In the menu bar click on Advanced then go down to "Choose Photos to Share" and from that selection you'll be able to pick your iPhoto folder.

You may have to hunt for the actual photo library but you'll find it and then you select that iPhoto Library Folder and voila you're all set

I am also thinking the continuation of this thread belongs in another area or section. As we are no longer dealing with the resetting issue. Is there a Mod that can help me out here?

OK, finally figured it out. I was going into the iTunes menu from the top left main menu by the Apple sign.

Good I am glad you got it. Also as a sidenote, I would be careful with your screen shots. From that screen shot, I got your name and whatnot and I am not sure how you are privacy but just a head's up in case you didn't know.

I am glad the ATV is now working well for you, enjoy it. I know we enjoy the **** out of ours

If you keep the ATV in the "Never" Sleep Mode it won't really hurt anything except using your home network bandwidth. But sometimes the cache folder in the ATV gets "clogged" (her phrase not mine) and a quick reset of the remote should clear it and IF that doesn't work, then the easiest thing to do is go into iTunes, go to Advanced, turn OFF Home Sharing, then turn it right back on, verifying of course that on the ATV it actually disconnected from Home Sharing. And voila, its all back and working fine. She said that Apple recommends using the Home Sharing on/off feature versus a hard reset to the ATV and makes sense to me.

I have now done this to all 3 ATV's and they are all back to working perfectly while streaming MY photos and not those silly animals and all my movies are there and it all just works.

I hope this helps someone else too.
You don't use bandwidth unless you're downloading or uploading. The scren saver doesn't use band width.
