    Overview

    Create a slideshow of your photos

    Introduction

    Select a folder, or create a folder with just the photos you wish to display as a slideshow.

    enlightened   Add Music

    Add a music playlist, called folder.m3u, in the same folder as the photos for your slideshow. The music will start to play as soon as the picture slideshow starts.

    Use the Pictures menu, or the context menu (F9 or Info/More remote button) and select either Slideshow or R. (recursive) Slideshow
