    Does anybody know if Apple TV can display (briefly) the song title and artist name during a photo slideshow when background music is on? I had a number of people who wanted to know what was playing while they were viewing the photos.

    If so, how do you go about activating this feature? I haven't been able to find it.

    There's no onboard feature like that, that I know of but there's a way to do it.

    Stream your music from iTunes to your tv as an Airtunes speaker. In the meantime, you can run a slideshow without sound as a screensaver.

    The result is your tv displaying your photos as a slideshow and when a song changes, the album cover, artist and song name appear on the lower left corner.

    Great idea!!

    That's a great idea! I'm going to have to try that when I get home. That would solve the problem.
