Actually, the answer is two years ago, not today. I recall a column in one of the popular photo magazines (senior moment - wish I could remember the photographer) where he wrote about using the Apple TV to do just what you're saying, almost as soon as the Apple TV became available. And he WAS doing it in his home.

Very nice! As for Google TV you can have Pandora play in the back while a slideshow plays in the front. Call me old school but I still like the printed image!


I've been using the AppleTV 2nd gen to do this since it was released. Slide shows, videos, music, radio, etc, all streamed from the Internet or any one of the six computers and four mobile devices in our home. I cancelled all cable subscription service somewhere back in 2009 because there's more than enough entertainment, news and learning content with a simple aDSL service line at 1/4 the cost using the AppleTV.
