I was wondering if someone can shed some light on an issue I have been having. I select a large folder of pics (4000+) to be my screen saver and it only seems to cycle through a few hundred... It never brings up anything new. I have done some online research on this but really can't find anything recent or totally helpful.. Thanks..

You're limited to a few hundred pictures, sometimes less if they are high resolution. There is only a small amount of space on the flash drive for screen saver images. Most of the space is used to cache streamed videos.

Thanks. I figured it was something like that but had secretly hoped an Apple TV update might have changed it.

I believe the figure is closer to 100 images. It is annoying as I use a shared photostream as my screensaver and they're all pictures of my little boy. You could always use the slideshow feature, although it isn't a fix it's a workaround.
