    I'm having a problem with FrontRow freezing up whenever I try to use it. It just hangs and I have to reboot everytime. Does anyone have any suggestions? Thanks.

    have you tried...

    it's either ctrl+alt+ESC or alt+command(apple)+ESC to force quit an application. For that matte have you tried apple+q just to quit it.

    When you say it freezes, could you describe more, at what stage it freezes?
    e.g. can you navigate the menus at all, is it when you try to go to movies, music, podcasts, etc?

    Front Row Freezing Up

    Front Row works fine when I first go in, but as soon as I try to select something from the menu, such as movies, music, etc tt just hangs up and the little icon spins and spins. I've quit the app mutiple times and rebooted and it continues to freeze up when I try to select movies, music, etc.

    Try having iTunes open. That's what I have to do to make my Front Row work.

    Tstaff, did you ever find out the solution to the problem. I just got a MacBook and I am having the same problem as you described. I also tried having iTunes open prior to starting Front Row, but no luck.

    I too am having the same problem on my 15" mbp. Very annoying... Hope there is a fix soon.
