    My ATV2 Screen Saver source for Photos only offers Photo Stream as a source. Where is this Photo Stream coming from? iPhone? iTunes? iPhoto? The Photo Stream being used includes photos deleted long ago from Photo Stream on my iPhone and within iPhoto.

    Thanks.

    it is streaming from your photo stream stored in the cloud (not from any of your device).

    Thanks

    Ah. That explains it somewhat. Is there any way to change the source to something else, such as photos stored in iPhoto's library?

    Thanks.

    you could change the source to itunes.
    you can select which photos you want to share (provided they are stored locally) by going to "advanced" > "choose photos to share".

    of course itunes has to be open and running to be able to stream to the appletv.

    Solved

    Thanks for the comment.

    Had to shut down and restart iTunes to get the photo sharing in the Advanced menu iTunes to be recognized by the ATV2. Seems to be working now.
