    Sorry to post to an old thread but I came here from a web search lloking for answers to the Front Row problem.


    It's true it isn't there in Lion but there are alternatives. A great one I found is Plex Media Center and I wrote a blog post on installing it.


    Hopefully this will help others searching for the same:

    I've given up on it now.


    One day soon someone will have a solution, then we will all move to their stuff and Apple will be relegated to a nostalgic entry in Wikipedia.

    Front row enabler for Lion.....

    Be sure to read the entire article, there is a hard way & an easy way to install this.. te easy way is explained towards the bottom. Front Row will not be 100% functional, perhaps 90%.... but it works well enough for me.

    That is BS, it was a perfectly functional good working application. And with them adding uneeded features and droping things like Frontrow, PowerPC support, etc Im Going Back to windows 7. Really Apple! P.S. I miss snow leapord intro.

    Wow,  this is kind of uncool.  I just bought a mac mini quad last week, almost a grand.  I walked right past all the windows boxes that sold for about half as much, and dropped 960.00 bucks on a new box.  Excitedley I got home and was so happy, because my g5 died just over a year ago, (it had been limping along for a very long time) and now I could move back in to the wonderful world of mac!  Yeah!  Oh wait, my copy of photoshop doesn't work any more? OK OK I can get a new one, just a couple hundred more bucks, mabey in a month or two.  OH NO THIS MEANS Illustrator, Civ 3, Acrobat, and all of my other Power PC aps are dead also!  I have read that FCP studio 3 will run on this box (that was why I bought it) fortunatly I have yet to find my install discs so I do not know, yet. So after scouring this city to find a new remote for my new box ( it was impossible, so I talked mom out of hers) I get home and and thinking hey it will be a good night of movie watching.  wrong again kimosabe.  Now I guess I can live with spending more on replacement software than I did on the box, in a very begrudgingly way. But the end of front row is the one that concerns me, because it seems that this is part of a corporate shift to cloud computing.  I hate cloud computing.  Now do not get me wrong, it is phenomenal for enterprise computing ( a huge market for apple, remember apple servers?) but not for me.  It seems to me that if the only device I had was a tablet of some sort, think Ipad, then cloud computing would be awesome.  However I dropped the extra bucks on something with a hard drive because I will use a hard drive, therefore the cloud option was, is, and shall not be the path of choice for me. Also what happened to support for Apple tv first gen?  It has a hard drive that I actually use, it was really nice to just fire up the stereo, select the Apple tv hit the genius button and have some tunes while I washed the dishes, worked on a household project or just plain vegged.  Now I have to fire up the box and do streaming useing my computer as a media server (without front row mind you) whaaaaaaa?  So now I guess my best option is to pick up an old box, which I am realizing this as I type, not only to save about $1500.00 to $1900.00 in software costs, but to reload my Apple TV?  Hmmmm I saw a couple of really nice mac book pros on ebay for about $150.00 to $250.00 bucks.  GREAT.  But as a side note I loaded the remote app on my Iphone, and it works great.
