>> Thinking aloud: I found out that very long USB cables are quite cheap, for example 50 feet for $17. It would be easy to have such a cable go from the TVs through the attic and drop down near our office PC. Then we could easily change the content, or attach them to R.Pi boxes, or whatever.

Had another idea! We know the TVs can read directly from USB sticks, but can they read from a PC connected by USB? If so, and if the TV's software lets you navigate folders, then we can attach them via long cables to a server, choose files through the TV remotes, and it's done! Dean is our docent next Saturday. Dean: I sent you a private message with some experiment instructions.
