So I have a few typical movie posters in my theater but am sitting here playing on the forums and had an idea, although may be pricey.

I was thinking of buying some digital picture frames, putting jpeg movie posters on an SD card and have them playing on the frames.

After doing some research it appears the biggest frames are 15 inches, so now I am wondering if there are any computer monitors or perhaps cheaper TV's where I could insert a SD card...

Anyone give any thought to something like this?

If I could get an inexpensive monitor maybe 22-30 inches and have a scrolling movie poster marquee, could be pretty cool.

Make it a Great Day,

Shawn

You need to search the forums. This has been done and discussed before.

I like what Bluer101 did with an inexpensive hdtv, some wood, and using a usb jumpdrive. :


Look what Black Friday got me!
