that's nice idea. I have no "favorite picture slideshow application",
but MythGallery could probably do this. If not, I could find an

There was also a plugin called MythRecipe or something like that. That
brought me to an idea to install display somewhere in the kitchen. I
do not need recipes because I am not a some kind of great cook, but I
like the idea of have touchscreen in the kitchen :)). Off course,
purpose of the touch screen is not clear :).

It would be nice to have some kind of simple theme for MythTv, which
could be used with touch screens ( keyword: car pc).
