Nope, and in addition it is prohibited to connect any outside device to the TV's such as DVD player, etc.

This isn't a case of hooking a seperate DVD/VCR/BR/Console to the TV. The restrictions do not prohibit the connection via aUSB/SD card to the TV, if so equiped. The question was if the TVs had a USB or SDcard slot to view pictures. Some TVs or DVD players allow you to take aUSB flashdrive or your camera's SD card and plug it straight in to view the pictures as a slideshow on the TV. One could argue, if the TVs had the Component/RCA plugs and you brought your camera's component/RCA plugs, you could still connect since technically, they aren't a DVD/VCR/BR/Console.

The first word of my answer to the OP was "Nope". That answered OP's question and then I added more info for reference only.

As far as I know there are no ports for USB/SD cards/devices...whatever they are called.

I just found my pics of the back of the TV from the Magic that I took a few years ago.

I'm pretty sure it says "service only" underneath the USB socket.
Most likely for firmware upgrades and setting as these are Hotel model TV's.

The (15 pin D Sub) VGA socket has been reported as working by other's, as have the composite and component inputs.
(the one underneath the VGA (9 pin D Sub) is a serial connection to control the TV via a automation system)

If they do have a SD card or USB slot they will be on the side for easy access.
