connect usb mem stick to phono soxs on TV
I have photos on usb flash sticks I want to play through my TV. It has no slot for a usb. It does have a spare scart, S-Vdeo, numerous phono sockets, no SD slots. Is there a connetor I can plug into the TV and play the usb picture by picture using say the tv remote control please?

You need a media player, such as . (That is just an example of the sort of thing you are looking for, not a recommendation.)

Thanks for your suggestion. It maybe a sledgehammer to crack a nut. I was rather hoping someone would suggest something like a cable with a female usb at one end and a couple of phono or jacks at the other. I am only interested in photos one at a time.

Well, you need some bit of equipment that can recognize the file format of the picture and then convert it into a signal suitable for a TV. A simple cable isn't going to do that for you (although many digital cameras have such circuitry built in).

Thanks ijack, its not what I wanted to hear!!!!

My own camera does plug into the phono's of the tv to show the pics on its xd card but now I have transferred them to a usb stick thats where I find myself.
I supose I could put them on a disc and play them on the TV that way. Not sure how many pics one can get onto a a disc.

You still may not be able to 'play' the photos from a disk unless your TV and/or DVD player is able to recognise the picture format. The usual way of making disks play in any player is to create a picture slideshow, which is essentially a movie made up of your photos. Windows Live Movie Maker can certainly do the job, and the number of pictures you can add is largely dependant upon the size of the images.
