The annimation used to show picture, whether it be scrolling from the bottom up, checkered, up down, left to right, and right to left, what ever, is cheap, just plain cheap looking.
I’m using this device to display my photography. And what a let down.
My Windows XP Pro, Media Center, did a better job at showing the pictures.
Professionaly done the photos should be SMOOTHLY transitions to the next picture, and better yet, the picture should be slowly moving on the screen when in a slideshow.
When displaying the pictures, not the transition effect: Since most pictures are bigger than 1920 by 1080, render the picture to 2048 by 1150 (or what ever) and make them zoom in, out, slide while showing the picture.
The checker pattern for a transition, it has to go, that is just for kids!
