Showing digital camera images on TV via DVD reader

I am thinking of buying a DVD reader for my TV and am wondering whether I will be able to use the equipment to display my photos held on computer produced CDs. If so, will I need any special computer software to format the CDs, or to buy a particular type of DVD? I cannot easily connect the PC to the TV as they are in separate rooms.

you just have to change the images from jpeg to mpeg stick them on the CD stick that in the DVD player and away you go....

I've bought a Cyberhome DVD player from WHSmith for £50. It will play photo CDs as a slide show or you can view the images individually. It will also play multi-region DVDs with a slight tweak ;-))

Thanks. I am thinking of getting a DVD recorder when I can make up my mind which one to get and whether to wait a while to see if prices drop.
Is it as easy as just shoving the photo CD in the DVD reader and pressing a few knobs?
Also, how do I change the format from JPEG to MPEG? My Camedia software does not seem to have any such facility.

Mine just reads jpeg.
Just drop the cd in away you go.

Yup, mine plays Disc Formats: DVD,CD,MP3,CD-R/RW,VCD and the cat's tail. With a new firmware download it will also support...JPEG support - JPEG Slideshow - MP3 nose repaired - automatic 16/9 change-over - SVCD zoom function added - SVCD navigation extends - MPEG 2 support extends - some DVD titles fixed - mini DVD information flow-rate increases click here
