    Anyone know how to display the album art on the TV while Airplaying music? Sometimes it shows, but sometimes it just flashes the notification in the upper right corner and plays in the background...

    Navigate to the Music app and "Now Playing"

    Would this still work if I am playing music from my phone or mac? I am not by the atv right now, but I assumed there would not be a "Now Playing" option if I am playing music from outside of the Music app.

    Yeah, as suspected there is no "Now Playing" that I can find in the music app because the music is playing externally via Airplay

    I turned the setting to display the screensaver off (settings) while music is playing. After a short time the album art appears on the screen and stays there.

    That setting has already been set to off. You might be right, it just takes some time for it to appear.
