Cool things to do with an HDTV?

I'm acquiring a plasma HDTV, and I'm looking for cool things to do with it when I'm not watching movies or playing games on it.

In addition to cable and a blu-ray player, it will also have an Xbox360 and a PC attached to it. I'm curious if there are artistic screensaver-type programs that can be run on the PC to make the TV more pleasant to look at than a black rectangle, or other interesting imagery to display on the TV. For instance, are there programs to display high-rated photos from flickr or other photo sites? Live satellite imagery? Something else?
I can run either windows or linux on the PC and I'm not adverse to doing some programming if it yields something impressive, so both off-the-shelf solutions and imaginative ideas are welcome.
