    Hello,

    Im not fully understanding the AppleTV Screen Saver when it comes to personal photos.

    I initially set up a shared Photo folder with about 4000 images in it. At *most* it seems to show them same 50 photos over and over "randomly". How do you make it show all the images sequentially with a memory of where it left off ?

    A software update then came out that "fully supports Photos folders", which sounded awesome (no more 5000 photo limit). I can see these photo folders, but then how do you set it to be the screen saver ? And if you can does it actually show all the photos in a cycle - remembering where it left off last time.

    thanks.

    iCloud Photo Library works well... try that instead

    But there is no option to set an iCloud Photo Library folder as a screensaver
