Backing up your photos is not a bother. There are a legion of tools that will make it easy and automated and will even ensure that your data is offsite. Doing it manually is also pretty trivial too.

This makes me think of all the cloud services out there that we can use to do this kinda' thing. Dropbox and Skydrive especially come to mind because they now have smart TV apps.

Not sure if any such services have apps actually loaded into any smart TVs, but these both let you view your photos on your TV and present them nicely.
