I was going to get rid of my Mini but I found a way to keep it(financially) I plan on using it for downloaded movies. Is there anyway to have Front Row use a different folder for downloaded or ripped movies? Right now its on my system drive which is almost full.

yup! you can create an alias to any other folder/drive you like, then just drop the alias in the "Movies" folder. . .

(to create an alias, just right click on the folder/drive you want)

One more question. It seems front row only really works with I-tunes(for rental downloads) Amazon, and a number of other places rent videos online too but they all have different selections. Is there one program like Front Row that kinda harnesses all the other providers? Meaning I can rent from any source?

I would ask this question in the Awkward TV Forums . I don't see anything that can do what you are asking, but that would probably be a nice enhancement to Nito TV or Channl.TV plugins.

Hope this helps!

Thanks, from what I see using a Mini for this may not be the best solution. I still need a at least a mouse to surf I-tunes to pick out my movies before being able to use the remote. Its a shame they dont update Front row to let you totally navigate i-tunes (the store) unless they do I and I just dont know. I am new to using my Mini this way.
