Hi There,
I have an Apple TV2. When I play music, and after a few minutes, the album cover appears along with the track title and progress - this is fine!
However it then proceeds to flip horizontally every 30 seconds... This is driving me mad!

Is there any way to disable the "flipping animation"

I know I can create a single image slide show, or turn off the TV! But I like the music menu, but the constant animation is awful!

Any Suggestions,
Peter

the animation is there to protect plasma TVs from burn in.

there is a setting to allow the regular screen saver to run while music is playing, It's in the screen saver settings

Thanks for that - now I know the reasoning, but still don't like it! Regular (static) iTunes interface is what I want as I don't have a plasma TV. But at least I know the why!

I noticed last night (presumably a change in the recent software update) that the photo sliding tiles screen saver now kicks in after a short while automatically.
