Why doesn’t somebody make a small device to plug into a leftover input of an HD TV to run a looped video of a nice landscape or something like that, to turn that LCD HD TV device into a useful wall panel? I’ve searched, Googled and so on, and I can’t find anything like that.

Make it an iPod-sized device with RCA outputs. The HDMI inputs on the TVs are already used up, so it has to work with one of the unused inputs, which tend to be RCA.
