    Has anyone had any success using a Harmony Remote (specificaly the 550) w/ FrontRow? And if so, have any tips?

    Basically i have it all set up and running. I have it able to engage front row and cycle threw the main menu (selecting itunes, dvd, photo, video) but once i get into that submenu i cant navigate up and down through the options.

    Any tips would be much appreciated.

    I was tempted by the Logitech remote but then I used the Remote Buddy application that can be used with the Apple remote and it works really well especially as I am using Front Row with EyeTV on my mini.

    But that isnt much help if you have just bought a new remote really!

    Thanks, ill check that out. The Harmony is now controlling my entire entertainment system (using the mini as an HTPC). Was hoping i could get rid of the mini remote, but if not the Remote Buddy seems like a nice option.

    You should be able to use this program to set up front row witht he harmony. I have front row hacked onto my iMac G5 with the keyspan remote. Well i got tired of the way the keyspan remote felt so i set up the harmony to be the keyspan.

    Basically you should be able to put in the harmony menu under device the keyspan remote. Then form there just set up the application (the keyspan one) for front row. It should work.
