lol, yeah. Use FrontRow or iTunes. It's much easier that way! Very Happy

By the way, did you install it on another partition or external drive?

Hey I got it running on my iMac too! Unfortunately it doesn't appear to let me change the screen resolution and things are cut off on the right side of the screen. Then when I exit out of the app my screen resolution is changed to what atv thought it should be, and I have to reboot before I can change it. Other than that it runs great! Rolling Eyes

Did you download the version that you had to put in your coreservices? Mine is called "backrow" just like on the atv. I got it from that place we're not really supposed to talk about starts with a "d" ends with "oid" Is that the one you got? If not, where did you get it? How did you replace Front Row with it? The instructions for the one I got said to setup one account with itunes sharing to atv, and then use fast user switching to logon to another account and fire up backrow. Since my screen resolution was all borked I didn't try it, but that sounds like it should work. Shoot me a PM to discuss more if you'd like.
