Can I use my digital photo frame as a monitor?

the digital photo frame uses a usb connection to accept photos. if i plugged my dvr into the photo frame via usb, would it be capable of being used as a monitor as i navigate through the dvr menu (I don't have a tv, don't ask)

Not likely. The digital frame saves bitmap images as files and displays them. The USB port is used only to transfer the files from one device to another. What you are asking is if the frame can display streaming data. That's not the purpose of these devices, and it would be very unusual if it does.
