    When watching videos (seems to be with .mpg only) through Front Row (in an up-to-date Leopard), the screen sometimes fades to black for a split moment and back to the video (pretty much as if the screensaver was popping up and instantly decided to close again). This is getting rather annoying and I have no idea what's causing it.

    I'm not sure if this has anything to do with it, but I have EyeTV and I have Flip4Mac and Perian installed, they're all up to date as well.

    Anyone know about this and/or got a fix?

    Have you got Energy Saver on?

    System Preferences > Energy Saver

    You may have a short Sleep/Time Out period which would cause Front Row to exit.
