    I keep all my movies and TV shows on an external HD. Is there anyway to get front row to brows that instead of the iTunes movie directory?

    Create an alias to the directory you want and copy it into your movies directory. :)

    is it an alias to the file with the movies in them or an alias to the actual movies?

    well maybe the movies that you are trying to watch in front row use a codec that isn't supported by front row then?
