I have successfully shared photos from my computer to my Apple TV via iTunes, by going to Advance > Choose Photos to Share.

However, when I add photos to that directory, they do not appear on my Apple TV. I have to re-select the folder to share in order to see them on the Apple TV.

Is there a way to allow the folder to auto-update? Or can I specify how frequently the Apple TV checks for new photos?
