    talk about downgrade..

    -music always screws up when i'm connected to my library on a network drive (always worked before)
    -movies doesn't recognize a folder which is an alias to my movie folder on my server.
    -music stops when entering and exiting front row.


    i am really disappointed, cuz i use front row a lot... any one else agree?

    i never really used front row in 10.4, because it would just sit there and spin the wheel instead of bringing up my movies
    the one in 10.5 is pretty nice imo

    I like the new Front Row. The only thing that is odd to me is why they got rid of the transition. Now it just seems odd.

    so, i still can't get music working in front row from a library on a network drive even though some have said they have.. any tips? this is kinda making me mad and wondering if i can revert back to front row 1.0

    so, i kinda got it partially working, but not really.. and not consistently. when itunes is not open, i can play music in front row but only by going to shuffle.. when i try to go to artist or anything i get a black screen, then it hangs. i'm really not impressed with FR 2.0.

    because, I use iAlarm to turn on iTunes in the morning. So I used to wake up, go to now playing in front row, and I could see everything big screen.
