    I don't see why not.

    It seems to run as if it's ment to be displayed over on a TV set. I have a 23" ACD and it looks like it's running at 740x480, stretched-but still clear. Everything is just so huge and there's no option to run it differently.

    one thing I always kinda thought was that the people having problems with the DVD playback on front Row was because the DVD player in the iMac Rev C was different then thr ones on other macs. I'm glad somebody finally released that program as well.

    I still had an issue w/the DVD player after swapping it out for the new one. I also had problems viewing trailers (kept getting "couldn't connect to server" issues) not to mention the whole thing ran rather slowly & froze sometimes. Plus I keep my music & movies elsewhere & not in the Apple specified folders so that feature was useless.

    Meh, hopefully they'll release a version everyone can use.

    I love this app. My next purchase is going to be a IR remote and reciever. Then a much bigger HD so i can use my BigMac as a Movie
    and Music hub.

    Do you guys also have to click on FrontRow icon first before you can access this program?

    Just the one per location. So the DVD app goes in the applications...plist in the prefereces...etc.

    Make sure you backup the old stuff.

    It takes 30 seconds to install everything. Try it & see. If not, just replace what you had to install.
