Hi there...Congrats on the project. I Was planning on doing something similar but wanted to know if it was possible to pull pictures from from a NAS (Freenas) via a wifi usb.

I just responded to your comment on my blog:

Sure. FreeNAS supports NFS and SMB. I haven't used NFS in years, but it is fairly simple to install samba to support SMB (Windows file shares) and then mount a shared folder on the NAS. You could also pull files as needed using FTP or SCP, but I would go the samba route.

The one shown on my blog is now hanging in my office. When I make the next one (for home) I will use wifi and pull the pictures from my server.

Good work, those pre-made frames are often over priced and low res. This would be a real nice way to have a high res photo feed paired with a good led backlit panel it would be fairly efficient as well. I didn't read your blog completely but a clock and calendar overlay of some kind would be useful.
