    I am not sure at what point this stopped, but for some reason my streamed photo library isn't showing up in my Apple TV screensaver. If I set it to album art it successfully shows it on the screensaver (all streaming). If I set it to photos all I get is the built in nature stuff.

    At my source menu I can browse all the streamed photos and view as slideshows, etc.

    Anyone else have the same issue?

    Unless I'm mistakened, :apple:TV cannot stream photos for use in the Screensaver app.

    Correct, this is not a current feature.

    The screensaver only works with sync'd photos stored on the :apple:tv HD. The screensaver does not work with streamed photos.

    I had the same issue.

    The solution is to turn on streaming AND syncing, and sync only your photos. You can still watch your movies and listen to your music (via streaming), and the screen saver shows YOUR photos.

    Rats, I thought this was going to be about the parental controls blocking steamy pictures.
