    yes there is a backup folder that will set everything back to normal.

    everything is very easy, just follow the instructions

    ok, so i like the look.... but underneath the icons, should it always say (applelogo)TV? or should it say iTunes, DVD Player, etc? Because it's only saying (applelogo)TV for me

    i hate how when i click on movies, it just sits there and spins the wheel forever. even if nothing is in my movies folder, front row is broke

    also, when i used to exit out of front row after watching a movie, itunes would be open in the dock

    it's a codec you need to download for quicktime.. i'll see if i can find it for you.


    EDIT: i'm pretty sure this is the one http://mac.softpedia.com/get/Audio/AC3-Codec.shtml. it's AC3 codec that you need. let me know if this one works for you.

    No :( thanks for the suggestion though :hsd: I figured having divx pro would be enough, but i guess not. Maybe I need to restart? i'll try that.

    edit: still a no go after restart :dunno:

    if you read the directions....

    when you replaced the file in "step 2" that is what changed this (Localizable.strings), if you don't want it to say appleTV underneath, then replace it with the original file located in the "backup" folder. :bigthumb:

    Don't know if you fixed it already, but it seems to be step-2 that does it. I did both, and really didn't like the appleTV logo there, replaced it and it stayed there. Came back later, it was gone.
