    I've got it installed to replace the old frontrow.

    Rename the AppleTV's Finder.app to Front Row.app
    Get inside Contents/MacOS/
    Rename Finder to Front Row
    Get inside Contents/
    Open Info.plist and change <string>Finder</string> to <string>Front Row</string>

    Now go inside /System/Library/CoreServices/ and replace the old Front Row by this new moded.

    Repair permissions and reboot.

    You can now use the Apple Remote menu button to call the AppleTV's Front Row !

    Got to find a way to quit it without ssh/killing the Front Row process from another computer.

    it would be great if we could integrate an apple remote emulator into the OS. I'm sure one probably already exists.

    xianli --

    have you found a way to hide/minimize the appleTV finder?

    I'm trying to get the appleTV to see my iTunes on the same computer as the appleTV finder is running on. I've been unable to switch users and do it -- appleTV finder blocks that sort of stuff (ie. /System/library/coreservices/menu extras/user.menu/contents/resrouces/CGSession -suspend)

    Let me know.

    @Xianli does Command+Option+Esc work to quit the ATV interface? It works for Front Row... I can't test it myself (stupid job frowning on hacking their systems)

    I've tried all i can, the only way, for now, to quit AppleTV's Front Row is using ssh from another computer.

    I was thinking about a brutal way of messing in the code to make a function/option to crash Front Row when selected.

    Legal section can be the one that could be hacked to quit/crash the frontrow process.

    I've done it sucessfully on an intel imac and my method is posted here:
    http://forum.insanelymac.com/index.php?showtopic=46680

    (I simply created a new username and then set the default Finder to the modded one (on my desktop) and whenever I login to the appleTV username, it runs AppleTV.

    I'd also like to find a way to quit it tho.... It feels horrible having to force shutdown my mac every time I wanna change users... The keyboard definitely works though, because command + shift + 3 produces a screenshot. However I can't log off / shutdown using any of the key combinations.

    Are you just killall'ing the frontrow?

    I need a way to hide it, not kill it.

    What about Quicksilver and a Trigger? You can write a trigger to issue the killall and have it set to a hotkey activated by Quicksilver. Could work since you said that the keyboard seems to be working.

    I've read the version of DsurioN. Everything (enven the devil :p) is ok. But, you tried on a MacBook, so how can you have a 1680x1050 on it?
    Currently, the green devil is in maintenance!

    Just tried and it doesn't work.

    I've made an Applescript App (Tell Application "Front Row" to quit).

    I've checked with "top" in a ssh and the Quicksilver hotkey (Apple Shift 2) "quitFR.app" to quit AppleTV's Front Row is not starting when Front Row is started.

    Gonna try to takeover the Apple Shift 3 (screen capture) as Front Row let it go.
