ATV2 - anyway to display photos at 1080p?

I know the ATV2 doesn't support 1080p video, but what about the ability to display photos on the TV at full 1920x1080?

I'm guessing not, since a quick look at the TV resolution settings lacks any such resolution.

Sorry, but the ATV 2 doesn't have 1080 support unless you resort to jailbreaking. Even then, it's a bit of a hack since the hardware really isn't designed to do it and you'll find support for 1080p lacking.

Think about what you're asking. If the mode isn't available then how would it do so?
