    I've got a working script that uses cscreen to automatically move the menu bar onto my secondary display (my TV) and then run FrontRow on the TV.

    This works fine if i hit 'run' in the script editor window.

    I need to know how to call that script automatically each time i press command and escape or Menu on my KeySpan remote to open FrontRow.

    It's probably quite simple but i've searched all over for an hour and still can't find anything.

    Please help!

    Thanks very much :)

    Not at the beach...
    First off you have to save your scrip as an Application.
    File>Save as...>Application

    Then you need to download an application that lets you make custom shortcuts.
    I recommend Spark.
    Using spark, you can make your computer run your scrip whenever you hit command esc (or something else if you wish).
    To use the Apple remote you're going to have to buy an application like Remote Buddy.
