I occasionally show my pictures on TV using Apple TV and my Apple MacBook Pro. Their wireless connectivity works well and HD TV makes the viewing very enjoyable especially while viewing with friends.
I have mine on a NAS which I can view on TV.
Delkin has a unit called HD Digital Photo Viewer that's you can plug in to the TV and view your pictures and video formats and displays them at 1080p quality and controls all menus and functions remotely.Its compatible with SD;SDHC;CF;MS;XD;USB;1.1;&USB2.0. plays most image &vidioformats including JPG;BMP;PNG;MPG;WMV;AVI;MOV;MTS and more. the price was about $25.00 when I bought it and it works great.
Have a Samsung 55" HDTV. All I have to do is connect a flash drive or SD card reader with SD card inserted to the proper USB port on the back of the TV, hit a couple of buttons and the TV runs a slide show for me. The internal TV program selects and displays JPEG's only even when the SD card has a corresponding RAW file. Select a file folder, open the folder, select the first image in numerical order and enjoy! I like to check trip pics that way because I get a good idea how the image might eventually look enlarged to a 24" X 36". I keep a USB cable connected to the back of the TV all the time just for viewing digital images. Am NOT a tech person and Samsung could not have made it any simpler for me.
I have looked at them on TV but not using a flash drive - just plugged my laptop in to the TV and played a slideshow. That way the laptop is in control and not the TV. I do this because the only times I have showed them is at someone else's home and not everyone has a USB slot on

The following is a question from a friend. Since I... (
I do it regularly - but I use a Chromecast to mirror my computer/phone/tablet. You can put your images into any order you want and do a simple slide show, or you can use Powerpoint or other business presentation software to do a better slide show, or even better yet, use ProShow Gold or ProShow Producer to put together a slide show with great transitions and you can even add music.
I put this together after spending about 15 minutes with the software. The learning curve is pretty easy.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=StpvIvjitWo
Using a Chromecast device makes this a much better experience than using a memory device or even a direct connection.
