    Any indication of the new features in Front Row 2 that Steve said will ship with Leopard?

    I can't see it happening but an Apple TV UI would be really cool :)

    any ideas? It seems pretty complete as it is I guess!

    Front Row could be a whole lot better... Here is my list of features i want before i ever use it prorerly.

    *Third Party Support - Things like eyetv would be great
    *TV Tuner support - could be done via above
    *Screen options - Place it on any screen powered by the mac rather than just the main screen for use with tv's etc as you could still use mac without interupting tv
    *Speed improvments - Too slow to start for the first time and its known to pause a lot
    *Slideshow settings tab - sick of quiting to osx/iphoto to change settings
    *Easier way to launch without remote, maybe icon as people cant magically guess the key combo of apple+esc or whatever it is.
    * Growl support - support the display of growl messages while your in the menu so you can see when you recieve email etc

    Probably loads more to consider but thats what i wish for :)

    I'm guessing Front Row was a pilot for the Apple TV. Now that it has been released, I'm guessing the next Front Row will be similar.

    is "support for *.srt DivX subtitles" too much to ask for? :D

    And the remote, it has to be fixed, have you ever tried to change the subtitles language and "get stuck" in the menu because if you press UP it volumes up (instead of moving to the item above)??

    Strange :)

    I forgot, Leopard is almost here, at last! w00t!

    i would imagine itll be faster with less 'pauses' as it will be a part of leopard, whereas with tiger it was 'added on', so should be more intergrated. i agree with eyetv support though remote buddy does me anyway
