I would like to find a way of linking my digital photo frame up to the Pi. It is a simple frame that views jpg files and nothing else (no wifi etc).
I don't mean connecting it up as a screen for the Pi, as I have read previously that these frames have their own wiring and drivers so can't be used as a screen.
What I am thinking is the device has two methods of displaying JPG files - SD card and USB pen drive. I was thinking perhaps the Pi could be connected to the USB and pretend to be a USB drive but allow me to add and change the contents of the 'drive' remotely. This was the frame displays the pictures but I can remove/replace/add pictures on the fly and the frame would still happily display them.
What I would like to be able to do is have photos rotating on the screen, but also have news and weather from RSS feeds but generated as jpgs so the frame can display the info.
Is this sort of thing possible? I read a project a while back where something similar was done for the Kindle. Admittedly the kindle had a Web browser so was easier to 'hack'.
