better way?
Additionally, with the Logitech Revue (or any other box you might be recommending) how gracefully can the page auto-refresh? I can imagine writing some AJAXy stuff to do it fairly cleanly and sensibly, but a plain old page refresh every 90 seconds, or whatever, sounds delightfully low-tech.
