    @archaos

    Well, the Front Row i'm talking about is in fact the AppleTV's patched Finder.

    I've just modified its .app name, its info.plist inside Contents and its Finder binary inside MacOS.

    Now the system believes that it is the standard Front Row.app it uses when i press the apple remote menu button.

    So i can still use my original OS X Finder when i quit "Front Row"
    (you better have to stop any media playing before quitting to avoid file corruption).

    awesome! do you know of a way to use your media on the current computer?

    also, for all those needing an installer, I found one here:

    I guess we agree on what we are talking about I was just saying that the front row from the apple tv has been called back row on many other web site.

    The thing that i m really looking forward is how do you quit back row (the apple tv frontrow) on your macbook ? It is the last step we all need to be able to use it without killing the finder from another computer !

    Thx

    I would like to kill "frontrow 2.0" with a menu-entry you could create by cloning a *.frappliance in the Plugin-folder. I'd like to launch a bash-script like this:
    Code:
    kill $(ps -A | grep [A]ppleTV | awk '{ print $1}')
    (in this case the Finder.app was renamed to AppleTV.app).
    But if I replace the default binary with my own the plugin is not longer displayed in the menu :-/

    EDIT: Here is a plugin mentioned - http://www.awkwardtv.org/?p=12 anyone some technical details?
    ps: pls ignore my broken english

    Back Row is running Java Hotspot.

    This is what i've got after messing with appliances and crashed one.

    FrontRow[267]Java VM: JAva HotSpot(TM) Client VM (1.5.0_07-87 mixed mode, sharing)

    JavaNativeCrash_pid402.crash.log :

    OS:Mac OS X
    CPU:total 2 family 6, cmov, cx8, fxsr, mmx, sse, sse2, ht
    Memory: 4k page, physical 1048576k
    vm_info: JAva HotSpot(TM) Client VM (1.5.0_07-87) for macosx-86

    If you want to know what is Hotspot >
