    I am new to macs, and wonder if anyone can help. I was watching a DVD yesterday using front row, and when i stopped the dvd and came to the front row menu using my remote, it all of a sudden froze on me. The remote did not let me chose other front row applications, nor did it let me come out of frontrow, tried pressing buttons on the keyboard and the mouse nothing happend, i then called applecare, while talking to them all of a sudden it unfroze?? THis has only happend to me once, but has anyone experienced anything like this before, like freezing issues?? If they have? Is apple aware of it? Is der anythin i can do about it? Or shall i just ignore it and wait for an update of the frontrow version from apple?

    Thanks in advance

    Front row is a piece of crap. I've had it freeze on me- Pushing whatever the key combo is to open the force-quit menu usually gets rid of frontrow.

    I actually exited front row, and then had it hang and chew up all my CPU power for a while... I couldn't figure out why my mac was so sluggish when everything was closed... turns out frontrow is a piece of crap. I guess since they didn't really fix it with the 10.4.9 update, you'll probably have to wait for Leopard.. at least that's what I'm doing (I was gona get leopard anyways.)

    Thanks for that. I am going to stop using it now too, if its using up too much CPU i think i'd rather not touch it and just use the normal DVD application on me mac.

    Thanks though :)
