The idea of an picture frame is great but the reality of it is just so-so. My kid gave us one last christmas and it is still in the box. Do you own one? If not then think about it first, hehe.
Ok..to the project at hand; here is what is needed. A monitor having a dvi or hdmi input and a dvd player with similar output. Also it has to have a usb input for flash drive or other such devices. Good luck.
Is there a way I could easily (or atleast relatively so) use an LCD monitor or LCD TV as a picture frame. Since those are ridiculously priced at 150 dollars for seven inches. The cheapest I've ever seen for any reasonable quality is 80-90 when I can pick a 15-19 inch lcd monitor for around 100-125 dollars. Ideally I'd use a flash drive to plug directly into the monitor. I'm tinking a monitor wouldn't do since its basically a display device only with no processing capabilities. As such I've considered an lcd tv, which is still more bang for the buck but I don't know if I'd have to hook a mobile device to it such as pmp, or if I could use flash through an adapter, or what exactly. I'm just looking for suggestions so I can get the most bang for my buck, thanks!
