    Hello folks! I was wondering if you might be able to help me.
    I'm running Leopard on my G4 1.5ghz 15" Powerbook and it's all going well so far.
    One of the new features that interests me is Front Row and I'd love to put it to use!
    However, as I don't have infrared on my Powerbook, how can I use Front Row without being tied to the keyboard? I have a bluetooth mouse but Front Row doesn't seem to respond to it!! Please help!!:eek:

    Get a KeySpan USB IR or RF remote. Problem solved.

    You can get a Bluetooth remote (clicker) or even download Romeo and use a Bluetooth phone, which is my fav!

    Your BT mouse will not work simply because there isn't any pointer(arrow) while using Front Row.

    Cmd+Esc to launch Front Row, Arrow Keys to move around and Enter to... well, "enter".
