[vcf-midatlantic] TV update -- possibly fixes

As I see it, we have a few options for controlling content to our TVs.

Current: USB sticks directly to TVs. Works fine. Problem is changing the 
content is a hassle. Need to get a ladder each time, etc.

We could use very long USB cords and have the sticks somewhere more 
convenient. Problem: It's hokey :) and long cords lose signal quality.

We could attach microcontrollers to each TV to provide the content and 
connect the TVs wirelessly from to a computer, but that doesn't solve 
the issue of how to put different content on each system. I'm not going 
to devote a whole computer for each TV.

We could use the media players that Martin would donate. We'd still need 
one for each TV, but we can control many of them from the player 
company's CMS software.

Am I missing other ideas?
