    I cannot get the ATV2 to stream photos stored in the Time Capsule. I have all the obvious settings turned on in iTunes- home sharing, and chose the photos folder stored in the time capsule, but for some reason the ATV2 get's stuck on the loading library screen. I am able to stream HD Movies stored in Time Capsule to ATV2 with no problems but not photos. Can someone explain why or suggest a good way to view photos stored in TC to ATV2? Thnx.

    Can someone please explain this?

    Update: As a test, I created a folder in Time Capsule and put just a hand full of photos in it. I reset photo sharing in iTunes to that folder, and !voila! they show up on ATV2. But when I select another folder with a bit more photos then the ATV2 gets stuck on the loading page. Hmmm?

    Fixed! Must have been the recent updates

    Photos stored in TC disk now stream to ATV2! Plus there are some really neat slideshow themes. Must have been fixed from the recent updates to iTunes and/or ATV2. All (music, movies, photos) is good now with TC and ATV2!:)
