Album art as Screensaver on Apple TV take 2?

Before the update I had my album art as my screensaver. Now it doesn't work - I just get a black screen if I choose that option. What has changed?

Incidentally, I use my Apple TV to stream stuff rather than store it.

Could someone else try it and see if it works for them. I hope they haven't changed it so you have to have the albums stored on the Apple TV itself...

Mine works fine. It shows all the album artwork in the screen saver. I use my Apple TV to stream as well. Maybe you need to go into the setup or settings again. That is what I had to do. Go in and readjust the settings to your liking.

I've tried and I've re-tried - still no joy. Anyone else having the same problem?

make sure your itunes in the bottom right corner says Apple TV - I had the same problem when it was showing as computer. Personally i have no idea what either mean, but it worked for me

How do you set your album art as the screensaver?
