It's good to hear about the bug fixes for Front Row. I'm assuming this will let you play HD shows. Anyone try yet? I'm still at work. Sad

I wish Apple would add rentals through Front Row and give it more of an Apple TV interface. Anyways, I hope this update fixes some of the stuttering I've had with playing different movies. It's been going on since about 10.5.1. That being said, it could also be an issue with Perian.

Plex is already nice, but I can't wait to see the fruits of that relationship. The guys from Centerstage should have a better understanding of working with OS X.

I really wish that Apple would get around to adding album art to shared libraries in Front Row one of these days. Why can't this be done?
