Any TV's have USB photo folder screen saver function?


Novice Member
I have a Samsung LN40C... LCD tv, a couple years old. It has a USB port and I can view movies and photos on the hard drive I plug into it.. but has no screen saver option where it will display a slideshow of photos on my drive after 30 minutes or whatever.

Does such a feature exist in any of the new models? I want to get a TV for my mother, 40-50" range and I'd rather not have to buy something like a Roku or WDTV just for photo slideshow.

There is a slideshow function on newer generation Samsung models though I couldn't tell you which as I only have a plasma C7000. One way to know for sure, go to samsung website, pick out a TV, download the manual in PDF format, then search for slide text in the PDF, if it finds it then it supports slideshows for sure.

Alternatively check out models in TV store armed with a USB flash drive.
