Ask you question in the AppleTV forum as that's what's used to show photos on TV sets from iPhoto.

OT, I put this question in the iPhoto forum because I'm thinking about replacing my desktop with a Mac Mini, and it runs the iPhoto app.

But as I understand it you still need the AppleTV to connect the Mac (Mini or not) to the TV set. I don't have AppleTV but users often have questoins about it and iPhoto here. Specifics on AppleTV will be found in the other forum. So ask both places.

Again thanks for your help, but I have no interest in and Apple TV as my TV already access streaming video. Based on everything I have read, the Mini can plug directly into the TV using a HDMI cable. I'm specifically looking for how iPhoto works, and if it is worth trading in my windows machine and go full Apple.

To play slideshows in iDVD one has to either select an album and use the Play button at the bottom or create a slideshow in the slideshow mode and then play it manually. iTunes can be set to play a playlist or assign an iTunes playlist to the slideshow so the photo playing time is the same as the playlist.
I've not connected a Mac to a TV set (only an iPod) so really can't give you any first hand suggestions.

Yes, you can use a Mac connected to your TV with an HDMI cable to play an iPhoto slideshow on the TV.
