    Love the AppleTV so far but Apple needs to update iPhoto when creating slideshow movies to support ATV without re-encoding!!! OR update ATV to support these files!!! Also add 720p res for slideshow export/send to iDVD in iPhoto!!!

    Right now I have a lots of slideshows created via File -> Export and Share -> Send to iDVD from iPhoto and none of the movies are visible on AppleTV!!!

    iPhoto "Export" movies are only 640 x 480 with 6.6 FPS while "Send to iDVD" are 853 x 480 with 6.8 FPS, which I currently prefer.

    Does anyone know why these files aren't visible on the AppleTV??? :mad:

    I certainly hope Apple will address this with a soft update without us forking out $$$ to upgrade the iLife suite just for ATV support.

    Unfortunately I agree with ehurtley, don't count on it. You (and I ) bought the device with some known limitations, and this is one of them. The :apple:TV syncs only with iTunes, and hence only gets photos from one PC or Mac. This might change with iLife '07 and a firmware update for :apple:TV.
