Thank you very much !
It definitely works.
But don't expect to use the apple remote control ... it doesn't work at all under this "modified" Front Row ...
Someone could tell why ?

Umm! Wow! I followed this and it worked better than expected. I've used the Enabler in the past, but only had marginal (good) experience with it. But I have to admit, this time 'round it's way better. Except for not starting FR with the remote, everything is good. I'm running iTunes server from my NAS, and it's working awesome!
Thanks for this. Oh, and I'd hardly say it took 20 minutes. More like 5 minutes. But of course that isn't including setting up iTunes on my NAS with my music and playlists. I never timed that part!
Just start Frontrow from Applications, and the remote does the rest (with help from Remote Buddy of course). And so far even Movie trailers is working.
I'm gonna share this with everybody I know. THANKS

Less than 5 minutes. More time to get to apple script than to create the script. for those wondering, if you don't like the icon that is there for the script right click on the original front row app and go to get info leave that open and right click on the scripted app you created and go to get info. now in the original application window the little icon in the top left, click on it so the icon is highlighted and command+c to copy (or right click and copy) then go to the scripted info window and click the crappy icon in top left so the icon is highlighted and command+v to paste (or right click paste. Congrats now you have a working script with the front row icon. Delete original app and rename your script to Front Row.
Confirmed working for me on 10.8.5 white macbook mid 2010.

I've tried everything. I'm on 10.9.2 and I have followed every step. I keep getting a "-10810" error even after compiling and saving the script and everything else.
I'm just about ready to give up. I see hundreds of others who say FR works on Mavericks following these instructions. I've even tried Front Row Enabler and it doesn't work anymore.
I have an AppleTV but I use that in my bedroom rather than the living room because all my movies are accessible via my computer and not through iTunes.

We would suggest to search for an alternative of Front Row and not to spend time by trying to get it running. Even if it would work now, then it will get more and more difficult with every new Mac OS X update.
