    I have a 2nd gen apple TV, with home sharing set up for the screensaver to pull from an album on my mac with thousands of photos in it. However, only a limited number of photos show up over and over.

    This has been discussed before, and I understand that the problem was still there in the 4th gen.

    Does anyone know if the problem has been fixed in the Apple TV 4K?

    Bringing this back to the top in case there might be someone out there who can reply. How many photos can the Apple TV 4K sync when in home sharing mode?

    Mine syncs to over 20,000 photos on my imac - all the content of one very large folder with very many sub-folders. This mainly works well, but sometimes I struggle to get it going again when I have updated content in the source file.

    But for the screensaver it seems to use only a very limited number of photos, which I believe are held on the ATV itself.
