    Where does Apple TV pull pictures from when it starts showing them on the screen? For example, I have an album playing and after not hitting any buttons or anything for a while, my photos start to move around on the screen like a screen saver. But none of those pictures are in my iCloud photo library anymore, I moved them out to normal folders on my MacBook Pro. Are they on there from setting up Home Sharing in iTunes? or somewhere else? I just thought it was strange that they're showing up if I don't have them in iCloud or on my phone anymore.

    The Apple TV caches the photos. Find the cache file and delete it. I don't remember where the folder is created and I'm at work at the moment.

    It pulls them from iPhoto or Photos, whichever you are using. You can tell it what photos to use from this home sharing menu in iTunes.
