    my next test in the Rasberry pi slide show is this build of Raspbain 

    http://www.screenlyapp.com/

    I am testing the open sources version but once again this means we need to have a network connection in the room i like this one the best so far because i can add more images and can likely build a scripted to update the images but will need to wait until im sure that the network is up and running in the room. I am using the open sources version because I don't want to have to use the web version

    The simplest answer to this project is to use xbmc or openelec but i really wanted to try something with more of a Raspbain 

    type layout because it has much more that can be loaded for future projects so after trying xbmc i decide to install XBMC to Raspbain using this guided but have had no lock

    Next i found this build of Raspbain that is a digital sign that i really though would do the the trick. however there is both a paid version and a free version and the free version is very limited in what it can do so this is also a no go http://www.binaryemotions.com/raspberry-digital-signage/faq.html
