I've tried to do the same thing. The only way I've been able to view jpegs from my PC while listening to music using the Denon is to access my PC while listening to internet radio. It's slow, and takes patience while the receiver accesses your PC, and then accesses the picture files. If you have your "My Documents" and "My Pictures" folders on the C drive, the receiver will find it. If you've moved your "My Documents" folder to another partition, then you will have to copy the picture files you wish to view to the "Shared Documents" folder on the C drive.
I still have a regular TV and am planning to move to an HD projector this spring. Currently, I have a CV switch with all of the CV outputs from the Denon, the DVD player, the SACD/DVD-A player and the SVideo from the PC connected to it. I'm able to switch back and forth between the various devices external of the Denon and view them on the TV one at a time. The output from the CV switch is connected to one of the TV's CV inputs.
The SACD/DVD-A player has a USB port on it that reads Fat32 files and a CV as well as a HDMI output. I created an FAT32 partion on my external hard drive, copied all of my photo files to it, and am able to view those through the player's USB port, through the CV switch to the TV. This is all external to the Denon. It works quite well, but there is no way to view a "random" slide show using any method that I can think of so far. Doing this, I can play whatever music source I want on the receiver while viewing pictures on the TV.
I think the summary of my long winded answer is that I'm finding solutions to listening to music while watching a photo slide show outside of the Denon. I haven't found a way to do it through the receiver, except when listening to Internet Radio.
My next challenge is to determine how I'm going to split the audio and video of multiple HDMI souces into one HDMI video output for a PJ, while connecting their HDMI audio to the Denon. I'll also need to continue to view the CV menu GUIs from the various components in my system over the same single HDMI video output. So far, I haven't found a scaler/switch that will do everything I want it to do.
