    I just set my Apple TV to download new aerial screensavers "daily"

    Does this mean it will not instantly start downloading new ones? Will it just keep downloading every new one 1-after the other? Or does it download 1 every hour?

    I'm just wondering because I haven't really seen any new screensavers yet in the past hour after clicking "daily" and I only seem to have about 5 screensavers at the moment. Looks like theres a lot more judging from here - http://benjaminmayo.co.uk/watch-all-the-apple-tv-aerial-video-screensavers


    Do I have to make sure my Apple TV isn't doing anything for it to download?

    Apple has only done two different aerial releases, so no point in sitting there and waiting for something new to download.

    Yes, I understood what you meant. But that's not how they are downloaded to the Apple TV. It doesn't download dozens and dozens of screen savers in two released batches. It downloads them one by one, seemingly random since no one has been able to figure out the pattern for years. Hence the original posters question.
