    Hi everyone. I have seen Media Central, and thought it would be a nice thing to have on my PowerBook, but was just wondering, does it install an application or something else like Front Row so when you press a button it appears? Please help.

    Thanks,
    James.

    It installs an application that works more or less like Front Row with some extra codecs tossed in.

    I believe it invokes using Shift + Esc. I haven't used it in awhile though.

    I think it is shift+esc too. It's a good program, but it needs a lot of work. Many, many glitches.

    I had it crash only once while fast forwarding. Nothing, that needed a reboot though.

    I've had it crash while trying to listen to other peoples' iTunes music. There's also the issue that album artwork looks like crap when playing a song 95% of the time. It also won't display full song names if they're longer than like.. 11 letters. Etc, etc.
