Photo Streams keeps showing same set of photos

I have Photo Streams linked to one of my Google Photo albums. The album has about 500 photos in it. But every time Photo Streams runs, it will keep showing  photos from the earlier part of the collection (date-wise). It seems to completely ignore more recent photos in the collection. I assumed that the photos chosen were random, so it would span across the entire photo set, but it clearly does not. Has anyone else noticed this also?

Re: Photo Streams keeps showing same set of photos

Hi @cjstreamer,

Thanks for sharing this with us.

Please be advised that photo streams may allow only at least 100 photos to stream. For further information regarding this feature and functionality, you can refer to this support article on how to use Photo Streams on your Roku streaming device.

Let us know if you have other concerns or inquiries.

Re: Photo Streams keeps showing same set of photos

You need to break up your Photo Stream into multiple sets with a maximum of 100 each to accommodate the full set of 500.

The blog post contradicts the support page which states, "Note: A stream may not allow 100 photos if the storage limit for the Roku account has been exceeded."

I suspect the blog is wrong.
