Hi

I want to hang a flat screen sideways and make a movie poster frame where I can send movie posters to display.

What's involved?

1. LED TV

2. Mini PC for program? I found this: https://www.amazon.com/Pro-X5-Z8350-Processor-Graphics-Bluetooth/dp/B07VWQWZBT/ref=sr_1_13?dchild=1&keywords=mini+pc+windows&qid=1594911198&s=electronics&sr=1-13

3. Software: EG https://www.movieposterapp.com/

Am I missing something or better way??

Nice idea is integrate with K-scape ?

I can certainly try it... Should like fine.

Are there any mounts that are designed to be placed at a perpendicular for a 40" LED?

BTW - I'm new to this. What type of file or files do I import to the USB so it'll play? One movie poster at a time or can do many like a slide show?

Thanks so much!

I'm currently doing this myself as well. I'm using the following;

1. 43" Vizio 4K LED TV

2. Raspberry Pi4

3. MovieNow App

I'm all in for about $450 plus building a frame around the TV. Can be done a little cheaper now that I have put all this together. The MovieNow App works great and comes with 1000's of movie posters.

I am using the Samsung frame for the display. Using a low end intel Nuc.
