    They will do, the Apple TV only has limited storage for screen savers. If you wish to see all your photos, you should use a slideshow rather than a screensaver.

    I have the original 1st generation Apple TV, and also the latest generation.  On the original Apple TV, it could actually store all of your pictures on the device, so the screen saver sources all of your photos.  Since the new Apple TV does not actually have storage that you can utilize, I'm assuming that it can only pull down about 50 pictures or so to use as the screen saver.  This is unfortunate, and certainly a step backwards, as one of the real values of the Apple TV is its ability to be a live photo book.  Does anyone know if there is any way at all to change settings to increase the number of photos the new Apple TV can load?
