tvOS 16 - My Photos & Homesharing Screensaver pulling only a few photos

Since upgrading all three of my Apple TVs at home to tvOS 16, the photo screensavers are pulling only a few dozen of the most recent photos to shuffle--whether using an album from my iCloud library or a folder with the photos from my Mac via Homesharing. All three Apple TVs are displaying the same behavior.

I have three Apple TVs at my office which I did not update and they are all still behaving normally; that is, randomly cycling through all the photos in the album/folder when the screensaver is activated.

So, clearly, something in tvOS 16 broke this. I seem to recall something similar happening with a previous rollout of a new tvOS version that eventually fixed itself after an extended period of time and updates.

I have tried toggling to different screensavers, different sources for photos, etc, all to no avail.

Anyone else seeing this and any ideas?

Thanks.
