Use album art as a screen saver in Apple TV Other Hardware
If, like me, you have way too much music in iTunes to sync over to your Apple TV, but would like to use album art as a screen saver, just do the following:

Create a playlist in iTunes (I call mine Artwork). Then drag one song from each artist you want displayed over from your library. Try and choose the shortest song, since you probably won't be listening to this playlist. This might take some time, but when you're done, just sync that playlist alone over to your Apple TV. Grab your remote and choose Albums in your screensaver settings, and voila! all of that beautiful artwork will cascade down your TV screen as your new screen saver.

Hmmm. 2100 artists in my library. I wonder how long that will take?

Make a smart playlist that includes songs whose track number is 1. May not be the smallest track though.
