    Hi, all.
    I am looking to put a screen in my store with a slideshow of my work on it. I want to fill an sd card or something similar with pictures and have them play on a loop all day. What would be best to do this on? Any tv's monitors with this feature built in? Yep i know little to nothing about this sort of thing. I know what i want to do but not how to do it, so as title says............. it's help out a dummy day

    Can't you do it on a USB stick then put it into a USB slot on the tv and then select USB from the tv under sources.

    If the way the TV handles images is not to your satisfaction, you can use a Raspberry Pi as digital signage with various software, some TV's can power a R-Pi from the TV USB port.
